Create account

Supported in:BlueSpice pro Cloud

In BlueSpice pro Cloud, administrators can invite users to create their own wiki account or they can create an account for them.

To create an account for a new user:

  1. Go to the page Special:CreateAccount
  2. Enter a username and email address. Check the box to send a temporary password to the user.
     CreateAccount page

    If you add a real name, this is the name that is shown throughout the wiki whenever this user makes a change. If you enter a reason here, it is shown in the user creation log of the wiki. This helps other administrators understand why a particular user was granted access to the wiki.
  3. Click Create account.

The account is now active and an email with the temporary password was sent to the new user.
