New Account tool should email users a link to activate their accounts

    Details

    • Property addition/change required:
      Yes

      Description

      To ensure that users are creating accounts using their real email addresses, the New Account tool should be configurable to send an email with a link to activate their account.

      Also, when we add unofficial participants through Site Info, the user eids match their email addresses. For consistency, the New Account tool should have configuration to similarly force the eid to match the user's email address.

      Finally, it would be handy to display instructions in the tool. But note that institutions may have multiple instances of this tool to serve different purposes (eg. to create users with different account types), so the instructions should be configurable in the tool properties.

      The following tool properties are introduced in the New Account tool:
      create-blurb=(text, ie. "Please enter your account details below")
      force-eid-equals-email=false (default)
      ^ If true, removes the field for the user to type their own ID. The eid will be the user's email address
      validate-through-email=false (default)
      ^ If true, integrates with account-validator. Ie. User creates inactive account, email is sent containing a link, user navigates to the link, fills form to complete / activate their account
