What are patron accounts?

In this article

Some public-facing functions in Springshare apps require an account, like posting on discussion boards or commenting on blog posts in LibGuides. Patron accounts allow you to give access to the commenting/posting features with blog posts and discussion boards while not allowing any access to the admin side of LibApps.

Patron accounts can be created by sending invitations, importing them in bulk via a spreadsheet, or by allowing anyone with an email address from a specific domain to create them on their own.
