By default, Asset Bank is configured so that new users who register in the application have to be approved before they can log in. If this is not required, the need for approval can be turned off by setting users-can-register-without-approvalto true. If approval is disabled, it is possible for admin users to be sent an email every time a new user registered, which is done by setting send-admin-user-reg-emails to true.
If approval is turned off, the user will receive an email confirming their registration, and can access Asset Bank straight away. If approval is enabled, admin users or Org Unit admin users (see Who receives an alert (email) when a user registers using the Registration page?) will receive an email alerting them to the registration. In both cases the emails that are sent can be customised in the Admin > Content area.
If users do require approval, this can be done from the Admin > Approve Users page. This page lists users who have registered and have not yet been approved, along with the date on which they registered and the organisation to which they belong if they entered one during registration
Click on the ‘view' link next to a user to view the Approve User page.
This page allows you to approve or reject users who have registered with Asset Bank but have not yet been approved or rejected. You can set the user's permissions by choosing user groups for them, and optionally set their expiry date, after which they will no longer be able to log in.
By default, the user will be sent an email with a link to a webpage where they can complete their registration and set a password. You may also include a personal message to the user which will be included at the bottom of the email.
Once you choose to approve the user they will be able to log in; rejected users will not, and will be removed from the list of unapproved users.
