    Linking to Kanopy Videos

    Kanopy is an on-demand streaming video service that allows institutions to provide access to a large collection of films and documentaries. During the activation of Kanopy, you must also configure the template that Primo uses to link users to the videos.
    To configure the linking template for Kanopy:
    1. On the Advanced Configuration page (Primo Home > Advanced Configuration), select All Mapping Tables to open the Mapping Tables page.
    2. Select Delivery from the Subsystem drop-down field and Templates from the Table Name drop-down field.
    3. Edit the Templates mapping table.
    4. If you haven't already customized the mapping table, click Customize.
    5. Search for the Kanopy template by entering Kanopy above the Code column.
    6. In the Template Code field, replace INSTITUTIONID with the client ID that you received from Kanopy.
