    SFX button on OPAC Holdings page, Items list doesn't work with FMT = BK

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    It was my understanding that the SFX button on the Items page of the OPAC was unconditional, but it seems Aleph only provides it under certain circumstances. What are the conditions that Aleph requires in order to display the SFX button on the OPAC Holdings page Items list?

    More specifically, the SFX button is not being provided for items with Format = BK, even though I have nothing in tab_sfx_denied.

    The SFX button appears for an item in the "Holdings" list in the Web OPAC, only if Z30-MATERIAL begins with "ISS" (usually "ISSUE or ISSBD"). This is in addition to the check of the "tab_sfx_denied" table.

    From v16 rep_ver 7139:

    Description: Removing license-check for SFX from the holdings-page. SFX button can be available now from the holdings-page for items of material-type starting with "ISS" (like ISSUE, ISSBD etc).
