Description Barton Chittenden 2016-05-19 14:00:09 UTC
Koha documentation says:


    Superlibrarians will see modifications for any branch, other staff will
    only see modifications for patrons who belong to their logged in branch.


However non-superlibrarian staff *can* see patron modification requests from other branches.

To replicate:

1/ In opac, create a self registration request at branch A.
2/ Log in to staff client as non-superlibrarian staff member with 'modify patron' permissions, at branch B.
3/ Note that 'Patrons requesting modifications' on Staff Client Home page will show a request.
4/ Click on 'Patrons requesting modifications'. You will see the request from step 1/.

Hi Barton,
See bug 10904, did you check the perf IndependentBranchesPatronModifications?
Comment 2 Christopher Brannon 2016-05-26 15:33:54 UTC
I have confirmed that this setting was the culprit.  I believe Barton submitted this ticket on our behalf.  We did not know about the setting.  I am going to go ahead and mark this as resolved.
