I am using a custom service to manage users and when i try to authenticate using email password it gives an error : a record with email of '' did not exist and Invalid login error

But when i changed to in-memory user service it works like a charm.

Module versions (especially the part that's not working): Feathers Auth 2.1.5

At the moment a custom users service has to support

  • An id property which contains the name of the id field
  • Support a find method with params.query = { email } (email or usernameField ) to find the user/entity by the field name. It will work with or without pagination (either an array or an object with data in the array)
