Cockpit now has a dedicated community forum: - Feel invited to help each other 🤝

Is it possible to install Cockpit on Ubuntu without Docker?

Is there a way to integrate Cockpit cms users with active directory?

New addon is available for simplifying handling of image styles

is there a way to allow access to modules/collections for a user group in cockpit next defined in the settings?

Dear All,

created recently a new example project that combines cockpit and react to provide a simple headless website based on the concept of components:

working example:

Hope that can be useful for someone.


Hi All,

I'm not sure whether it's intentional, but if you post to a user with additional fields, it simply adds them:

fetch('/api/cockpit/saveUser?token=xxtokenxx', {
method: 'post',
headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' },
body: JSON.stringify({
user: {
// add in usual fields like username, password etc.
meta: { profile: "Hello World"}
.then(user => res.json())
.then(user => console.log(user));

This is a great facility as I use the API to store additional user information that I capture in the user space. The only caveat is that I can't access this additional data from the Administration Control Panel.

So I have two questions if I may:
1. Is this bug/feature going to be removed in future as it would hamper existing plans
2. Is there a way to access these features from the admin panel that I'm not aware of, or shall I issue a feature request?

I'm aware another way of doing it is to create a collection called user profiles and match it to each user, but this seems more cumbersome than simply using the existing user space.


Hi Cockpit looks great. Thanks

I want to deploy cockpit using the docker container. How do I make it talk to an external DB.

Hi everyone,

Might sound like a stupid question but how do I create a new group of users ?

I read in some comments in the group that you do that by going on "/cockpit/accounts/groups" but there is nothing there for me and in "accounts" in the settings I can't find anything either.

Thanks, Cockpit is really nice and managing users is the last step for me before using it for my projects
