Account activation modes

There are two account activation modes available in the Bold Reports Report Server.

Automatic activation

When user activation is set to Automatic Activation mode, user accounts will be activated automatically when added in the Bold Reports Server. However, account activation emails will not be sent.

Email activation

When user activation is set to Email Activation mode in the Bold Reports Server, user accounts will not be activated upon addition, and an account activation email will be sent to the provided email address containing an activation link to activate the user account.

The activation link sent to the user will be valid for only 3 days. If the user does not activate within this timeframe, a new activation link will be sent to the user again from the user edit page. For further details, refer to the activate users section.

The account will remain in an inactive status until the user activates it from the activation email.

Note: By default, the setting will be Automatic.
