How to create User Block Definitions?


Steps to create a new user block:

1) Decide which actions may be blocked ("BlockedAction") — loan, renew, and/or requests.
-- To implement this step, please contact Ex Libris. ExL will share the BlockedAction ID to be use.

2) Contact Ex Libris to add the block description

3) Select the "BlockedAction" ID (defined in step #1), the description (defined in step #2), the type value, and 'overridable' flag.

Step #3 is accessed from: Fulfillment Configuration Menu > User Block Definitions
