How to automatically create home directories for new users while logging into RStudio Web UI

Hello All,

Our new users are getting "Unable to connect to service" error while logging into WebUI since they don't have a home directory in the server. The error gets fixed when you login via ssh and a home directory gets created. Problem is we donot want all our business users to login to the server via ssh since it requires a lot of other jump host access. Is it possible to create the home dirs automatically in the server when they login to the UI for the first time.
