Adding auth.users of Supabase within refine app

I am creating an app with an admin panel using Supabase. I want to add users to Supabase's auth.users table from within the app. How should I do this? I would like the school administrators to be able to register students (email and password) using the app. According to the Refine manual, it seems possible to add to public tables, but not to the auth table. Also, AuthProvider's register seems to be for direct user operations, so I think it's not applicable here.

Hi @takebayashi. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To add users to Supabase's auth.users table from within your Refine app, you can utilize the register method provided by the authProvider. This method is designed to handle user registration, including adding users to the auth.users table in Supabase. Here is a step-by-step guide to achieve this: 1. Ensure authProvider is Set Up: Make sure your authProvider is correctly set up in your App.tsx file. This is essential for handling authentication operations.
import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import authProvider from "./authProvider";

function App() {
return (
<Refine
authProvider={authProvider}
//...
/>
);
}

export default App;

import { Refine } from "@refinedev/core";
import authProvider from "./authProvider";

function App() {
return (
<Refine
authProvider={authProvider}
//...
/>
);
}

export default App;

Source (https://refine.dev/docs/data/packages/supabase/#understanding-the-auth-provider) 2. Implement the register Method in authProvider: The register method in the authProvider is used to sign up new users. This method uses Supabase's signUp method to add users to the auth.users table. Here is an example implementation of the register method:
import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { supabaseClient } from "../utility";

export const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
register: async ({ email, password }) => {
try {
const { data, error } = await supabaseClient.auth.signUp({
email,
password,
});

if (error) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}

if (data) {
return {
success: true,
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}
},
// other methods...
};

import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { supabaseClient } from "../utility";

export const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
register: async ({ email, password }) => {
try {
const { data, error } = await supabaseClient.auth.signUp({
email,
password,
});

if (error) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}

if (data) {
return {
success: true,
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}
},
// other methods...
};

Source (https://refine.dev/blog/refine-pixels-2/#refine-s-authprovider-prop) 3. Create a Registration Form: Create a form in your admin panel that allows school administrators to register students. This form should collect the student's email and password and then call the register method from the authProvider. Here is an example of how you might implement this in a React component: ``tsx import React, { useState } from "react"; import { useAuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core"; const RegisterStudent = () => { const [email, setEmail] = useState(""); const [password, setPassword] = useState(""); const authProvider = useAuthProvider(); const handleRegister = async () => { const result = await authProvider.register({ email, password }); if (result.success) { alert("Student registered successfully!"); } else { alert(Error: ${result.error.message}`); } }; return ( <div> <h2>Register Student</h2> <input type="email" value={email} onChange={(e) => setEmail(e.target.value)} placeholder="Email" /> <input type="password" value={password} onChange={(e) => setPassword(e.target.value)} placeholder="Password" /> <button onClick={handleRegister}>Register</ ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

how to get uuid of registered user in RegisterStudent function? @kapa.ai how to get uuid of registered user in RegisterStudent function?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To get the UUID of the registered user in the RegisterStudent function, you can modify the register method in the authProvider to return the user data, including the UUID, upon successful registration. Then, you can access this data in the RegisterStudent function. Here is how you can achieve this: 1. Modify the register Method in authProvider: Update the register method to return the user data, including the UUID, upon successful registration.
import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { supabaseClient } from "../utility";

export const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
register: async ({ email, password }) => {
try {
const { data, error } = await supabaseClient.auth.signUp({
email,
password,
});

if (error) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}

if (data) {
return {
success: true,
user: data.user, // Return the user data
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}
},
// other methods...
};

import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { supabaseClient } from "../utility";

export const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
register: async ({ email, password }) => {
try {
const { data, error } = await supabaseClient.auth.signUp({
email,
password,
});

if (error) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}

if (data) {
return {
success: true,
user: data.user, // Return the user data
};
}
} catch (error: any) {
return {
success: false,
error,
};
}
},
// other methods...
};

2. Access the UUID in the RegisterStudent Function: Update the RegisterStudent function to handle the returned user data and extract the UUID.
import React, { useState } from "react";
import { useAuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";

const RegisterStudent = () => {
const [email, setEmail] = useState("");
const [password, setPassword] = useState("");
const authProvider = useAuthProvider();
const handleRegister = async () => {
const result = await authProvider.register({ email, password });
if (result.success) {
const userUUID = result.user.id; // Access the UUID
alert(`Student registered successfully! UUID: ${userUUID}`);
} else {
alert(`Error: ${result.error.message}`);
}
};

return (
<div>
<h2>Register Student</h2>
<input
type="email"
value={email}
onChange={(e) => setEmail(e.target.value)}
placeholder="Email"
/>
<input
type="password"
value={password}
onChange={(e) => setPassword(e.target.value)}
placeholder="Password"
/>
<button onClick={handleRegister}>Register</button>
</div>
);
};

export default RegisterStudent;

import React, { useState } from "react";
import { useAuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";

const RegisterStudent = () => {
const [email, setEmail] = useState("");
const [password, setPassword] = useState("");
const authProvider = useAuthProvider();
const handleRegister = async () => {
const result = await authProvider.register({ email, password });
if (result.success) {
const userUUID = result.user.id; // Access the UUID
alert(`Student registered successfully! UUID: ${userUUID}`);
} else {
alert(`Error: ${result.error.message}`);
}
};

return (
<div>
<h2>Register Student</h2>
<input
type="email"
value={email}
onChange={(e) => setEmail(e.target.value)}
placeholder="Email"
/>
<input
type="password"
value={password}
onChange={(e) => setPassword(e.target.value)}
placeholder="Password"
/>
<button onClick={handleRegister}>Register</button>
</div>
);
};

export default RegisterStudent;

By following these steps, you can successfully register a user and retrieve their UUID in the RegisterStudent function. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
