Bug Report for Issue # 17247
Other Modules that are affected or might have an affect:sysadminsvr, webvoyage.cgi, circsvr
Release(s): replicated and reported in 2001.2 (do not have a UC/UB db in Support on Unicode)
Server Platform(s) affected: Solaris (ALL)
In the UC via SysAdmin you identify a database as being eligible for UB with a radio button on the
Database Definition page. This allows it to be part of the Random Selection process when placing
a UB Request. If a Library is closed or not available for UB, I have gone in and unclicked the radio
button for that Library to take it out of the Random Selection process.
After running setting the UC (the LOCAL db) as a ub_db for the UB Request Form, we now see any
database attached (via MFHD) to a record in the UC that has been defined in its Local database as
UB eligible is being "randomly" selected for UB - even though the Database Definition for that database
in the UC is not designated for UB.
Can place UB Requests on items for db's that are not UB eligible.
Testing in excalibur
On the ucdb (set as ucat and ub in global_parm)
ub_db=Y in voyager_databases for LOCAL
TurnOffLibraryDropDown=N in opac.ini
Item (Title=Ducky) at RSCC, DMADB, gwcc
gwcc not marked as UB db in voyager databases
Logged into UC using Voycoldb barcode (bc=ub, LN=borrower)
Library auto selected was Mayer (dmadb).
When clicked on Library dropdown (to select a different library to place the request on), able to
select and place a UB request for gwcc (even though not checked as a ub db)
Information on "Random Selection" From page 10-3 of the 1.2 UB doc:
"Question: When the UB Request form displays, the Library drop-down may
include one or more libraries (see Figure 10-4). How is that list populated?
Figure 10-4. Library and Copy fields on UB Request form in WebVoy?ge
Answer: It depends on whether or not you have the lock down option activated in
[UB_Page] stanza of the opac.ini file. If you have the lock-down variable
set to No, the system randomly selects a library from all the libraries which
own a copy of the item.
The randomly-selected library displays first on the list followed alphabetically by any other libraries
which owns a copy of the item."
