Gateway export to Koha ILS causes Connexion client crash

  • When Gateway export a record to Koha ILS, Connexion client crashes and has to be restarted.
Applies to
  • Connexion - all versions

There is something about the Koha host name that is causing the client crash.  To resolve the issue, create a new Gateway export destination.  Once the existing export destination is damaged, it can't be reused.

Instead of the host name, use the IP of the Koha server.  A ping of the server shows this: ' [PING.IP.GOES.HERE]'.

Do the following:

  1. Delete the existing Gateway export destination (it's damaged and won't work, even with an IP).
  2. Create a new Gateway export destination.  In the host name box enter PING.IP.GOES.HERE (obtained from pinging the server).
  3. Enter all other information the same as before; port, login name and password.

OK out of the dialogs and try exporting a record.  It should be successful.
