    VoyagerILL/LFP/Login Authentication of hyphenated last names

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 7.0.3

    Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-16913
    Module(s): ILL Extended Services
    Server platform(s) affected: Solaris
    Browser & version (if applicable): IE, firefox

    Release(s) replicated in: Voyager 7.0.3

    Expected results:
    A patron should be able to login to the ILL extended services request form with a hyphenated last name.

    Actual results:
    A patron that has a hyphenated last name cannot login to the ILL Extended Services request form and instead has to enter the last name with a space.

    Workflow implications: Patron cannot login if they do not know to enter their last name with a space instead of a hyphen.

    Replication steps:
    1. From SFX select the ILL option that takes you to the ILL login page. (example URL: http://server:port/VoyagerILL/LFP/Login)
    2. Enter the last name and barcode for a patron that has a hyphenated last name.
    3. The patron will not be logged in.
    4. If the patron puts a space instead of the hyphen, they will be able to log in.

    Workaround: Use a space in place of the hyphen.
