# Testing user sign-up (for integration and QA testers)
If you're new to MailSlurp you may be wondering how you can integrate the service with your own application. That's why we created the MailSlurp Playground (opens new window): a simple React WebApp with a full OAuth2 sign-up, verification, and login process.
We use the Playground to test out our own product and now it's available to everyone at https://playground.mailslurp.com (opens new window).
# How does it work?
The Playground is a simple WebApp with a sign-up and login form. Sign-up requires an email verification step whereby a code is sent to the registered email and must be entered into the Playground confirmation field. Once confirmed a user can login and if successful will be welcomed by a picture of a happy dog.
# Sign Up
The sign-up form looks like so. Each form element has a clear HTML
name attribute such as
password. That way you can write automated tests targeting these elements.
The Playground simulates user email verification. This is a common practice for many applications. After sign-up a random code is sent to the user's email address.
The user must then enter this code on a confirmation page to complete sign-up. This process is typical for modern applications.
The login form looks similar to the sign-up:
# Welcome Screen
A successful sign-up and login will display the welcome screen:
# Other features
There is also a password reset feature. We wrote a detailed post of how to test password reset that uses this.
