    Base URL Configuration

    Product: Alma


    Description

    In order for a third party to display the Alma Services page, a base URL needs to be configured.

    Resolution

    For Primo, use the following format:
    https://<Primo_domain>/primo-explore/openurl?institution=<Primo_institution_code>&vid=<Primo_view_code>

    Where:

    • Primo_domain – Specify the Primo Front End server and port. In the case of multiple FE servers, use the server that serves as the load balancer.

    • Primo_institution_code – Specify the institution code used in Primo.

    • Primo_view_code – Specify the code of your Primo view.

    For example:
    https://primo2.prod.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com:1701/primo-explore/openurl?institution=01MY_INST&vid=01MY_VIEW

    For Primo VE, use the following format:
    https://<Primo_domain>/discovery/openurl?institution=<Alma_institution_code>&vid=<view_code>&

    Where:

    • Primo_domain – Specify the domain for your Primo server.

    • Alma_institution_code – Specify the institution code defined in Alma.

    • view_code – Specify the code that is defined for your view on the View Configuration page. For example: 01MY_INST:MyView.

    For example:
    https://mylibrary.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/openurl?institution=01MY_INST&vid=01MY_INST:VIEW1&

    If your vendors do not support the above format, which includes a question mark (?) before the parameters, use the following format:

    https://<Primo_domain>/openurl/<Alma_institution_code>/<view_code>?

    For example:

    https://mylibrary.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/openurl/01MY_INST/01MY_INST:VIEW1?

    Additional Information

    Please refer to the relevant Alma-Primo integration or Primo VE documentation.
