Description Jan Stavel 2018-12-06 16:27:42 UTC
Description of problem:

I want to use an activation key to subscribe system.

I will fill a field 'Organization'
I will forget to till a field 'Activation Key'
I will click 'Register'

and I see a message 

"Error: Missing username or password."

This message is not clear since I have forgetten to fill the field 'Activation Key'.

The exact message should look like:

Error: Missing username or password or activation key'.

I understand that the application cannot decide whether user wanted to use activation key or username/password.

Just for clarity.
