    How to place a Work Order for Items with Process Type "Missing"

    • Product: Alma



    An item has Process Status "Missing". Find the item > Request > Work Order, and get error: "No items available for the request due to policy."

    How to place a Work Order for a Missing item?


    The development team confirms: 

    Missing items are not requestable by default. Instead, add the Work Order from the Item Editor Process Type.

    It is possible to override this by customizing the parameter missing_item_requestable to true, but this will affect all types of requests and we assume it's not the desired outcome.
