Under the Signup/Login > Branding / Signup section of your Management console you can configure self-service signup for your users.
Self-service signup with Identity Cloud is the process of allowing users to initiate and complete their account creation on their own from the Identity Cloud login page.
Self-service signup not allowed
When self-service signup is not enabled, users cannot sign up through the Identity Cloud login page. When users attempt to create an account from the login page, they receive the below warning.
They can sign up using the invite sent from the Management console by the administrator, or through any other signup flow you have based on the Identity Cloud REST API that does not involve the Identity Cloud login page.
Enable self-service signup
To allow self-service signup, enable the feature by selecting the Self-service signup option under the Signup/Login > Branding / Signup section.
The self-service settings applied under Signup/Login (referred to as default settings going forward) apply globally to all users, unless you override them with organization specific settings.
Define signup process
By enabling self-service signup, you allow your users to initiate the signup flow from the Identity Cloud login screen. For this you also need to define how that process is handled:
- by Identity Cloud;
- through a URL to your custom signup solution.
When enabling self-service signup, this solution is default. It is the ready made, built in solution offered by Identity Cloud. The look and feel of the screen appearing to users can be tailored. The steps of the signup process cannot be changed.
With this solution selected, when a user visits your Identity Cloud login page and selects to sign up, they are taken through the Identity Cloud signup process.
URL to your signup solution
When enabling self-service signup, this solution is not default. If you would like to provide your own URL for users to sign up, select this option and enter your custom URL in the field below.
The maximum length of a URL is 2048 characters.
Select Save at the top of the screen for your settings to take effect.
With this option selected, when a user visits your Identity Cloud login page and selects to sign up, they are taken through your custom signup process.
