Let’s look at the steps involved to Create a New TestLink User in this tutorial. By default, TestLink allows users to self-sign up for the TestLink access.
Self user signup
On the login page, we can find the New User? link to self-signup for TestLink access.
To Signup, click on the New User? link.
Fill the necessary details and click on the Signup button.

New users created by self signup process are assigned as Guest role in the TestLink system.
Create TestLink User
On public domain TestLink administrators usually disable the user self signup process due to security reasons. A malicious user can bring down the Testlink server with a possible DDoS attack on the system. Alternatively, TestLink administrator can create user on his/her behalf. User can be assigned the desired role during this process.
Disable New User Signup
As an Administrator if you want to prevent new user signup via the registration form. The only way a new user will be added to the TestLink system will be by the administrator.
Steps to create a user by the admin are as follows:
- Log in as Admin to the TestLink.
- Click on the user icon button in the top menu.
- In the View Users screen, click on the create button to create a new user.
