External Database User

Hello Everyone,

How do we change the user authentication and signup processes to store the user information in a PostgreSQL database using the SQL Database Connector Plugin?

The User filed is sort of ‘baked’ in to bubble, along with some of the core functions of a web application, much like unique IDs are for all data types. You can of course create your own UIDs and passwords on top of bubbles, but you can never get away from what happens behind the scenes.

That being said, there is nothing stopping you from creating your own user type, it will just mean that you cant take advantage of bubbles user workflows and it will probably create more problems that it will solve, and certainly present security issues as you are taking security aspects outside of bubbles closed loop system.
