    Users have owner SIS although they were not imported by SIS

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version:
    • Relevant for Installation Type:



    Above some user records there is a field "Owner: SIS" displayed although these user records were definitely not imported by SIS. Where do these records come from?


    This happens when users are created from the Manage Patron Services desk by clicking the Register New User button.

    The explanation for this system behaviour is as follows:

    The option to add a user from the patron services desk is intended for a workflow where a user shows up at the desk requesting services, but their SIS feed has not come in yet. This allows to quickly register the user, while inputting enough information that will enable to hook the record to the expected SIS feed. It is not intended for a regular registration, which is always for internal users.
