Configuring Emails for Self-Service Registration

To configure emails for self-service registration, you can add the following code block to the selfservice-registration.json file:

    "name" : "emailValidation",
    "identityEmailField" : "mail",
    "emailServiceUrl" : "external/email",
    "emailServiceParameters" : {
        "waitForCompletion" : false
    "from" : "",
    "subject" : "Register new account",
    "mimeType" : "text/html",
    "subjectTranslations" : {
        "en" : "Register new account",
        "fr" : "Créer un nouveau compte"
    "messageTranslations" : {
        "en" : "<h3>This is your registration email.</h3><h4><a href=\"%link%\">Email verification link</a></h4>",
        "fr" : "<h3>Ceci est votre mail d'inscription.</h3><h4><a href=\"%link%\">Lien de vérification email</a></h4>"
    "verificationLinkToken" : "%link%",
    "verificationLink" : "https://localhost:8443/#/registration/"

As suggested by the code block, it includes default registration email messages in English (en) and French (fr). The verificationLink sent with the email takes users to the IDM self-registration URL.

As noted in "Managing User Self-Registration Over REST", you can make these changes over the following endpoint URI: /openidm/config/selfservice/registration

If desired, you can also configure self-service registration emails through the Admin UI. Select Configure > User Registration. If needed, activate the Enable User Registration Option. Under the Options tab, in the Email Validation box, select the icon. The Configure Validation Email pop-up should appear.

When you use the Admin UI to customize self-registration emails, you can review the changes in the selfservice-registration.json file.
