    How to Change the Library and Database Names in Voyager WebVoyage OPAC

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 7.0.1

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Change the library / database name

    Procedure:
    Edit library/database name in 3 places:
    1. System Administration > Search > Database Definitions > LOCAL > Name:
    2. On server, /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/<skin>/webvoyage.properties
    a. "Connections" section > connect.db.LOCAL.name=
    b. "Connections" section > connect.db.groupN.LOCAL.name=
    NOTE: The best approach is to consistently name the local database in all these places.

    Additional Information

    How settings above display:
    1. Search and Titles List pages show value in connect.db.LOCAL.name
    UNLESS
    LOCAL is defined in a remote search group, at which point displays connect.db.groupN.LOCAL.name.
    2. Record detail page holdings jump bar ("Held at:") will display SysAdmin "Name" field for the LOCAL db
    UNLESS
    LOCAL db is defined in a remote search group, at which point it will display the first occurrence of the connect.db.groupN.LOCAL.name.
