Subject [jira] Created: (JSPWIKI-266) Add ability to restrict account creation

Add ability to restrict account creation
----------------------------------------

                 Key: JSPWIKI-266
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-266
             Project: JSPWiki
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Authentication&Authorization
            Reporter: Aaron Hamid


This is a formal feature request (because I could not find an existing issue) for the "Admin
Creates User Profiles" Idea here:

http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/IdeaAdminCreatesUserProfiles

Once way to implement it would be, that a different permission, "createProfile", be added,
still configurable in the jspwiki.policy file. This way the desired policy could be configured
such that the admin group has the "createProfile" permission, while the Authenticated have
their "editProfile" permission.

Workarounds are presented here http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/AllowOnlyAdministratorCreateUserAccounts
but have drawbacks, including allowing arbitrary junk accounts or forcing security to be configured
external to the application.

The proposal above, a new "createProfile" permission, seems like a straightforward way to
address this concern directly in the product expanding its usefulness without weird workarounds.
