How to Update a Linking Parser Parameter

  • Product: Alma

 

Question

How do I update a Linking Parser Parameter? 

Answer

If the content vendor requires a Customer_ID, accountID, CLIENTID, Authentication or another type of parameter to be included in the link for their resource you can manage this in the Electronic Service's Linking Tab. Updating this at the service level allows for links for all underlying portfolios to have the same updates applied. 

  1. Perform an Electronic collection search for the collectionclipboard_ecc275bc72a4121a50ba35fbc43db152d.png

Please note that the Available Parser Parameters will vary significantly based on the requirements of the content providers. You may also expect to see options like these additional examples:
