Multiple registrations using same email ID

Hey there,

Why is that people can register/sign up multiple times using same email ID?
Now I have duplicate accounts of many people. There seems to be no limit on how many times a person can register.

How can I disable it?


Any advice appreciated.

You sign up with a user name and a password. That’s what is unique.

You can create several accounts with the same email address. That’s valid and there are use cases for this.

BTW there’s no email ID in XWiki, only email addresses.

Ok thanks. In our case we want only one account per email address. Is there any way to do that?

Not out of the box. What you could do is check the Registration page and perform some check on the email address when creating a new user.
