    sip2: patrons with fines are allowed to borrow materials

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

    Problem Symptoms:
    The sip2_server allows patrons with fines to borrow materials even though the patron's cash total exceeds the z305_cash_limit.

    (Note: the z305_cash_limit can be seen in the GUI Circ Patron - Local Patron values.)

    Cause:
    Entry missing from tab_check_circ.

    Resolution:
    The blocking of loans due to excessive fines is performed by the following tab_check_circ checks:

    ! 5 : check patron cash limit
    ! checks whether the patron has exceeded the amount allowed
    ! in z305_cash_limit - uses O(pen) and T(ransferred) transactions
    ! 5_b: check patron cash limit
    ! checks whether the patron has exceeded the amount allowed
    ! in z305_cash_limit - uses only O(pen) transactions and not T(ransferred)

    Add the following to each xxx50 tab_check_circ:
    SIP-AUTH check_circ_5_b
