    "Update Inventory" adds portfolios instead of updating - why?

    • Product: Alma

     

    Question

    Testing an "Update Inventory" import profile in order to update portfolios - causes instead additional portfolios. Why doesn't the profile update the portfolios?

    Answer

    A new portfolio will be added in these conditions -

    - If the existing portfolio is a Standalone portfolio and the Update Inventory profile is configured with the option "Part of an electronic collection" (in the Inventory Information tab), the Update Inventory profile creates a new portfolio instead of updating the existing one.

    - If the existing portfolio is part of an electronic collection and the Update Inventory profile is configured with the option Standalone (in the Inventory Information tab), the Update Inventory profile creates a new portfolio instead of updating the existing one.
