Two Factor Authentication




New to the Laboratory ๐Ÿงช is 2FA available for accounts that use username and password authentication over the Google / GitHub social auth.

This is another way to harden your account so that it's that much more secured.

To enable, first request 2FA in the Laboratory. Once enabled for your account, head over to your profile and enable the Two Factor Authentication option.

You'll then need to set up with your favorite authenticator app - such as Google Authenticator, Duo, VIP Access, 1Password, among other options.

Node JS Apps Using Artifact Path

For non Adonis, Nuxt, Strapi, and Directus apps that are Node-based, if you're experiencing issues during deployments or are running across 502 errors, please try updating the cwd path in the web app > settings > build tab. Replace /current with /artifact at the end of the cwd path, save the update and then redeploy.
