    Configuring bX Recommendations for Primo VE

    Return to menu

    Before your institution can receive bX recommendations for articles in Primo VE, you must complete the registration process. For more information, see bX Registration Guide. After you perform the steps in the registration system, you will receive an e-mail message that contains the following keys:

    • The bX authentication token gives institutions access to the bX site to receive bX recommendations.

    • The bX license key gives you access to My Profile to update your bX registration information and settings. For more information, see Accessing My Profile.

    Processing your registration request and sending the e-mail with your bX authentication token and license key is handled within 24 hours.
