    Repository Import profile> Single Portfolio takes the portfolio information from the first 856

    • Product: Alma



    Is it possible to select a preferred 856 URL field, in a Single Portfolio repository import profile? 


    In the Repository Import profile, if you select 'Multiple Portfolios' in the Inventory Information tab, the Import will create a portfolio for each 856 in the BIB record.

    When selecting 'Single Portfolio', the first 856 in the input file will be selected to create the URL. Other 856 will remain in the bibliographic record.

    More so, the Development team advises that the 'skip' option (for "Extract access URL from field/subfield") is only relevant when the radio button is set to 'Multiple'.
