It looks like Juan is looking for some kind of more advanced self
service portal.
But it is not clear what the specific requirements are.
Juan can you please be more detailed in what are the workflows you have
in mind.
Are you looking for the self service registration with mail
confirmation? If yes this does not exist now and generally IPA is the
domain controller for the controlled environment it is not a good fit
for a general purpose accounting service unless you explicitly extend
it. If this is what you are looking for you can script the addition
flows with CLI or contribute code however you need to be sure your
security mode is sound. We do not want to add functionality that would
allow anyone to self register to any instance of IPA that would be a
security disaster.
