    Problem Symptoms

    Ledger has "disappeared" from various access points in Acquisitions client


    Problem occurs when locations associated with the ledger(s) are not included in the Acquisitions Security Profile for the operator. If even one of the locations in the ledger is not in the Security Profile, the operator will not have access to the ledger(s) or any of its associated funds.


    To figure out which location is selected in Ledger, but not in user's Acquisitions Security Profile:

    1. System Administration > Security > Operator Profiles > New
    2. Create new operator (e.g. "Test" with operator id/password "test")
    3. Save
    4. System Administration > Security > Acquisitions/Serials Profiles > New
    5. Create new profile (e.g., "Test")
      1. Operator > move operator created in step 2 from Available to Selected column
      2. Locations > move all locations to Selected column
    6. Save.
    7. Acquisitions > log in with new test operator from step 2
    8. Acquisitions > Ledgers and Funds > Search Ledgers > [search for ledger in question]
    9. Open ledger > Locations > compare locations in ledger to locations in the Acquisitions/Serials Security Profile that cannot retrieve ledger
    10. Find location(s) selected in ledger, but not selected in operator's Acq/Serials Profile
    11. Move that location from Available to Selected in operator's Acq/Serials Profile

    Ledger should now be retrievable once operator starts new session in Acquisitions.
