Mattermost add non-gitlab users

We currently use gitlab CE, but we’re probably going to buy gitlab EE.

But we are also playing around with mattermost. We would like to use the version bundled with gitlab. Which creates a problem:

We have 3 persons who are not gitlab users. But with mattermost set up to accept gitlab log in, there seem to be no way to add users to mattermost only. We’re obviously not interested in paying gitlab EE for 3 people who do not use gitlab, just so they can log in to mattermost.

But we also don’t want to enable public sign up on our mattermost, as only the employees should be allowed to use the server.

Help! It seems we’re stuck.
