    p_file_20, XML format: does z303_rec_key need to be included?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version:  20, 21, 22, 23

     

    Description:
    In the Z303 section of the documentation on the XML style for input files to the plif loader it states that the Z303_ID field is mandatory. Is this the Z303_REC_KEY? We already have to include the match ID, why would we have to include this?

    If this is the Z303_REC_KEY, when we are inserting a new patron we normally let the system generate this number. Does this mean we have to generate the number ourselves?

    Resolution:
    The "How To Use the Patron Interface Loader" document is incorrect in including a value for the z303_rec_key in its example. Of course, you can not know this value. The z303_rec_key should be empty, like this:

    <z303-id></z303-id>
