    Set Up RSS Feed for New Items

    • Product: Alma

    Question

    How do I set up an RSS feed for New Items?

    Answer

    1. Configure the rss_discovery_url under General Configuration > Other Settings
    2. Set up an RSS feed under Publishing Profiles in the Resource Management Configuration
    3. Schedule and run the RSS feed

    4. Make sure the set is for Physical Items.

     

    In addition to the files created as a result of the job, Alma generates a summary link for each RSS job as follows:

    http://server:port/rep/getFile?institution_code=[INST_CODE]&file=[RSS_FEED_NAME]&type=RSS
    

    RSS_FEED_Name is defined in the Publishing Profile Details in step 2 of the procedure

    Discovery users must set up the get file method to read the RSS file by specifying the type as RSS: Base_Url/rep/getFile?institution_code=<INST_CODE>&file=<File_Name>&type=rss
