    parameters "OPEN" and "UPDATE" in sdi-01

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20


    According to documentation the batch service "Selective Dissemination of Information (sdi-01)" is defined in the job_list as follows:

    W1 23:30 Y XXX00 p_sdi_01 XXX00 OPEN
    W1 23:30 Y XXX00 p_sdi_01 XXX00 UPDATE

    What do the parameters "OPEN" and "UPDATE" mean?


    The parameters "OPEN" and "UPDATE" are not functional and were removed in a previous version. A correct line in the $alephe_tab/job_list would be:

    W1 23:30 Y XXX00 p_sdi_01 XXX00

    Additional Information

    The old parameters were still mentioned in the Aleph System Librarian Guide. This is to be corrected in the version 21 revision of this guide.
