Mutliple 'user' models for authentication #282

Is it possible to have two models, both of which are not called User to login (sort of like two roles but split into models)?

If that is not possible, is it possible to have a single model not named User to login? Say my user model is named Student or something else? I can't seem to find any documentation on this.

I don't think it's possible to have two separate "User" models to log in (but I'm not an authority on this).

What you're looking for on the second bit is the userEndpoint option when you configure authentication (check it out in the docs).

You'll want to configure that endpoint in your services, of course.

If that doesn't make enough sense, I can give you examples (I just had to figure this all out myself).

@ekryski Was this actually implemented? Documentation seems to be scarce on this point!
