KIQR uses Devise for authentication. Devise is a flexible authentication solution for Rails based on Warden. It is composed of 10 modules:

  • Authenticatable: responsible for encrypting password and validating authenticity of a user while signing in.
  • Confirmable: responsible for verifying whether an account is already confirmed during sign in.
  • Recoverable: takes care of reseting the user password and send reset instructions.
  • Registerable: handles all aspects related to user registration.
  • Rememberable: manages generating and clearing token for remember the user from a saved cookie.
  • Trackable: tracks sign in count, timestamps and IP address.
  • Timeoutable: expires sessions that have not been active in a specified period of time.
  • Validatable: provides validations of email and password. It's optional and can be customized.
  • Lockable: locks an account after some failed sign in attempts.


To configure Devise, you can edit the config/initializers/devise.rb file. Here you can change the default settings for each module.

Remember to restart your server after changing the configuration.
