    "OAI Repository is not active for this Institution" error when Publishing, e.g. to RapidILL via OAI-PMH

    • Product: Alma


    After setting up publishing to, RapidILL or another publishing profile for OIA harvesting, and testing the link, e.g.

    see error:

    "OAI Repository is not active for this Institution".

    However, OAI Integration Profiles has been set up.


    The message arrives if the my IP is out of range for the OAI IP definitions. Try to remove limitations or adjust them.

    The steps are:

    1. Go to: Configuration > General > Integration Profiles
    2. Click on: OAI_DEFINITION
    3. Select the "Actions" (tab)
    4. Click the "Allowed IPs" button.

    Can you at least for now add just all IPs:

    Multiple libraries use this IP for the duration, or even after test phase.
