Get a preview of how customers will interact with your applications and understand how self-service capabilities empower them to manage personal information, account security, and privacy.
Self-Service Registration provides the ability for customers to create their accounts to access your application(s).
The Default self-service policy comes with the registration capability enabled. Self-registered accounts are created in the application's Default identity store if the store is not changed.
You can make self-registering customers go through account activation before letting them log in for the first time.
When account activation is enabled, customers receive a magic link to the email address they've provided as an identifier where they can confirm their registration.
It's all set: a functioning application is always ready to send out account activation emails the moment you enable this self-service option. For further information see Setup and Manage Customer Notifications.
Account activation is not available for identity stores that only support the 'Username' identifier.
You can offer customers several recovery options to re-gain access to their accounts before they decide to contact your help desk or customers service.
Let your customers ask for a username reminder at login. Depending on which identifiers are required of them by the identity store, customers will be sent the reminder at
the email address they have in their personal information
or the email address they use as an identifier
if they successfully provide a matching email address in the username reminder flow.
Only enable this recovery option if your application's identity store requires a username identifier.
If for any reason, customers didn't receive their one-time passcode (OTP) or Magic Link, they can re-request them via email, SMS, or voice call.

Self-service account management
In their self-service accounts, customers can keep in check their personal information, privacy settings, and enhance their account's security.
Create a friendly self-service URL for your customers that you can easily share to a customer over a phone call when setting up an application.
The Personal Information page provides a space for the customer to update information for their own account, including but not limited to
Address or any attribute which you choose to expose from the application's identity store.
The Account Settings page provides customers the ability to see how they log in, as well as any social login accounts that they may have linked to this account.
The customer also has the ability to delete their own account - removing all of their profile data.
The Security Settings page provides options for customers to configure Multi-factor Authentication settings, change their password, or view and delete any current sessions that may be accessing their account.
If the Passwordless login workflow is being used (via an Adaptive MFA policy) the Change Password screen will not be shown to those customers.
Privacy & data
The Privacy & Data page provides options for customers to view, opt-in, or opt-out to any consent per the consent policy for the application they are using.
Customers can also use this page to download a copy of their account information, supporting data portability requirements for a number of global regulatory standards.
