    parameter shortened due date notifications cannot be changed

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version:
    • Relevant for Installation Type:



    When trying to change the parameter shortened_due_date_notifications (in Fulfillment Configuration Menu > Other Settings), an error message "Unable to update mapping table" is displayed.


    The available options are EMAIL, MESSAGE and MESSAGE_EMAIL.


    These values must be entered in upper case. Entering them in lower case will result in the above error message.


    Note that the original documentation showed these values in lower case, leading to confusion.


    For a description of the values, see the Alma June 2016 release notes.
