Configuring self-registration

In the Customization > General > Self Service Portal > Self-Registration section, you choose the registration options for new customers of the Self Service Portal (SSP).

Enable self-registration - Closedenables self-registration for SSP customers.

When self-registration is enabled, the Register link appears on the Sign In page of the Self Service Portal.

After clicking the link, the self-registering customer will be prompted to enter the name, desired user name and password, and contact information. Alloy Navigator Express will use this data to automatically create a web-only SSP Customer account for that customer and the associated Person record.

The customer will immediately receive an e-mail confirming their registration unless you have selected the Self-registered accounts must be authorized by the manager check box (see below).

IMPORTANT: The Self-Registration option is supported if only you employ Standard authentication for SSP users. If you employ Windows authentication, you can use Active Directory Synchronization for creating SSP Customer accounts automatically.

Notify the manager when users self-register - enables sending the Manager Notification message when any customer is registered. Messages are sent to the e-mail address specified in the Manager's e-mail address field below.

Self-registered accounts must be authorized by the manager - Closedprevents the self-registered customers from gaining access to the SSP without authorization.

When authorization is required, you (or another manager responsible for SSP accounts management) will moderate self-registered accounts before SSP customers can use them. When a registration request is accepted, the registered customer will receive the registration confirmation to the specified primary e-mail address.

For details, see Authorizing pending SSP registrations.
