    "Update Inventory" skips portfolios - why?

    • Product: Alma

     

    Question

    Testing an "Update Inventory" import profile in order to update portfolios - portfolios are skipped with the error "portfolios skipped (profile not allowing)". Why doesn't the profile update the portfolios?

    Answer

    There isn't a match between the portfolio type definition in the import profile, and the actual portfolios type. Update Inventory will show this error 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).
    - 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).
