Register User


This plugin also allows you to create WordPress users.

This option is disabled by default, but you can enable it at any time.

In order to create users, you just have to make a POST request to the route URL, and send an email and a password as parameter and the new user will be created.

New types of users

You can select the type for the new users:

  • editor
  • author
  • contributor
  • subscriber
  • any custom role that you have set up in your WordPress

Also, you can set a specific user role on Auth Codes, and when that AUTH_CODE is used, the user will be created with that specific user role.

Limit user registration

Also, you can limit the user creating only for specific IP addresses or specific email domains.

Random password generator

Another cool option is “Generate a random password when a new user is created”. If this option is selected, the password is no more required when a new user is created, instead, a random password will be generated.

Also, you can specify the length of the random password. The minimum length is 6 characters, and the maximum is 255.

Force login flow after register

Another option that you have for registered users is “Initialize force login after register”. When the user registration is completed, the user will continue on the flow configured on the login configuration.

If auto-login is disabled, this feature will not work and the registered user will go on a normal flow and return a JSON response.

Custom user meta

If you want to add custom user_meta on user creation, just add the parameter user_meta with a JSON. This will create user_meta for the new user.
