Apperian makes creating the web page easy by providing an iFrame code snippet that you can copy into the HTML of any webpage. You can create a user registration page that includes your own corporate branding and any other content, and then embed the iFrame code within your branded page. The iFrame code includes a unique registration URL for your organization. The Apperian Admin Portal displays this code snippet on the Settings page after you enable the User Self-Registration option. The iFrame allows a new user to create an account, and allows an existing user to download the App Catalog or reset an App Catalog password.
To enable user self-registration
- On the Admin Portal navigation bar, click Settings.
- Click User Self-Registration on the left side of the page.
- Select the Enable user self-registration check box.
Choose whether you want to allow users from any domain to register for Apperian, or if you want to limit registering users to specific email domains.
If you selected Users from specific email domains are allowed to register, you will need to provide a list—a "whitelist"—of one or more allowed domains in the box below the option. You can enter an unlimited number of domains; enter each domain on a separate line.
If you save a whitelist of domain names but then later disable user self-registration or switch to allow users to register from any domain, the list of domains will still display in the whitelist box but they will not affect the registration process. This is for your convenience so that you do not need to reenter the domains if you later decide to re-enable the feature.
- Click OK to display the iFrame code snippet that you can copy and insert into the HTML for your company's user registration web page. This code will allow users to sign up for Apperian, download the App Catalog, and reset their App Catalog password. Optionally, you can modify the iFrame code snippet to hide the Phone field or specify a custom landing page when the user clicks OK. For instructions, see Modifying the iFrame.
Modifying the iFrame
You can modify the iFrame code snippet to make one or both of the following changes:
Hide the Phone Field
You can specify that the optional Phone field not display in the iFrame.
To hide the Phone field:
At the end of the url parameter, add this string:
<iframe src="&phone=hide" width="335px" height="240px"><p>Your browser does not support iframes.</p></iframe>
Specify a Custom Landing Page
By default, when a user clicks OK, a default "Account Registered" message displays in the iFrame. You can change this to display your own custom "success" landing page.
To specify a custom landing page:
Change the value of the
url parameter from
default to the URL for your custom page.
