    What is the key in short permalinks?


    Short permalinks take the following format:

    <Primo Domain>/permalink/<institution_code>/<key>/<record_ID>

    The key is a hash of the view, scope and tab parameters. The key may change depending on the view, scope, and tab that were used when the permalink was created.

    In Primo VE you have the possibility to create permalink

    a) after a search from the brief display of a record, clicking on the three dots icon that opens the Action menu
    and/or from the full display in the Send to section. In both case you will see the buttom Permalink;

    b) in My favourites also in this case clicking on the three dots icon and selecting Permalink.

    The keys:
    prm4k corresponds to a Permalink created from a Primo search, brief and/or full display
    7i6cbv corresponds to the Permalink created for a record in My favorites
