Create Super Librarian by command line in koha LMS

Koha Super librarian

Sometimes Librarians forget the login credentials (User ID and Password) in the koha or the koha system has blocked the patrons account because of several unauthorized (wrong password) attempts to log in. In that case, we can create a new user account with the superuser/admin rights by the command lines.

Lets us know how to create a new Super Librarian account.

1. Activate environmental variables

sudo su

export PERL5LIB="/usr/share/koha/lib" 

export KOHA_CONF="/etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml"

2. Change the super librarian script directory 

cd /usr/share/koha/bin/devel/

3. Executive the following command to create a patron with the super librarian rights

./ --userid Librarian --password [email protected] --branchcode MAIN --categorycode STA --cardnumber 2000

In the above command following details have been used. you can change the details accordingly 

Patrons User ID- Librarian

Patrons Password- [email protected]

Library branchcode- MAIN

Patron categorycode- STA

Patron cardnumber-2000

NB:- Put the branchcode and patron categorycode carefully, These must be the same as you have created in your koha server.
