selfchk: items with holds not discharged
- Article Type: General
- Product: Voyager
- Product Version: 8.2.0
Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-11489
Server platform(s) affected: Solaris
Release(s) replicated in: 7.1.1-7.2.2
If the [Hold Request] stanza of the selfchk.cfg is set to Alert=Y and Discharge=Y, that requested items should be discharged.
Items with holds are not discharged if the [Browse] stanza has Alert=Y and Discharge=N, even if this stanza is after it in the selfchk.cfg
Workflow implications: Depending on the selfchk.cfg, hold items may not be discharged via SelfCheck.
1. Edit the selfchk.cfg file, so that the [Hold Request] and [Browse] stanzas are as follows.
and below it:
2. Discharge an item with a hold via SelfCheck.
3. selfchk returns a “There is an alert. Item is not discharged.” message and the item is not discharged.
Other information: SelfCheck should process the first alert and in the above case, it is Hold Request.
Workaround: Changing the Browse stanza to Alert=Y and Discharge=Y allows on hold items to be discharged.
Fixed in Selfchk for 8.2.0.
