Question - Creating users only in the backend?

Hi all,

Fairly new to Bubble! In my app I want to have users that only are created by me. So no “signup” button, just a “login” to the portal, as it is a B2B product I want you to only be given an account when I send the customer a link to set a password or something? So basically, no one can just go onto the website and create a user, just when I do it on the backend.

Appreciate being pointed in the right direction of how to go about this!

Many thanks,

Use the ‘Create An Account For Someone Else’ action for this.

Thanks for your reply!

To actually action the new user creation, do I need to set up like an “admin” page that has a button or something that will trigger the workflow? Or can this be done on bubbles backend?

Many thanks

Hello Sam! I have a similar method in one of my apps. My solution involves creating a separate page, such as an admin portal, where you would have a form field with the user’s name, email, and other necessary information. By clicking the “add user” button, a workflow would be triggered to create a user, generate a temporary password, and send an email to the user with a link to the login page and their temporary password. Upon the user’s first login, I would check if they have been onboarded with a yes/no field and show them a popup to change their temporary password to a personal one. After the user has changed their password, I would change their onboarded status to “yes”. I hope this solution helps.

Best regards, Artem.

Hi Artem,
