    Cannot "Add ID", Button Disabled

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Description:
    Why is the "Add ID" button grayed out, disabling it, in the Patron record, [T] Additional IDs node?
    Also, nothing displays in the Additional IDs top right pane -- neither the 00 id qnor the 01 id are showing there even though they can be viewed via the Global Patron Information node.

    Resolution:
    tab100 : USER-IDS-PERMISSION was set to 1, but there were no Z305 records yet (local patron information).
    Changing it to 0 enables the Add ID button for now.
    Evaluate the expected workflow and library setup to select the correct setting for this variable in the long term.

    tab100
    USER-IDS-PERMISSION
    0 = No Check - Can view/update user IDS
    1 = Can view/update user IDS only if the user has ADM or other Z305 records (an ALEPH level record is not sufficient)
    2 = Can view/update user IDS only if the user has Z305 records other than the ADM level record.
    4 = Can view/update user IDS only if there is a Z305 record for the user that matches the operator's sublibrary/library permission . This option is relevant for installations that share a common Z305 table, permission is allowed because the user has registered at the library.
