    Features

    Improved Sticky Facets Behavior (NERS #6125)

    May 2020 PRM-40512
    This enhancement improves the behavior of sticky facets by allowing users to apply persistence to all active filters in the Active Filters section. Previously, persistence had to be applied to each filter individually. In addition, this enhancement includes the following changes:

    • Instead of clearing only the non-persistent filters in the Active Filters section, the Reset Filters option in the Active Filters section now behaves like the Library Search button in the main menu, which clears all filters in the Active Filters section, including the persistent filters.

    • The new lk option will be added to the facet and mfacet parameters in a search's URL to mark the persistent filters. This allows you to reuse the URL later and retain the persistent filters in another search session. For example:

      https://MyUnv.alma.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?query=any,contains,test&tab=LibraryCatalog&search_scope=MyInstitution&vid=PRIMO_OAP_INST:Alma&mfacet=tlevel,include,online_resources,1,lk&mfacet=tlevel,exclude,available_p,1,lk

    As in previous releases, removing, modifying, and adding search terms in the search box will continue to retain only the filters that have been made persistent for that search session.

    To make all non-persistent filters persistent:
    1. Perform a search and filter your results by selecting one or more facets individually or in bulk. The non-persistent filters have the white background color. 

      PVE_ActiveFilters1.png

      Adding All Filters to the Persistence List
    2. Select the Remember all filters button to make all filters persistent. When made persistent, the system changes the background color of the filter to yellow.

      PVE_ActiveFilters2.png

      Adding Additional Filters to the Persistence List

      The system disables the Remember all filters button when all filters in the Active filters section are persistent.

    PRM-42350

    Configuration Options

    No configuration is necessary to enable this functionality. It is enabled by default.

    The following table lists the codes used to customize and translate the display labels and tooltips for this enhancement.

    Code Table Description

    Results Tile

    The following codes were added for this enhancement:

    • default.nui.facets.rememberFilters: Remember all filters

    • default.nui.facets.remember.tooltip: Make active filters persistent throughout the session

    • default.nui.facets.allLockedAlert.tooltip: All active filters are now locked for this session

    aria Labels

    The following code was added for this enhancement:

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFilters: Remember all filters

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFiltersDisabled: Remember all filters - Disabled

    • default.nui.aria.rememberFilters.enableControls: Unlock active filters or Select more filters below to enable the remember all button

    Simplify Data Reload Flow (NERS #6184)

    May 2020 PRM-41603
    Previously, the Delete Data Source and Reload pipe allowed you to harvest records that had been exported since the last time the records were harvested and loaded into Primo. With this enhancement, you can retain the same date for subsequent pipe executions so that you can automatically reload the same set of harvested records.

    Configuration Options

    The Use Static Date field has been added to the Define Pipe page for Regular and Delete Data Source and Reload pipes. When selected, the Start harvesting files/records from field retains the date on which the pipe was first run instead of automatically changing it to the date on which the pipe was last run.

    As with related records in View It, this enhancement allows you to enable/disable the display of related records for physical holdings (Get It) based on whether the item is a serial, a monograph, or a closely related item. In addition, the type of relation is now added to the end of the title, and you can specify whether the closely related items appear in the main list of locations or under the new Locations for Related Titles section.

For information on creating Google sitemap files, see Primo Generate Sitemap Tool.

    Configuration Options

    New SAML Certificate

    May 2020 PRM-39650
    The current DigiCert SAML Certificate will expire in January 2021. If your institution uses this certificate, Ex Libris recommends that you consult with the IT department at your institution, and if required, replace the certificate for Primo. If replacing the certificate, this must be done in coordination with your IDP. For more information, see Managing Certificates and Metadata for SAML Authentication.

    If your institution uses ADFS, Ex Libris highly recommends that you replace the certificate to avoid any complications.

    No immediate action is needed. Replacing the certificate can be done at any time until its expiration on January 1, 2021.

    Expose Webhook for Searching External Indexes

    February 2020 PRM-XXXXX
    Search Webhook (previously called Third Node) enables you to enhance the standard Primo search engine with your own search engine functionality, using the standard Primo services and view. This functionality allows sites to create multiple search webhooks, where each one is designed to work with a different external search engine (such as a regional search index). For more details on this functionality, see Search Webhook in the Ex Libris Developer Network.

    For information on how to add Search Webhooks to your view, see Enabling Search Webhooks in the Ex Libris Developer Network.

    Currently, you are not permitted to blend these webhooks with your local Primo data or any other webhooks.

    Support the Customization of the Improved Format of Saved Search Email Alerts

    February 2020 PRM-XXXXX
    The Saved Search Email Alert Customization mapping table has been added to the Front End subsystem to allow you to configure the color and other settings for the following components in Saved Search Email Alert messages:

    Component Color (should be set in Hex Code) Description
    Logo Background  #4d6b82 Defines the color used for the logo's background.
    Header Background #53738c Defines the color used for the header's background.
    Footer Background  #4d6b82 Defines the color used for the footer's background.
    Body Background #f3f3f3 Defines the color used for the body of the email's background.
    Main Title  #fff Defines the color used for the main title.
    Logo Show Allows you to Show/Hide your logo in the alert email.

    Unsubscribe  #fff Defines the color used for the Unsubscribe link.

    Support the Configuration of the Search Box's Focus

    February 2020 PRM-40880
    This enhancement allows you to place the focus in the search box by default when various pages (such as Library Search and Journal Search) are opened in the new UI. This allows users to type their queries directly into the search box without having to select the search box first. This is already the case for the classic UI.

    NUI_SetFocus_SearchBox.png

    Focus Set in Search Box

    Configuration Options

    To enable this functionality, add the focus_on_search_input parameter to the View Properties mapping table and set it to true. By default, this functionality is disabled.

    February 2020 PRM-42371

    Support Usage Information for the Order of Citation Styles

    February 2020 PRM-41694
    This enhancement enables Primo Analytics to track the number of times citation styles by position (a maximum of 20 styles) are selected using the Export to Citation action. This usage information allows you to determine which styles are used the most and to set the order of the styles accordingly.

    Primo_Mobile_ExportCitation.png

    Track Citation Usage by Position

    Analytics - Citation Style

    To support this functionality, the following actions have been added to the Action Usage subject area:

    Group Subgroup Action Description

    Document

    Citation Style 1, Citation Style 2, ..., and Citation Style 20

    The user selected the citation style at position 1 through 20.

    Support Local Fields in Alma CZ Records

    February 2020 URM-111389
    This enhancement adds support for the following local fields defined in Alma CZ records: 009, 09X, 59X, 69X, 77X, 78X, and 9XX. This allows users to search for and display information from these local display, facet, and search fields in Primo.

    In Alma, CZ records that contain a local field with subfield $$9 set to local are considered local to your institution, and any information stored in this field is not viewable by other institutions and is not overwritten when changes are made to the CZ record by the community. 

    For example:

    <datafield tag="993" ind1=" " ind2=" ">

    <subfield code="a">test_local</subfield>

    <subfield code="9">local</subfield>

    </datafield>

    Configuration Options

    To support these local fields in Primo, you must configure the following:

    1. Define a normalization rule for each local field that you want to support from CZ records.

      For example, if you want to display information from the local field defined above, create the following rule in your normalization rules set:

      NUI_LocalCZ_Field_NormRule.png

      Add Normalization Rule for Local Display Field
    2. Add the local fields to your Primo view. For example, add the local display field to the Details section on the Full Display page.

    This enhancement updates various PNX fields in the Esploro XML - Template normalization rules template to support the import of Esploro metadata into Primo. For more details on the template, see Esploro XML.

    Ongoing Analytics Improvements (February)

    February 2020 PRM-35632, PRM-42388

      NUI_UserAreaMenu_RefWorks.png

      Primo User Area Menu - New RefWorks Link

      • Update the default.eshelf.menu.refworks code in the User Tile code table to modify the link's display label.

      • Hide the link in the Primo User Area menu by setting the my-refworks-ctm class to display: none; in your custom CSS file.
