Activate registration on Phraseanet bases and collections

It is possible to allow user registration on one or more Phraseanet collections using a form accessible from the homepage of the application.

Registration process

The registration process is like many other applications. Users fill and submits a registration form that gives him access to the application and its resources.

The registration is either automatic or goes through an administrator that will check every registration demands.

Manual or automatic registration?

By default, the subscriptions are manual. When a user submits a registration form, functional administrators receive a notification (on the screen and/or by email) indicating a new access request. They check in the Admin section that the registration is legitimate then either validate or reject a subscription application by granting user rights or not. The users that subscribed are then notified of the decision on their application
