SMS integration with user manager

Hi,

Is it possible to integrate an SMS gateway/GSM modem with the usermanager box so that it sends the password of a newly created user to the mobile device of the user automatically? This obviously requires that at the time of creation of a user account there must be a field to mention the mobile phone number of the user.

Thanks and Regards,

Sudipta

Usermanager won't do this, it simply doesn't have a trigger mechanism.

You need to create a customised login portal which can process the request to create a user somehow, and then run some background scripts to perform the SMS notification.

It could be pretty simple really, you could just use an API call to create the user in usermanager, then many SMS gateway services allow you to send an email to their gateway with a mobile number and SMS message in it, then they just convert that to SMS and send it

It's all achievable if you can work with PHP or Perl, and really wouldn't be a huge amount of code.

It would be even easier if you were just using Freeradius as the backend with MySQL, but using the API should allow you to gain access to usermanager that way and do what you need to do.
