    Why are requests in OPAC not blocked by global delinquencies?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Problem Symptoms:
    * A patron with a global delinquency is able to place a hold request in OPAC. This action should be blocked by a global delinquency
    * table ./xxx50/tab/tab_delinq.lng contains blanks in col. 4
    * table ./xxx50/tab/tab_check_circ has check 1_a to check for global delinquencies in all instances

    Functionality not available in Aleph 20

    * In Aleph 20 it is not possible to check for global delinquencies when creating requests in OPAC
    * In Aleph 21 the check check_hold_request_1_a (for global delinquencies) in table ./xxx50/tab/tab_hold_request was added

    Additional Information

    * see Aleph 21 rep_ver #017743
    Description: New check hold routines are introduced. It will be possible to configure these checks in tab/tab_hold_request of the ADM library, as pre/post/circ checks according to the library.s policy. The new check routines includes: Blocks checks (1_a,1_b,1_e), Overdue checks (1_d,9_a,9_b,10_a,10_b), Cash limit checks (5,5_b) and Loan limit checks (4_a,4_b,4_c,4_d).

    * Extract from header of table ./xxx50/tab/tab_hold_request
    ! 1_a : checks patron global blocks. Error 6041 PRE, POST, CIRC
    ! message include block codes and description
    ! from tab_delinq.lng table
