    Configuring Repository Search in Leganto

    Configuring Search Repository

    You can configure the repository in which Leganto users search for citations to be Alma or Primo. You will need the Primo View ID from your Primo system administrator. If you configure that searches are in Primo, you can restrict the searches to a specific scope or allow users to search in any scope.
    To configure Leganto users to search in Primo:
    1. On the Leganto Custom Settings page (Fulfillment > Fulfillment Configuration > Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Leganto > Customer Settings), set primo_vid to the Primo View ID.
    2. Configure primo_search_scopes and primo_default_search_scope as follows:
      • If primo_search_scopes is false and primo_default_search_scope is false or not set, searches (for both instructors and librarians) are in Alma.
      • If primo_search_scopes is true and primo_default_search_scope is false or not set, a dropdown for primo search scopes appears, with the alphabetically first scope in the list pre-selected. Searches are in the selected scope. The Alma scope does not appear in the dropdown for instructors, but does appear for librarians.
      • If primo_search_scopes is false and primo_default_search_scope is set to a primo search scope, searches (for both instructors and librarians) are in the configured default scope.
      • If primo_search_scopes is true and primo_default_search_scope is set to a primo search scope, a dropdown for primo search scopes appears, with the configured default scope pre-selected. Searches are in the selected scope. The Alma scope does not appear in the dropdown for instructors, but does appear for librarians.
    3. When you are done, click Save.
    Note that IP ranges for Leganto access must also be configured in Primo. See the following page in the developer network for more information: https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/leganto/integrations/primo. To see the mapping between Primo PNX field and Leganto citation elements, see Appendix A: Field Mapping from Primo PNX to Leganto Citations.
    New for August! To enable Leganto users to include results without full text in Primo Central search results, set the parameter primo_include_non_fulltext_option to default_true or default_false. When set to either value, a checkbox to enable results without full text appears in Leganto when a Primo Central search scope is selected. If you entered the value default_true, the checkbox is selected by default.

    Configuring Repository Locate Workflow

    To configure whether a citation's information is overridden by any conflicting repository information after Alma finds a match in the repository, configure the customer parameter override_bib_on_locate (true/false) (Fulfillment > Fulfillment Configuration > Configuration Menu > Fulfillment > Leganto > Customer Settings). When set to true, Alma overrides the information in the citation with the information in the repository after a match is found.
