We have a running rocket.chat instance with >100 users, but i am struggling to set-up automated signup. It should be closed community, so registrations should either be a) approved manually (works perfectly) OR b) done through a secret magic link and then automatically be approved (does not work).
We currently have a) but but also like to have option b) is this doable? I get an error message when I setup and try to access the secret URL Do both methods work in parallel or are they mutually exclusive? Are there good alternatives?
The Invites to a channel only work for existing accounts and not for creating new ones, right?
Thanks for pointing this out! I’ll ask the colleagues for an update!
However, I find the documentation a bit slim on this point.
Would it work as desired after an upgrade? Can users that use this secret link automatically be approved as desired or would this rather move the currently public registration form (that requires manual approval) to a secret URL (still requiring manual approval).
Ideally, I would like to have both: A public form requiring approval and a hidden form or secret key where the accounts automagically get approved and the admins only get a notification.
