    VPDS returns incorrect patron expiration date

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.1.2

    Problem Symptoms:
    * VPDS returns patron's last modify date instead of expiration date in <expiry_date> tag

    Behavior caused by previously unreported defect in Voyager versions 8.1.0 through 8.1.2.

    Defect is fixed for Voyager 8.2.0 and higher

    Additional Information

    Replication steps:
    1. In Voyager Circulation, identify an active patron record and note the patron?s expiration date, as well as the last update date of the patron record.
    2. Make a request to vpds for the patron information. For example:<patron_last_name>&verification=<patron_institution_id>&institution_id=<institution>
    3. Review the xml that is returned. Note the last update date is returned in the <expiry_date> tag.

    Workaround: None.

    Other information: This does not appear to impact patron borrowing privileges ? active patrons are still allowed to make requests and complete other eligible activities.
