Managing allowed email domains for self-registration

Patron accounts are required for patron participation in discussion board threads and blog post commenting. If you don't want to create an account for every patron, you can allow your patrons to register for their own accounts, and specify what email domains can self-register for accounts.

To manage the allowed email domains:

  1. From the LibApps dashboard, click on Admin from the command bar and choose Manage Patron Accounts.
  2. Click on the Settings tab.
  3. In the Allowed Email Domains field, add the email domain(s) for email addresses that can be used to register for a patron account.
    • At least one domain is required.
    • Domains should be entered one per line and include the @ character. (ex: @springshare.com).
  4. Click Save.

After enabling the option to allow patrons to register for their own accounts, a link to create an account will be displayed (prior to logging in to LibApps) when attempting to reply to a discussion board thread or comment on a blog post. When a patron beings the process of self-registering, the allowed domains will be lists on the registration page; and attempts to create an account with an unsupported domain will not be processed.
