    Locations Tab > linktoholdings Links Incorrectly to Primo URL

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4

    Problem Symptoms:
    The library uses OPAC via Link (OvL) in Primo.
    Clicking on the Brief Results > Locations tab, the first column on the left, should go to the Library's OPAC Locations list.
    It currently links to the Primo home search page.

    Different codes were used in the 2 locations required for configuring this link.
    It is critical to use exactly the same code in both configuration locations.
    In the Primo Back Office
    * Advanced Configuration > All Mapping Tables > Sub System = Delivery > Table = Template, the code name was "yourlib_unicorn_holdings"
    * Ongoing Configuration Wizards > Pipe Configuration Wizard > Normalization Rules configuration > Links > Link to Holdings rule, the constant was "$$Tyourlib_unicorn_linktoholdings"

    Step 1: Change the Template mapping table code to "yourlib_unicorn_linktoholdings"
    Step 2: Save and deploy the change

    Additional Information

    The standard linktoholdings template codes use different structure: linktoholdings, aleph_holdings, voyager_holdings, unicorn_holdings.
