    Primo VE Overview

    Primo VE is a new deployment model of Primo, which is aimed at simplifying Primo's back-end processes and further optimizing the management of Primo with Alma by utilizing the Alma platform.
    Primo VE, coupled with the new Primo UI, enables libraries to benefit from the following:
    • Unified back office management of Primo and Alma
    • Reduction of duplicate admin efforts and processes
    • Real-time discovery of records managed in Alma. Updates to records are indexed automatically and are discoverable in about 15 minutes.
    • Major operational improvements and the streamlining of publishing processes
    • Streamlined easy configuration and setup. Unless noted in the documentation, most configuration changes are automatic and appear immediately in Primo VE.
    • Intuitive and enhanced new Primo user experience
    The Primo VE documentation replaces much of the existing Primo administration guides since the back office administration is performed under the Discovery menus in Alma.
    Refer to the following sections if you are starting a new configuration:

    To configure discovery options (Configuration Menu > Discovery) for Primo VE, you must be assigned the following role: Discovery - Admin. Additional roles may be required to perform some Alma configuration.
