    Dummy Heading in Staff Privileges; pw_library not in Access Rights


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


    Problem Symptoms:
    Staff Privileges Box
    * There are no permitted libraries in the staff privileges box
    * There is only one header and it says "Dummy Heading" even though the pc_tab_col.eng has the proper headings of "User Name" and "Permitted libraries"

    Access Rights-Select Library
    * There is only Aleph and the BIN's
    * There is no PWD50
    * Clicking on "Aleph" gets the response: "The library code you have entered is incorrect or not allowed for you".


    * The label "Dummy Heading" is used when the program finds no lines of the necessary column heading type in the pc_tab_col.eng.
    * The PWD50 path_convert file is empty.
    * There is no PAS line for PWD50 in the library_relation table.


    1. Run "echo $pw_library" on the server to show the pw_library (in this example, it is PWD50)

    2. Add these lines added to the PWD50 path_convert file:
    $pwd50_dev/pwd50/form_eng $xxx01_dev/xxx01/form_eng
    $pwd50_dev/pwd50/tab/pc_tab_col $xxx01_dev/xxx01/tab/pc_tab_col

    (in this example, "xxx01" is the library used for pc_tab_col, usually the BIB library)

    3. Add PWD50 to the library_relation table > PAS line. (Note: The first value in the PAS line needs to be the ADM library. This library is also the z66_user_library.)
