You can create digital representation label generation rules (see Configuring Representation Label Templates) in a Network Zone and distribute them to member institutions. Each member can then configure whether to use its own rule or the Network Zone's rule. When configured to do so, the Network Zone label generation rules are used by the member institution when auto-generating labels.
To manage label generation rules using a Network Zone:
- In the Network Zone, create a label generation template rule. For information, see Configuring Representation Label Templates.
- Open (Resource Management > Advanced Tools > Distribute Network Configuration) to run the Distribute Network Zone resource management changes to members job that distributes the label generation rules to member institutions.
- In the member institution, set the network_label_template_rules_precedence parameter to true to use the Network Zone's label generation rules instead of the locally defined rules (if any).
