What is Site Authorisation and how to use it? 


Site Authorisation settings provide additional security to ensure that unauthorised users cannot register for access to the site. In order to be allowed to self-register, users will be prompted for a 'Key'. The 'Key' will be provided by e.g. a store manager, or a hospital educator and could be for example: "CoffsHarbour200" or "Greenslopes101". Upon correctly entering the key, users will see the self-registration form, along with a welcome message corresponding to the key. 

Use Self Registration Keys and welcome messages to lock access to the Registration form and provide tailored 'Welcome' messages. 

  1. Self-Registration keys are only available when 'Site Authorisation' is enabled. 
  2. When using 'Site Authorisation', you should specify at least one 'Key' - otherwise users will not be able to get to the registration form. 
  3. Welcome Messages are optional.
