    Can Alma migration create items only from Voyager 'items' and ignore all ‘issues’?


    Currently there's no option to ignore all 'issues', but some Voyager issues will not be migrated.
    The below are 3 types of issues that will be skipped:
    1. Issue is collapsed in Voyager (ISSUES_RECEIVED.COLLAPSED=Y)
    2. Issue is suppressed in Voyager OPAC (ISSUES_RECEIVED.OPAC_SUPPRESSED = 0)
    AND the answer to the question “Migrate suppressed issues?” in the Migration Form is "No"
    3. Issue is not received (SERIAL_ISSUES.RECEIVED = 0)

    Additional Information

    This is only for Voyager to Alma migration
    Please always check the Voyager to Alma Migration Guide (section: Alma Structure / Issues Creation) from Ex Libris Documentation Center for the most recent update.
