The string that is expected with this parameter option is SAML, CAS, etc.

Note that this is in addition to institution-wide mandatory fields defined by an administrator, as described in Institution-level Cart Customizations.
|rialto_show_unsubscribed_platforms||true/false||Set to true to allow visibility of titles offered by platforms your institution is not subscribed to.

By default, Rialto is configured to show holdings that are suppressed and factor them into queries for holdings. To prevent displaying and querying on suppressed holdings, set to true. For more information, see Show/Hide Suppressed Holdings.
Cart Routing allows selection staff to assign a value of your creation from the cart that acquisition staff can use to filter on from the Orders Awaiting Approval page. To learn more about how your staff can take advantage of this feature, please watch the cart routing training.
To access cart routing configuration, select Configuration menu > Market > Cart Routing.
- Within this table add a row for each value you would like to add. Each row should contain a Code and Description. The Description will appear within the routing option display within Rialto.
- Select "Add Row" after entering the code and description.
- If adding multiple values you can adjust the order of appearance using the arrows within the table.
- Select the default value that will appear to users when multiple values are created.
- Click Customize in the upper right corner.
Rialto Vendor Codes
By default, Rialto orders are mapped to the Rialto vendor. The Rialto Vendor Codes table allows you to attach Rialto orders to a different vendor of choice. This table is also used to define what vendor accounts are used for different order types. To edit vendor codes for Rialto purchases, select Configuration menu > Market > Rialto Vendor Codes.
A vendor and its accounts must be defined in Alma in order for this configuration to work.
To define what vendor and accounts Rialto uses when creating new orders:
- On the RIALTO_VENDOR row, select Customize.
- In the Code column, enter the code for the vendor you would Rialto to use when creating new orders.
- Repeat for each account in order to define where to map firm orders, DDA orders, selection plan orders, and EBA orders.
Multiple different order types can reuse the same account.
Rialto Administrators can now define for which platforms Rialto creates an e-activation task. This enables Administrators to choose which platforms generate an e-activation task.
To edit which platforms generate an e-activation task, go to Configuration menu > Market > Skip E Activation Task.
Customize each row to be "True" (creates an e-activation task), "False" (does not create an e-activation task), or "Default", which uses the value of the "rialto_skip_e_activation_task" parameter under Configuration menu > Market > Other Settings.
