    DigiTool

    Primo links to DigiTool using the standard DigiTool link-to syntax. The DigiTool base URL is the server IP address and the DigiTool Web server port and Web client:
    http://<port>/webclient
    Add the base URL to digitool_base.
    Typically the following links are used:

    Link to Resource

    The GetIt! link is typically a link to the digital stream, for which the following URL is used:
    {{digitool_base}}/DeliveryManager?pid={{control/sourcerecordid}}&custom_att_2=simple_viewer
    For example:
    http://il-dtldev02:1801/webclient/DeliveryManager?pid= DTL02000000003000002}&custom_att_2=simple_viewer
    This template (digitool_linktorscr) is located in the default table of templates.

    Back Link to DigiTool

    From the full results page in the Front End, Primo displays a link to the same record in DigiTool. The following URL is used:
    {{digitool_base}}/MetadataManager?pid={{control/sourcerecordid}}&descriptive_only=true
    For example:
    http://il-dtldev02:1801/webclient/MetadataManager?pid= DTL02000000003000002&descriptive_only=true
    This template (digitool_backlink) is located in the default table of templates.

    Link to Thumbnail

    In the brief results in the Front End, Primo displays a thumbnail from DigiTool. The following URL is used:
    {{digitool_base}}/DeliveryManager?pid={{$$1}}
    The PID in the case of a thumbnail must be derived from the Relations section of the digital entity. It is added to $$1 of the thumbnail link in the PNX record.
    For example:
    http://il-dtldev02:1801/webclient/DeliveryManager?pid=DTL02000000003000001
