    In which cases patrons are allowed to initiate the deletion of hold requests via OPAC / RESTful API?


    Patrons are allowed to delete all hold requests except records that have Z37-STATUS = "A" and Z37-PRINT-STATUS = "P".

    Additional Information

    In OPAC deletion of records on hold shelf (Z37-STATUS = "S") is only allowed when rep_change 2140 (Aleph 20) is installed and implemented.

    See implementation notes of rep_change 2140

    To activate the new functionality you have to activate the placeholders for the DELETE button in the following files:
