SSPR User Activation Clarification


I need clarification on the following section of SSPR:

4.4 Enabling New User Registration

http://tinyurl.com/oaocaco

Do the user create their password during new user registration? Or after
they have activate the account?

4.5 Enabling User Activation

http://tinyurl.com/na9tvgu

In the guide, it is mentioned that "The User Activation module allows
first-time users to activate their account and set a temporary
password"

So, the user set a temporary password for themselves? Or SSPR will
generate a temporary password for user to log-in and a change password
is required?

According to the guide, we configure token send method. How does token
work here? Does the user have to enter the token before they can
activate the account? Or the temporary password is referring to this
token?

Please explain

thanks

The New User registration process includes setting the password for the
newly created account.

SSPR will allow a user who has never set a password on their account to
set their first password. It does this by using the configured LDAP
proxy account to set the initial password provided by the user.

A user would either go through the New User registration if there is no
existing ldap account, or the User Activation section if there is an
account but they do not have the password for it. A user would not
typically ever use both functions.

If a token send method is configured for either new user registration or
account activation, the user must receive and enter that token value
before that process can be completed.

Hope this helps.
