Docline Automatic Update

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

As of ILLiad v9.1.2 & 9.0.4, ILLiad can now automatically update the Docline scripts as new versions become available. To enable this functionality, there are two Customization Keys that need to be configured first. To ensure ILLiad knows where to update the scripts, they are now being installed in a new default location C:\ProgramData\ILLiad\Docline\. If your library uses custom field translations (and DoclineAutoUpdateFieldTranslations is set to No), ILLiad will copy the field translation files present in C:\Program Files (x86)\ILLiad\Docline\ over to the new Docline script location when upgrading. The ILLiad Client 9.1.2 installer grants the 'Modify' permission to the new default Docline folder for the 'Users' group to ensure any ILLiad staff user can update the scripts. The Client installer should handle this by default; if this setting isn't correct users may see a message indicating that ILLiad was denied permission when trying to update the Docline scripts. 
 
To enable this functionality, you will need to set the DoclineAutoUpdateEnabled and DoclineAutoUpdateFieldTranslations Customization Keys to yes. These keys are added during the 9.1.2 server update; however, they do not exist in 9.0.x installs by default; a New Record should be added to the table in the Customization Manager under System | General | Customization page
 
If your ILLiad installation is a shared server, you will need to repeat this process for each NVTGC, updating the NVTGC field in each custkey as appropriate.
