In the table in the "The XML Format Input File"-section in "How to Use the Patron Loader Interface (PLIF) (file-20) - 20.pdf" Z303-ID (and the related ID-fields in Z304, Z305 and Z308) are marked as mandatory.
How can we provide this ID for new partrons?
We recommend to set DEFAULT-BOR-ID=Y in ./xxx50/tab/tab100.
Then PLIF will automatically calculates the Z303-ID based on last-bor-id and there is no need to provide the data in the XML input file.

Inserting Users - Additional Information
When a new record does not have the Z308 records that are required for a new patron
(i.e., the "00" type, which is the login-by-internal-id, and the "01" type, which is the
login-by-barcode), tab100 DEFAULT-BOR-ID is consulted. If the value is "N", the
"00" type record must supplied in the input-file. If the value is "Y", the system
automatically generates the necessary Z308 records for the new patron. Note that the
matching data is not considered login information, since it is lacking a verification
