    Cannot create a permalink from a Services Page in Primo

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4.6


    Why don't I see the option to create a Permalink from the "Actions" menu of an item on the Services Page?


    Permalinks can only be created for objects that actually exist in Primo. The Primo Services Page displays information that is sent to Primo from outside (Alma, Google Scholar), but while Primo interprets the information sent to it and translates it into a displayable format, it does not represent an actual item in Primo.

    The option to create permalinks for a Services Page is an enhancement request that is currently being reviewed by our Product Managers. If you would like to also submit an enhancement request for this feature, please follow these guidelines:

    We strongly recommend that you pursue this enhancement through the ELUNA Primo Product Working Group enhancement voting process. On a periodic basis the ELUNA Primo Product Working Group does an open call for enhancement suggestions that are voted on by the ELUNA Primo user community and presented to Ex Libris Development. This is the best way to have your enhancement request heard.

    If you are not an ELUNA member, we would encourage your institution to join because we have an active, knowledgeable user community that is an excellent resource for product knowledge, and experience in configuring the product to meet their specific needs.
