Endpoints

All endpoints here are relative to the path the app’s URLs are included under.

Registering a New User

Once a user has submitted the registration form successfully, they will receive an email to verify their email address.

Due to privacy concerns related to exposing email addresses, a registration request with an email that is already in use will not fail. Instead it will send an email to the previously registered address notifying them of the registration attempt.

POST /register/
Request JSON Object:
 
  • <User.USERNAME_FIELD> (string) – The user’s username.

Response JSON Object:
 
  • <User.USERNAME_FIELD> (string) – The username the user was created with.

Status Codes:
  • 201 Created – The request was successful and an email has been sent to the provded address.
  • 400 Bad Request – An invalid request was made. Check the response data for details.

Resending a Verification Email

If a user lost the original verification email or it has expired, this endpoint can be used to send a new verification.

  • email (string) – The address to resend a verification email to.
Response JSON Object:
 
  • email (string) – The address the new verification email was sent to.

POST /verify-email/

  • key (string) – The verification key the user received.
