Email-based self-registration with Admin confirmation enables a user to create their own account via a "Create new account" button on the login page. The site admins then receive an email containing a secure link to a page where they can confirm the account. Future logins just check the username and password against the stored values in the Moodle database.

Warnings and Cautions
Important information about this plugin that you need to know before you install.
This plugin doesn't produce the same "trigger" as the standard plugin when a new account is created. As a result, if any actions, such as course enrollment, are set to happen based on user profile data the system cron must run before these actions will take place. The impact to Totara enviornments will be greater than that of Moodle sites, since audience membership and program and certification enrollments may be profile dependent. Site Administrators may want to reduce the time for the Audience syncing scheduled task to help minimize the delay.
