Register new users via CB Auto Actions was created by MarlonFungai
Hi guys I have an external system that I need to integrate with CB. The system needs me to add users using a url call and passing the mobile number of the user and email address of the user as well as a message field value. I know auto actions has a registration type auto action but I can't find docs on how can use it to do what I need please help.

You should be able to create the following auto action to do that. Please keep in mind Joomla requires username, email, and name to create a valid user so you will have to supply all 3. They can however all 3 just be set to email address if that's all you have.

Triggers: None
Type: Registration
User: Automatic
Access: Everybody
Field: Custom > Value
Custom Value: [get_token]
Operator: Equal To
Username: [get_email]
Email: [get_email]
First Name: [get_email]

With the above we're securing the auto action using a token so random people can't just guess it via the auto action id. Replace TOKEN_VALUE_HERE with whatever token you like (e.g. 5FirN3RTgGhDXwjHc) as it's basically a password. Use the "Fields" usage to set custom fields values. For example with your mobile phone number you might have the below.

Field: cb_phone
Value: [get_phone]

The get_ in your substitution lets you access parameters from the URL. If your external system is sending this information with a POST use post_ instead of get_. Below is an example of what your auto action URL to be used by your external system. You can find this URL under the Global tab after saving your auto action.


Now we need to add our custom information to this, which would look like the below.
