Email_verified flag sends Magic Link email instead of Email Verify email on new user create

I’m currently using the node ManagementClient to create new users via the API.

My application is also using Access Code emails to enable OTP password use for existing users within my system.

When I’m creating new users though and setting email_verified to false when creating users, Auth0 is sending the users the Access Code email instead of the Verify Email template email and it’s confusing my users.

Is there a reason why Auth0 would send Access Code vs the actual Verify Email?

I’m trying to figure out how to possibly use Rules to send the verify email out or to hook up but all of this seems overkill for something, which to me, doesn’t make sense – why send Access Code emails when those templates aren’t needed for the actions to take!?

Any suggestions would be appreciated
