Subject Self-Creation of Self-Service User ID
Date Fri, 14 Apr 2017 18:41:11 GMT
Nazeer or others in the community,

Can we pick up where we last left off on Adi's comments regarding self
creation of a self-service user ID.

This an important component of any self-service app or mobile wallet
powered by Apache Fineract.


*Self-Creation of a Self Service User ID*

Is it possible for a client to create their own self-service user ID or is
that only supported by a back office staff? The use case is as such: I
download the app from the Google Play Store and have a link to "Sign Up". I
click sign up and then should be prompte for my account number or phone
number and then based on that it selects which client account i have in
mifos and I can then create my user ID and credentials.



[Adi] App user creation is a secure operation which needs permissions to
use the APIs. In the scenario that you have mentioned, we need an
intermediate implementation that takes the open requests from clients an in
the background verify and create self serviceusers.
