User Accounts -

Hi! We’re looking into utilizing Memberships to house a webpage for clients to view an exclusive demo content. We want to know if it’s possible for us to setup their account on their behalf.

The ideal flow we want to have is we setup an email and password for them.

  1. They’ll give us the email they want to use.
  2. We’ll generate a unique password that’ll be tied to their account/email
  3. Moving forward, they’ll just have to login with those credentials.
  4. If in any case they forgot the password, we’ll just resend their password or generate another.

Would this be possible inside Memberships?

No, user accounts has a strict flow that includes an email sent to the client.
There isn’t any feasible way to set the password for them even via the update user API.

I’d recommend Memberstack for this, in part because it supports oauth logins so you can use solutions like Google login to minimize password-forgetting.

If you really wanted to just maintain your own “access list” you could roll your own system using e.g. airtable and a reverse proxy, or possibly something like Netlify identity. If your security needs are very low, you could skip the reverse proxy and code it using javascript.

Hi @jcyee.
