Sending activation email


The platform enforces the following rules for the /users/{user_id}/send-activation-email endpoint:

  • Only API clients can access this endpoint.

  • An activation email can be sent only to user accounts located in sub-tenants.

  1. Authenticate to the cloud platform via the Python shell.

    The following variables should be available now:

    >>> base_url  # the base URL of the API
    >>> auth  # the 'Authorization' header value with the access token
    {'Authorization': 'Bearer eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsImtpZCI6ImMwMD...'}
    >>> tenant_id  # the UUID of the tenant to which the token provides access
  2. Assign the user_id variable the UUID of a user account created via the API or a user account found via search:

    >>> user_id = created_user_id
    >>> user_id
  3. Send a POST request to the /users/{user_id}/send-activation-email endpoint:

    >>> response ='{base_url}/users/{user_id}/send-activation-email', headers={'Content-Type': 'application/json', **auth})

    The /users/{user_id}/send-activation-email requires empty JSON body.

  4. Check the status code of the response:

    >>> response.status_code

    Status code 204 means that an email message with the activation link has been sent.

    A different status code means that an error has occurred. For the details, refer to “Status and error codes”.
