Can Octopus support both AD and username/password authentication mode at the same time?

Our Octopus Deploy server currently uses active directory authentication mode.

But we would like to have the ability to create built-in user accounts, which can be used for testing purposes.

Is there a way to have both authentication mode (AD & username/password) enabled at the same time?

    Hi Ge,

    Thanks for getting in touch! Yes, Octopus does support the use of both Active Directory and Username/Password authentication simultaneously. If you would like some further reading on different Authentication Providers in Octopus, you can see the following documentation.

    Let me know if this helps or if you have any further questions. :)

    Best regards,
