I need to let anonymous users create his/her own accounts. But also I wish to create accounts when logged in as administrator. Is it possible such configuration? In admin/config/people/accounts is not possible, it just let you choose between exclusive options...

You can always create users as an administrator by going to admin/people/create.

So, in admin/config/people/accounts, in the Who can register accounts? you can choose Visitors and you will be good to go.

  • Great! Thank you. And what about if I want a user (with some specific role) to create new accounts? Oct 23, 2015 at 19:31
  • Sure. You can assign that permission to any role. Just go to admin/people/permissions and check the "Administer users" checkbox for the role you want to grant that permission.
