[SOLVED] Problem with email verification using cloud functions


I’m trying to send email verifications using cloud functions when a user wants to register or log in and has not verified his email yet. No email verification is being sent(not in the spam folder either) and I’m also not getting any errors in the console.

Moralis.Cloud.define("sendVerification", async (request) => {
  await Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(request.user.get("email"))
    .then(() => {
      console.log("Successfully sent verification email");
    .catch((error) => {
      alert("Error: " + error.code + " " + error.message);

I’m calling the cloud function like this: await Moralis.Cloud.run("sendVerification", {});

What should I do to make it work? is there anything that I’m doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!

Hey @Markus-55

Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification is available only on frontend

Take a look at Moralis is not sending email verification to users

Also it should send email verifications automatically if you set correctly your sendgrid account

Hey @Yomoo,

I have tried to put Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification in the frontend but I’m still not getting any emails and I have verified my email “from” in SendGrid, also when I send emails with Moralis.Cloud.sendEmail({ to:... with cloud functions I correctly get an email.

Is there anything more I need set up in SendGrid to correctly get verification emails? Maybe I have missed something?

It should send verification automatically after you added email.
Could you confirm that it doesn’t work?
If it doesn’t - share your server subdomain and we will check :raised_hands:

I think that you need two templates from sendgrid in your Moralis server config, for example: Sendgrid Verification Email Template ID


Ok I see :+1:
how can I confirm that it doesn’t work?

I tried to do that before, I put the id of the template there and I successfully got an email, but with no verification link. I think I need to add the link, but I don’t know how I can get it and where I need to add it.

Your template should have two curly brackets with variable link in it -
Hi {{name}} {{link}}

The values will get prepopulated accordingly.

Hi Malik,

I have tried that and I only get the text I input i.e: "Hi ", I know that I need to define the name to get text there, but I can’t define the link. I cannot find any variables in the template, I tried to put the variables in the Design Editor “code” and “text” and Code Editor.

Maybe there is something I’m doing wrong?

How does your template look like now?

It looks like this

In the email I only get “Verify your email”

Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but I don’t understand how I can make the verification link work

I just checked my templates and I have this: Hello {{{ link }}} {{{ email }}}

Ok I see, I changed it like yours: Verify your email {{{ link }}}
and in my cloud function it looks like this:

Moralis.Cloud.define("sendVerification", async (request) => {
    to: request.user.get("email"),
    templateId: "d-0c47c30df8d945c0bf6ae1db793d8702",
    dynamic_template_data: {
      link: Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(request.user.get("email"))

I tried to set the link variable to requestEmailVerification() and it worked!
but I get 2 emails, one with the link and the other with map[]

If the email is already verified I only get an email with map[]
If I didn’t set the variable link to anything I would get an email with “Verify your email” like before


It also gets set to true in the dashboard


Any idea why I get two emails?

I think that it is enough to use Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(request.user.get("email")) in order to send an email.

I changed it and now I only get one email! I defined the userEmail in the frontend and passed it to the cloud function call.

const currentUser = Moralis.User.current();
const userEmail = currentUser.attribute.email;
await Moralis.Cloud.run("sendVerification", {userEmail});

and in the cloud function I added userEmail and requestEmailVerification(userEmail)

Moralis.Cloud.define("sendVerification", async (request) => {
    to: request.user.get("email"),
    templateId: "d-0c47c30df8d945c0bf6ae1db793d8702",
    dynamic_template_data: {
      userEmail: request.user.get("email"),
      link: Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(userEmail)

Thank you very much for the help guys! I really appreciate it :grin:

Oh ok, so you mean that I don’t need to set the variable link?

I think that you only have to call Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(userEmail) from front end.

Ok thanks, now I added it to the frontend, saved it in a variable, and passed it to the cloud function call.

const emailVerification = await Moralis.User.requestEmailVerification(userEmail);
await Moralis.Cloud.run("sendVerification", {userEmail, emailVerification});

and I changed link: emailVerification, in the cloud function. It works but I get the email only one time, if I have not verified the email and then login again later I won’t get any other verification email.
Is it supposed to be like that?
