If we have ILLiad Authentication going into 9.0, what should we be prepared to happen with the passwords?

Symptom
  • You are going to upgrade to 9.0 and you are using ILLiad Authentication, there are password requirements that you are going to have to change your password the first time you logon as patrons and librarians.  You want to know what to expect.
Applies to
  • ILLiad.
Resolution

All patrons and staff will need to change their Passwords. 

1.  Information on how complex you want to make the passwords is found here for staff.

2.  And for patrons.

If you are Self-Hosted and you are using RemoteAuth Authentication, and none of your patrons are using ILLiad Authentication, you will want to update the Patron records so that they do not have an AuthType of ILLiad.  To do this, you will need to run this SQL Query if you are a single site:

Update Users

Set Authtype='Default'

go

 

If you have a shared site and all the sites are not using ILLiad Authentication:

Update UsersALL

Set Authtype='Default'

go

 

If you are a share site of ABC, CBS, and NBC and only ABC will be only using RemoteAuth for all their patrons, then you would do this:

Update UsersALL

Set Authtype='Default'

Where NVTGC='ABC'

go

 

If you are a hosted site, you should let us know before you upgrade if some of the patrons will be using ILLiad Authentication, or if all of the Patrons will be using RemoteAuth Authentication.  We will make the adjustment during the Upgrade process.  You can either call us at 800-848-5800 or email support.
