Hasura auth

The Hasura auth microservice provides APIs which let you create, authenticate and manage user accounts on your Hasura project. It also lets you manage sessions and roles for users.

Once a user is registered (signed up) on Hasura, the auth microservice attaches a unique integer value called Hasura Identity or hasura_id and a default role 'user' to the user.

These values can be used across microservices to refer to the user registered by the auth microservice. To understand how microservices receive the hasura_id and roles of a user, check out Understanding user sessions.

Hasura auth provides a bunch of admin APIs to perform administrative tasks on your user accounts.
