    Direct URL link to My Account

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16.02

    Description:
    We are redesigning our library site and would like to add a direct link to "My Account" on our home page. I am having some trouble setting up this up.

    Resolution:
    You want to use something like this:

    http://alephsvr.xxxxx.edu:8991/F/?func=login-session&bor_library=ABC50

    This will get the patron to a sign-on page. If you wanted them to be able to enter login and password on your home page and pass it to Aleph, you might want something like this:

    http://alephsvr.xxxxx.edu:8991/F/?func=login-session&login_source=LOGIN_BOR&bor_id=<their login>&bor_verification=<their PIN>&bor_library=ABC50

    In this second URL, you would replace the angle brackets and what's inside ("<their login>" and "<their PIN>") with the login and password that they enter in your web form, so it might end up looking like this for John Doe:

    http://alephsvr.xxxxx.edu:8991/F/?func=login-session&login_source=LOGIN_BOR&bor_id=jdoe&bor_verification=9876543210&bor_library=ABC50
