Self-registration means that new users can register themselves at logon.
For more information, see Configuring Self-Registration .
The following figure illustrates the self-registration process with approval.
Self Registration and Approval Process
A new user fills in a form to register him or herself as a user. The user management engine (UME) creates a guest user account. If the user selected a company during registration, the user administrator for this company must approve the user's registration. Until the administrator approves the user, the user has guest user status. Rejected users are not removed from the system. They keep the status of guest users and are assigned to the guest user company, if one exists.
Approval is only necessary if users register themselves as company users. When a user administrator creates a company user, no further approval is necessary.
After self-registration, users get a confirmation of registration to the e-mail address they entered during registration.
User administrators can approve or reject users by choosing New User Requests in identity management.
