    3. In the Code column, type gale and press Enter.

    4. You will see the gale_linking  template.

    5. In the Template code column, replace <Service ID>  with primo and <Location ID>  as provided by Gale. The template will change from:

      http://link.galegroup.com/apps/doc/{{control/sourcerecordid}}/{{control/addsrcrecordid}}?sid=<Service ID>&u=<Location ID>
      

      to

      http://link.galegroup.com/apps/doc/{{control/sourcerecordid}}/{{control/addsrcrecordid}}?sid=primo&u=yyy_zzzz
      
    6. Save.

    7. Deploy.

    8. Test the linking of Gale in your Primo Front End.
