    The Create XREF Tool

    This functionality is not relevant to to Primo VE.
    To enable the import of enrich-indexing content (such as the tables of contents, tags, and reviews) into Primo, the Create XREF tool builds the P_PNX_XREF table which maps PNX record IDs to one or more keys (such as ISBN and ISSN). For more information on importing enrichment content, refer to The Import PNX Extensions Tool.
    • You must be an installation-level staff user to create and execute this tool.
    • The P_PNX_XREF table can be updated by defining the cross-reference keys to the data source. In this case, the keys will be created when pipes are run. This is intended to create keys for new and updated records. For more information, see Configuring Data Sources.

    1. On the Tools Monitoring page, select Create XREF in the Create a Tool drop-down list.
