IBM Aspera Faspex gives you the ability to allow non-registered
users to request accounts on the Faspex login page. This relieves the workload of
admins and managers. You must ensure that proper security settings have been
put into place before allowing self-registration.
The self-registration feature is turned off by default. Go to
and find the Registrations section.
From the Self registration drop down menu, choose
between three options:
- None: Self-registration is not allowed.
- Moderated: An admin must approve the
account before it is created.
- Unmoderated: Once a user registers an account,
the account is automatically created.
If you allow self-registration, Aspera recommends you use the
setting for security purposes.
Warning: If self-registration is enabled, a user can use it to find
out whether a certain account exists on the server. If a user attempts to
self-register a duplicate account, then the user receives a prompt stating
that the user already exists.
Set the Terms of Service. Users are required to accept
the terms in order to create an account.
Enter one or more email addresses to notify for moderation. These email
addresses are not validated against existing Faspex admins or managers,
but only admins and managers can approve account requests.

the form, admins are required to Approve
the account. Admins can find requests by going to to Approve

After a user self-registers, the new account inherits
the permissions of the configured template user and automatically becomes a member
of designated workgroups. To configure the template user, go to Accounts
> Pending Registrations and click the template
user link. To set the workgroups that newly created users join,
click the workgroups link. For more information about
configuring the template user and workgroups, see Configure Self-Registration Template User.
