    Linking to Thomson Reuters (Westlaw)

    • Product: Primo Central


    How do I activate WestlawUK (Thomson Reuters) resources in Primo Central?


    WestlawUK resources have been released in Primo Central. However, the WestlawUK resources require an institution specific parameter to be filled in, in your Primo Template Mapping Table.

    The template for WestlawUK will be added to your Primo Mapping table as part of an upcoming Primo release.

    You can enable access to the resources prior to the template release by following the steps below to create the template locally.

    -->Important: If you create it locally, your template and the inserted parameters will not be deleted with the release.

    First, please search for the template in the mapping table to see if it was already created there as part of the release.

    To do this:
    1. Go to  Primo Back Office > Advanced > Mapping Tables > Templates.

    2. Customize Table.

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

    4. If you find the  WestlawUK_linking  template then proceed to customize the existing template.Westlaw linking.JPG

    5. In the Template code column, replace Pro-1  with your  customerID as you received it from Thomson Reuters. 

    --> If the template is not yet in the table, you can proceed to create it locally.

    To create the WestlawUK template locally:

    1.     Scroll down to Create a New Mapping Row.

    2.     Create new row mapping with the following parameters:

    3.     Click on Create.

    4.     Save.

    5.     Deploy.

    6.     Test the linking of WestlawUK in your Primo Front End.
