Automatic User Creation

These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What's new and planned for ILLiad. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship.

ILLiad will support automatic user creation by leveraging authentication enhancements when requests are submitted to ILLiad from a non-registered user.


  • Automatic User Creation: When an unregistered user logs in to use the ILLiad system a user record can be created automatically using identity information provided by an external authentication system.

Proposed Workflow

After validating and verifying credentials, ILLiad will use imported user data to automatically create a new patron record bypassing the newauthregistration.html form.


  • Staff users will need to specify the minimum amount of data required to auto create the user.
