Currently, the only way to approve the users (if they have not properly activated their accounts after registration) is by setting the IsApproved
property of the user to true
using the API. Here is a sample code which you can use to activate an account:
var userMan = UserManager.GetManager(
//you won't need this if you'll be doing it from your site's backend and you already have sufficient privileges to perform this action
//you can also use one of the other overloads of userMan.GetUser()
var user = userMan.GetUserByEmail(
I have logged a feature request in our feedback portal on the following link
to allow admins to approve the users from the Sitefinity backend. Hopefully we will be able to provide this functionality for our future releases. You can vote to increase the popularity of the feature request.
I have also updated your Telerik points accordingly.
