Users registration

By default, a SAYMON administrator can create new users via graphical interface (see User and Group Management), Keycloak or LDAP. Also, the administrator can configure SAYMON to let users register by themselves.


In order to setup "self-registration" it is necessary to:

  1. In the User subsection of the Server section of the server configuration file /etc/saymon/saymon-server.conf
    set the variable auth_enabled to true:

        "server": {
            "user": {
                "auth_enabled" : true
  2. In the same section configure the Email subsection.

  3. In the client configuration file /etc/saymon/saymon-client.yaml
    add the parameter authEnabled and set it to true:

    authEnabled: true
  4. Restart SAYMON:

    $ sudo service saymon-server restart
    server.user.auth_enabled parameter also enables the ability to remove user’s own account.


After the configuration is successfully completed, users can register in SAYMON by themselves:

  1. Open the web interface and click the button Registration.


  2. Enter login, email address, password, password confirmation and CAPTCHA and click the button image.

    Password requirements are displayed when there are valid password policies.


  3. Follow the link from the email notification to confirm the registration.

    The text of the email notification can be changed in notification templates.

Interface language can be selected at the top right corner of the registration window:

Language selector is shown only if there are multiple languages defined in the web application configuration.
