Consumer developers self-register for access to your API Community. You can then approve member registrations to give them access to the restricted sections of your community.
|Registered members require a license. No license is required for guest users. For full information about licenses refer to the Licensing Overview.|
When consumer developers browse your community as unregistered users (guests), they can view only limited information.
Consumer developers follow these steps to self-register:
Navigate to the community to which they want access.
Select Log in.
Select Not a member?
Enter their community username and password.
Select REGISTER to submit the registration request.
After a registration request is sent by the member, you will receive a notification email. To review and approve the member registration, navigate to the ACM Control Panel.
Select Manage Members. This section provides the status of all consumer developer registration requests.
To activate the member and trigger a welcome email, select Approve and confirm the change.
To reject a registration request, select Reject and confirm the change.
After you approve a registration request, a welcome email is sent to the consumer developer.
To complete registration, the member must click an email verification link in the email and specify a new password. The consumer developer can then log in to your community. When the member’s status is Active, additional options become available to the developer, such as Forums and My Applications.
(Optional) To deactivate a member, disable the Active setting for that member and confirm the change.
Select the options menu to specify the number of registration requests to display on each page, and to Show rejected users or Hide rejected users.
In the ACM Control Panel, the Manage Members tab shows a Search Members field.
Enter one or more terms into the search field. Search results are listed in Members and Pending Member Registration Requests.
You can filter search results with the following filter attributes:
To use a filter attribute, type the attribute name followed by a colon and the value for that attribute.
For example, filtering with
userName:Smith only shows members with names that include "Smith",
Search terms without a filter attribute only apply to member fields that are not filtered. For example, the
userName:com Jones shows members that include "com" in the "Username" field and "Jones" in any field
other than "Username".
