Can codidact be used separately from the codidact network with custom local user management?

I am a research assistant at a technical university and have been tasked by our chair to find a software to host our internal Q&As on.

My collegues and I have been doing small code snippets and lengthy calculations and made frequent use of the stack exchange network, so it felt natural to us to use their product or a similarly structured software like codidact.

However, we ran into some issues with stack exchange for teams, as our university mandates, that we use only self/locally hosted solutions. With this requirement, we are not elegible for the discouted stack exchange price, which they offer for educational purposes.

I have been setting up a codidact testing environment on my machine, and I noticed only after completing the setup, that while the site is running locally, the user management is not. I would rather reuse our own existing authentication and credentials framework.

So my question is this: Can codidact (when locally hosted) be used separately from the codidact network with our own user management?

Hi! Developer here. When you say the user management is not running locally, what do you mean? Users are managed in a MySQL database that you set up as part of the initial setup process, so user data is wherever your database is. Are you looking for OAuth or SSO/AD sign on instead?
