    CAT: default item type doesn't allow reset to blank to pull from SysAdmin

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 9

    Problem Symptoms:
    ? Once operator sets default Item Type in Cataloging preferences, it can no longer be reset to blank entry
    ? Default item type is then always pulled from Cataloging preferences instead of Cataloging happening location's settings in SysAdmin > Cataloging > Policy Definition > Locations tab

    Cause:
    This behavior is a result of Issue 16384-14322 / VYG-4506.

    Resolution:
    Issue VYG-4506 is resolved for Voyager 9.0.0 and higher.

    4. Default Item Type is now set in Preferences and cannot be unpopulated in order to pull from System Administration default settings instead.

    Workaround
    Reinstall Voyager clients or edit registry settings.
