    Wordpress user creation based on data entered in the JotForm

    Asked by DTC_membership on February 21, 2015 at 01:02 PM

    Hi,

    Is it possible to create a user in the Wordpress framework when JotForm is submitted? is there a plugin or similar that would facilitate creation of the Wordpress user?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately registration and login forms are not allowed in JotForm (indirectly) - you are not able to add the "password" field to any jotform or your account would be breaking our terms of use and would be suspended by our system.

    Now if you do not have the need for password to be captured on the field, you could send the responses to the endpoint in your WordPress installation that would help you capture the submitted data and create the user.

    Unfortunately I do not think that there is any plugin that would allow you to do this, so you would need to create the plugin / change the code yourself in order to do this.

    Alternative would be to have the password created in the jotform (without using password fields, but using form calculation) and email them the password which is in the same time sent to server to be used as such.

    I hope this helps, but do let us know more details or ask us any further questions that you might have if something above is not as clear as you would like and we would be happy to answer them for you.

    You have to use a webhook to create a user in wordpress, however it will have to auto-generate a password for them.

    Yes, that is what I have mentioned in my response as well, but thank you for being more specific. I see that I did not include a link for webhooks at that time so I will use this opportunity to add it now :)

    How to Setup Webhook with JotForm

    The only thing to note is that you could also have the form generate the password for them (as mentioned above), which would allow you to send the email with the password to them, but in the same time would add a bit more complexity to the jotform.

    The most important part is to remember that you can not have password nor username fields on your jotform or your account would be suspended.
