Can users create themselves?

A question on user permissions:

What does

user: 
create: false 

mean in a blueprint like site\blueprints\users\editor.yml?

This setting we can find e.g. at Role based permissions in user blueprints.

How can a user create himself ???
What is the difference to

user: 
create: TRUE 

?

I think that is an error in the docs.

@texnixe:
Thanks in advance for correcting the documentation in all necessary places.

[Added:]
In my opinion the following setting should not be possible

user: 
create: TRUE 

@texnixe:
Thank you very much for your change in the docs.

@texnixe:

I am speaking again on almost the same subject, although this time in the opposite direction.

I have added in a template:

<?php echo '$site->permissions():'; dump( $site->permissions() ); ?>
<?php echo '$page->permissions():'; dump( $page->permissions() ); ?>

After comparing the results on the rendered page with the aforementioned documentation page Docs: Role based permissions in user blueprints, I believe that there are differences to the already discussed documentation page:

  site:
    changeTitle: true
  pages:
    changeStatus: true
    duplicate: true
    read: true
    preview: false

Another question is of course whether a choice as of pages: read: false makes sense here.

Thanks for your support.

Off-topic reply just to note the strikingly existential title of this thread :joy: (although I’d suggest an edit to the title ‘him/her-self’ :wink: )

Sorry, I have no rights to do that now. :hot_face:

This thread may is be to old or it is because it has the status “Solved”. I don’t know. May be @texnixe will tell you…
