Register User

Used for user registration.

There is the possibility of customFields as extra fields for user registration. The information of extra fields is found in setting Accounts_CustomFields in JSON format.

The call format is:

    "msg": "method",
    "method": "registerUser",
    "params": [{
        "email": "String",
        "pass": "String",
        "name": "String",
        "secretURL": "String" // Optional

The response is just the created user’s _id:

    "msg": "result",
    "id": "42",
    "result": "random_id"


In the case there’s an error on the request, a possible error response would be in this format:

    "msg": "result",
    "id": "42",
    "error": {
        "error": 403,
        "reason": "...",
        "message": "... [403]",
        "errorType": "Meteor.Error"

Possible errors

"message": "User registration is disabled [403]",

"reason": "error-user-registration-secret",
"message": "User registration is only allowed via Secret URL [403]",
