FAQ - Registration and Logging In

Why should I register in the Micro Focus Community?

Registration lets you take full advantage of the community, enabling you to:

  • Post new messages and reply to other members' posts
  • Receive email when someone responds to a specific post or topic
  • Exchange private messages with other members
  • Personalize your community experience
  • Give Kudos and mark solutions as "Accepted"

How do I register?

Registration takes only a minute; all you need is a Passport account. If you do not have a Passport account, you will need your email address, a login name, a password, and answers for a few typical security questions.

To register:

  • Click "REGISTER" in the dark gray band across any page
  • Enter a Login name., also commonly referred to as a "screen name" (Your login name appears whenever you post or send private messages.) Login names may contain upper and lower case letters, numbers 0-9, underscore or hyphen. No other special characters will work. 

Tips: If you are a business member, please be sure to follow your company's guidelines for screen names. Please also choose carefully: you can't change your screen name after you're registered. There are many thousands of registered members, so you may have to try more than once to find a screen name not already in use.

  • Enter a Password

Tip: Passwords are case-sensitive. Include upper and lower case letters and numbers to make your password more secure.

  • Enter your password again
  • Enter a valid email address
  • You'll be asked to confirm your email. Enter your email address again
  • If you receive a message saying that the email address you have entered is already in use, you already have a Passport account, and you will need to use this account. Follow the prompts to recover your password if you have forgotten it.
  • Fill in other fields as required or desired
  • Select a time zone that matches your location
  • Click "REGISTER"

Note: You must have cookies enabled in your browser to register and to sign in the community.
