    Can't update z305_booking_permission with X server bor-update or through p_file_20


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    We are trying to set up automated patron updates from one of our libraries' Registrar system through the xserver bor-update. Using the user XSERACADIA. Sending the xml below through the xserver, the requested updates are done, except for the booking-permission for the ACAD z305 record. Running this same XML through file_20 also does not update the permission. No errors are given through either interface. 



    In regard to the file-20 xml format, the b_file_20_merge_z305 program does not look at the incoming z305-xxxxx-permission fields.  And the sequential format does not include any xxxxx-permission fields. 

    This is a workaround:

       1. Create a new patron status for the status 01 patrons who you want to have the z305_booking_permission Y. 

       2. Change the z305_bor_status of the records in the input file which have z305_booking_permission Y, to the status created in step 1. (The program will detect the change in status and load the values for this sublibrary/status from tab31.) 

    Or use SQL to update the z305_booking_permission to Y for the patrons who should have it.
