Sign Up ActionLink

Sign up is an action on user entity. Sign up takes four inputs:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Password
  • PasswordConfirm

When the user initiates a Sign up action, the following things happen

  • Check if guests can initiate sign in action
  • Check if guests can create a new user (create permission)
  • Create a new user row
  • Check if guests can create a new usergroup (create permission)
  • Create a new usergroup row
  • Associate the user to the usergroup (refer permission)

This means that every user has his own dedicated user group by default.
