Registration Form triggers for CB Auto Actions

1 month 1 week ago #324175 by mlilge
Hi,

I need to execute a DB query before a Registration From is displayed and right after the registration request is submitted. New users get invited with help of CB Invites.

I wonder which are the right CB Auto Action triggers for these two scenarios as there are many options.

The triggers shall be unrestricted, i.e. always firing the DB query.

Any help would be appreciated!

Found the trigger for the first AA myself or at least one that makes sense to me:

'onBeforeRegisterFormDisplay' seems to fire just before the Registration Form is rendered. 'onBeforeRegisterForm' works as well, however, differences between these triggers are not clear to me.

Still struggling to find the second trigger (if there is any) just when the user hits the button of this form to complete his registration. Any ideas anybody?

The following should be used for non-blocking behavior during registrations and user updates. For example if you need to modify the value of a users field after they register or update their profile. Another example being you need to push information to an external service or database.

onAfterUserRegistration = frontend registration
onAfterNewUser = backend registration
onAfterUserUpdate = frontend edit
onAfterUpdateUser = backend edit

As for directly before the rendering and display of the registration form and after it use the following.

onBeforeRegisterFormDisplay = before frontend registration form
onAfterRegisterFormDisplay = after frontend registration form

Those 2 triggers directly wrap around the form. Other registration form triggers are earlier in the process. For example onBeforeRegisterFormRequest or onBeforeRegisterForm would be used to block access to registration entirely

Thanks Kyle!

Do I understand correctly, there is no trigger to e.g. implement a final check on the entered data right after the user clicked the button but before user data are actually stored?

Or would that be the 'onBeforeUserRegistration' trigger? If so, would it be possible to reject the registration process with a meaningful message or error code?

There's triggers for that as well. They are as follows.

onBeforeUserRegistration = frontend registration
onBeforeNewUser = backend registration
onBeforeUserUpdate = frontend edit
onBeforeUpdateUser = backend edit

The way to interrupt registration is to either raise an error to the $_PLUGIN global or set one on the user object using ->setError( 'ERROR MSG HERE' ). I can't really suggest anything further without knowing more about what you're trying to do exactly.

Ok, this makes sense.

The feature is to check the validity of a registration code that either may be already expired when starting the registration process or when the user has submitting his data.

A code's individual expiry date is stored in a db table and a first AA Query shall just delete expired registration codes that will cause an error notification on that field of the form (onBeforeRegisterFormDisplay). That's already implemented and works just fine.

If the user is very slow a code may still be valid in the beginning of the registration processs but may have expired at submission time. The system is very picky, hence I like reject such attempts, too. So, I would need a second AA that does more or less the same check (and deletion) but most likely has to display an error message to the user (onBeforeUserRegistration).

From your explanation I'm not sure whether this would be an AA Query with an additional Output - echo php coded message (if that is supported by this trigger) or a AA Code?
