    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4

    Desired Outcome / Goal

    In Primo, when a user clicks on the 'View Online' tab, SFX links directly to the full text resource. When the user clicks on the 'More' tab, the SFX Menu is provided.

    Procedure


    In SFX
    1. Log into SFX Admin
    2. Go to Setup & Administration > Menu Configuration > DirectLink
    3. Turn on DirectLink
    4. Add getFulltext to service types for which DirectLink should be allowed
    5. Click the submit button located at the bottom right of the page

    In Primo
    6. Log into Primo Back Office
    7. Go to Advanced Configuration > Mapping Tables
    8. Edit the Templates mapping table
    9. Ensure that 'Update for Owner' is set to the correct institution
    10. Edit the openurl_article template code by adding '&disable_directlink=true&sfx.directlink=off' to the end of the string. The end result will be:
     

    {{sfx_base}}?ctx_ver=Z39.88-2004&ctx_enc=info:ofi/enc:UTF-8&ctx_tim={{timestamp}}&url_ver=Z39.88-2004&url_ctx_fmt=infofi/fmt:kev:mtx:ctx&rfr_id=info:sid/primo.exlibrisgroup.com:primo3-Article-{{control/sourceid}}&rft_val_fmt=info:ofi/fmt:kev:mtx:{{addata/format}}&rft.genre={{addata/genre}}&rft.atitle={{addata/atitle}}&rft.jtitle={{addata/jtitle}}&rft.btitle={{addata/btitle}}&rft.aulast={{addata/aulast}}&rft.auinit={{addata/auinit}}&rft.auinit1={{addata/auinit1}}&rft.auinitm={{addata/auinitm}}&rft.ausuffix={{addata/ausuffix}}&rft.au={{addata/au}}&rft.aucorp={{addata/aucorp}}&rft.date={{addata/date}}&rft.volume={{addata/volume}}&rft.issue={{addata/issue}}&rft.part={{addata/part}}&rft.quarter={{addata/quarter}}&rft.ssn={{addata/ssn}}&rft.spage={{addata/spage}}&rft.epage={{addata/epage}}&rft.pages={{addata/pages}}&rft.artnum={{addata/artnum}}&rft.issn={{addata/issn}}&rft.eissn={{addata/eissn}}&rft.isbn={{addata/isbn}}&rft.sici={{addata/sici}}&rft.coden={{addata/coden}}&rft_id=info:doi/{{addata/doi}}&rft.object_id={{addata/objectid}}&rft_dat=<{{control/sourceid}}>{{control/sourcerecordid}}</{{control/sourceid}}><grp_id>{{facets/frbrgroupid}}</grp_id><oa>{{adddata/oa}}</oa>&rft.eisbn={{addata/eisbn}}&rft_id=info:oai/{{addata/lad21}}&disable_directlink=true&sfx.directlink=off
