Why doesn't my provider customer ID appear in the URLs after updating it within the collection settings?


Even though your customer ID (given to you by your provider) is entered correctly in the collection settings, it does not appear in the URLs of outgoing record links. The links as a result don't work.

  • WorldCat Knowledge Base
