Self registration with email confirmation


I am starting an application where it should be possible to let a user create his/her own account. I see multiple great examples in the forge on how to do that. However I could not find one where it would let the user confirm the email address before actually getting to the password creation. Does anyone know how to make this work? I figure you need to create a tempory URL to make this confirmation possible, but how?

Hi Robert.

The easy way is:

Then create a link to  verification page that has an input parameter of type GUID.

Every time a user register, write a GUID into his/her User.External_Id and email a link to verification page with that GUID as input.

You can then check if the parameter has the right string (and if not too many days have passed since User.Creation_Date).
