Well, as you were. As if by magic, the issue resolved. Nevermind!
Unsolved Avoiding E-Mail verification in case of LDAP login
Regarding current 1.18.4 we've enable LDAP authentication using the nodebb-plugin-sso-open-ldap plugin. We only allow internal user logins having an LDAP entry and thus don't want to see any E-Mail confirmations assuming directory data being valid.
I'm thus looking for an option to simply accept an e-mail address being provided by an LDAP server on first nodebb server login without sending a subsequent confirmation link.
Second question: Generated e-mail address confirmation mails currently contain confirmation links like e.g. http://localhost:4567/confirm/ad97cf30-a162-410d-9c7c-99e027cd2d61. This of course relates to the internal nodebb Server behind our NginX frontend server. So I'd like to specify replacing
https://ourdomain.org/. I've already set the server's Settings --> General --> Site Settings
URLentry accordingly to no avail.
You need to set the url in config.json to exactly the url at which you access your site.
@pitaj Fount it, thx! Any idea for my first question?
@goik You will need to have the plugin call
await user.email.confirmByUid(uid);when the account is created.
But a different question -- do you need to have the account confirmed? By default privileges are set up so that both confirmed and unconfirmed accounts can post new topic/replies, etc., so there is no functional difference except that outgoing emails won't be sent to unconfirmed emails.
If it's merely to "check a box", then maybe it is ok to just not confirm any emails.
Might be the plugin needs updating to auto-confirm email addresses.
