Auto actions email to specific user group on registration

1 week 4 days ago #316636 by softforge
Hi
I have used the really helpful documentation here
www.joomlapolis.com/documentation/279-community-builder/tutorials/18362-registering-a-user-through-cb-api
to register users via salesforce and who are coming via an external table into a VIP members group.

That works great.
But I want a specific registration details email message for this user group.
If I change the email in the CB settings configuration->registration tab
That will apply to all the user groups and not just to the ones I am adding via this script. Joe public still needs to register as using that, so how can I send an email to just this user group, call them "VIP Members" that are registered via the script?

I could I guess use auto actions, but which action would fire if I used the script to register them?

I could do it via the script that I have written if auto actions cannot do that but the other question that applied to both is how can I stop the generic registration that I currently get from being sent? Other wise they will get the configuration->registration tab one and the auto actions/my script one

Thanks

Phil

Registration emails are sent in activateUser. Probably easiest way to override them is to temporarily override the configuration global for those emails. Example of how to do this as follows.

global $ueConfig;

$existingPending				=	$ueConfig['reg_pend_appr_msg'];
$existingWelcome				=	$ueConfig['reg_welcome_msg'];

$ueConfig['reg_pend_appr_msg']	=	'NEW_PENDNG_EMAIL';
$ueConfig['reg_welcome_msg']	=	'NEW_WELCOME_EMAIL';

$messagesToUser					=	activateUser( $user, 1, 'UserRegistration' );

$ueConfig['reg_pend_appr_msg']	=	$existingPending;
$ueConfig['reg_welcome_msg']	=	$existingWelcome;

Both the pending and welcome configuration are sent through translations so you can just specify a language key in the replacement then translate them using language overrides.

Thanks for the reply.
I am lost as to where I am doing this.
" temporarily override the configuration global "

Where would I do this? In my script as I cycle through each new registration? Or somewhere else?

In your script. If you followed the tutorial you should have the below.

$messagesToUser			=	activateUser( $user, 1, 'UserRegistration' );

My above reply provides a way to override the emails configured in CB > Configuration > Registration specifically for that usage and then reverts the change. You can override pending, welcome, or both emails.
