Hi! Wanted to better understand how passwords are working here under the hood, especially in the context when deploying this. Ran into a case where when running yarn develop locally, I can access the admin dashboard, but when I package everything up in a dockerfile, I’m unable to login to the resulting strapi instance running on k8s.

Are the admin accounts/authentication stored inside the db? (In which case it makes sense here since these different instances have different DBs). Wanted to get ahead of some of these concerns though since also having difficulty logging in for some instances and it’s unclear why
