  2. Ask new users to confirm their password when they register is configured to No
  3. Ask new users to provide their email address when they register is Yes, Mandatory
  4. Ask new users to confirm their email address when they register is set to "Yes" (Recommended)
  5. Allow new users to register in system is set to With User Name and Third-party
  6. The Message Template Standard notice for a self-registration is set to Active.
