    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 Alma Configuration > Discovery > Publishing > Publishing Profiles
    3. Schedule and run the RSS feed. 2020-04-13_1544.png

     

    RSS Feeds can only be created for Physical Items sets.

    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
