Auth None

To disable authentication against a deepstream server altogether, either set the auth type to none in the server's configuration file.

type: none

Or use the --disable-auth command line argument.

./deepstream start --disable-auth

The deepstream startup log should confirm that authentication is disabled.


Even with authentication type none, users can still provide an (unverified) username by sending {username: 'johndoe'} at login.

client = new DeepstreamClient('localhost:6020')
client.login({ username: 'johndoe' })

If no username is provided, deepstream will default to OPEN.
