The Patron Portal encompasses the set of functionalities through which Patrons interact with the Folio system. Patrons do not directly log-in to the Folio User Interface and as such there is no UX associated with the Patron Portal The Patron Portal consists of a set of APIs that allow the users to perform actions such as: placing a hold on an item; paying overdue fines; etc.. The Patron does not interact with the APIs directly but rather through user interfaces that integrated to those APIs: e.g. an OPAC or Discovery system.
The Patron portal would also be used to implement some of the functionality required by GDPR: such as correcting a user record.
