Hello,

I'm considering updating a clients website web.config file to require unique email addresses for registration. My question is, will this affect currently registered users (some of the existing accounts have duplicate email addresses) or only user registrations going forward?

Thanks.

Jim

Jim,
from DNN 7.4.0 it does affect all existing users as well (and Support updating email addresses), therefore you should solve the duplicates prior to enabling the setting, otherwise you won't be able to turn it on (DNN 7.4.0+) or it will be turned back off during the upgrade. See Community Blog post by Philipp Becker for Details.

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for the information. But it appears that his blog post is about setting the "Email Address as Username" option in the user settings (via the portal) instead of setting the "require unique email" component to "true" in the web.config file. Or is it the same thing? And either way, there's no issue with me editing the user accounts to remove duplicate email addresses. It's a development site right now so there are only a few users, but when officially launched there should be ~1,000 users registered fairly quickly.

Thanks again.

Jim

Jim,
unique emails are a requirement for using email for login, right?

Hi Sebastian,

Maybe I'm misunderstanding how this process works (or I'm not explaining it very well) -- I don't want to use email addresses for login.

I did see in the "user account settings" you can select "use email address as username" which I assume is what you were referring to.

But, I still intend for new users to provide a normal user name (not their email address). I just wanted to disallow an email address to be used more than once to avoid users creating multiple accounts with the same email address. This field is titled "Requires Unique Email" and defaults to "false" and cannot be changed via the portal control panel. The only way to change it to "true" is to change the setting from "false" to "true" in the web.config file.

Jim
