    Creating a Permalink for a Record

    The Permalink action in the Actions drop-down list (which was previously named Send to) in the search results and the e-Shelf allows end users to copy simplified deep links to individual records in their search results and e-Shelf.
    Permalink Action in Actions Drop-Down List
    This action opens the Permalink dialog box, which displays a simplified static URL to the record. The user may select the URL and then copy and paste it to wherever it is needed.
    Permalink URL
    The system uses the following simplified format to create the permalink, which is based on the deep link to the record’s full view:
    http://<Primo server+port>/<View ID>:<Search Scope Name>:<PNX record ID>
