Register via api

Greetings everyone,

We’ve been trying to find a way to register our users via ogs api,
but unfortunately we only find a way to login but not register
so quite curious if its possible

and if so, would really appreciate if shared how, tnx!

I would imagine account creation is not something you want a spammer to easily do 1000 of a second, so maybe it doesn’t exist, or if it does has some extra protection.

You do have a point, but an api is only like an “official” way of talking with a server, which wouldn’t just randomly break as the service/site evolves, and the api can ask for the same amount of verification as the site form

and even without an api, anyone with the right expertise can build a script that would spam directly with a sites registration form

but for production purposes, using anything other than the “official way/api”, would be a bad practice


I don’t know that API very well, but the website, and third party apps are open source, so you may be able to parse out what they do. I believe the endpoint is api/v0/register

Here’s the code for registration via

OnlineGo (Android):

Surround (iOS):

Actually, this app just redirects to the website for registration…


awesome!, this looks very promising

will be immediately testing it, thanks!!

I’m definitely also interested in this!

Any idea what the ‘ebi’ is?

It looks like the Android app is using a websocket to register?

What makes you say that? Given that the object is ogsRestService I assumed it was just the REST API (HTTP), and as far as I can tell, the code I linked is performing a standard POST request.
