    How to create local normalization rules in a Network Zone?

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: All




    After creating a normalization rule in an institution zone which belongs to a Network Zone, the rule is saved as a network zone rule and cannot be added as a process to metadata configuration profiles.




    Change the default setting for saving new rules and duplicate the previously created rule:


    1. Go to Alma >  Resource Management > Cataloging > Open Metadata editor  > Normalization Rules


    2. File > choose Options




    3. In the window choose the relevant location in "Placement of new rules" (local/network)



    4. Go to the rule which was saved in the Network zone, right click on it and choose "duplicate".


    A copy of the rule will be saved within the local rules and can be added as process to metadata configuration profiles.
