External invitations


People outside of the Starmind network can be invited via their email-addresses through these Endpoints. Invitations always happen in behalf of the issuing user, including his profile-picture.

Attention: No content information will ever be revealed outside of the network via these endpoints. When sharing content, or recommending someone as an expert, direct links to corresponding entities (like questions or solutions) will be contained in the email.

If invitation_email_allowed_domains are specified, it is not possible to send external invitations to email addresses whose domain is not listed in that setting.
