Welcome to the November Developer Community Newsletter.

Automatic Profile Completion

If you have ever wanted to enforce that a user’s name and email was consistent across the University campus, then this is for you.

Your authentication system can now release attributes that tell Talis Aspire Reading Lists the first name, surname and Email address of a user, which will be updated from your IDP on every login. You can also tell us what ‘job role’ that user has and we’ll use that value on account creation to help distinguish between staff and student roles for reporting purposes.

For full information on how this works and what you need to do to get it setup, please see this article on our support site.

Any changes?

As always, if you have any upcoming changes planned to any of your library systems which may impact on Talis Aspire – particularly if these are changes to your Library Systems or Identity Provider – please get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can discuss whether any work may need to take place within Talis Aspire to ensure continued uptime during the transition. To get in touch with us please create a support ticket.
