Release notes

v1.6.1

This patch allows to create additional queues for bulk indexing to prevent the creation of huge amounts of workers when full reindexing resources.

v1.6.0

Production instances need to migrate data, as this release modifies the data model of several resources:

New options have been added to the CLI to allow to reindex a resource into another index, and the to switch from one index to the another. This prevents to interrupt the service during the reindexation process.

This release allow the user to sort the search result list alphabetically and by date (ascending and descending) for several type of records, on the public and professional interface. It also improves how the search handles queries with diacritics (#2396).

Notes can be added to the language field (#1867).

Two issues on the notification system are solved:

  • The availability was wrongfully sent to the owning library instead of the pickup library (#2373).
  • As overdue notifications are grouped, the reminder number in the e-mail subject can be misleading (#2390).

The anonymization of circulation transactions is modified to keep at least the last three months of operations, even if the patron doesn't keep the transaction history, in order to allow librarian to manage circulation (#2068).

The information displayed on the patron detailed view of the professional interface has been improved. In the patron brief view, the connexion to the circulation interface has been changed as a link instead of a button, thus allowing the librarian to open it in another window or tab.

The circulation history of the patron, as seen on the public and professional interface, displays correct data (#1227). Alongside, the total amount on the fee's tab of the public patron account is restored (#2319). The ILL requests are also correctly displayed (#1902).

Creating a template on the base of an existing record resulted in errors, due to the links to other records (#2385). From now, all the links inside templates are handled.

The comprehensive changes are to be found in the changelog. The changelogs of the other components of RERO ILS contains also relevant changes:

v1.5.1

This patch fixes several issues:

  • Corrects the collection (seminar/courses) URL (#2337).
  • Speeds the rendering of several professional interface pages (#2259).
  • Restore the facets behaviour, without the limit to ten items.
  • Fixes the computation of due date (#2198).
  • Corrects the URL for Renouvaud catalogue on the frontpages used in production.

v1.5.0

This is the first release since the 🚀 go-live, as we published several patches (from v1.4.0 to v1.4.11). The main feature of this new version is the displaying of all the fields of the document, both on the public and professional interface. Patrons will finally see all the bibliographic metadata carefully filled in by librarians.

Alongside, some improvements and issue fixing take part of this version, such as:

  • Clearing the input field of the circulation interface quicker, before the transaction is closed, thus allowing the librarian to go on (#2244).
  • Removing default value of optional fields in the cataloguing editor, because in some case it forced the librarian to clean manually unused field (#2080 and #2310).
  • Preventing the deletion of a document if it is a parent record of other documents (#2414).

The comprehensive changes are to be found in the changelog. The changelogs of the other components of RERO ILS contains also relevant changes:

v1.4.11

This patch improves the Angular application integration (ie the professional interface), which has an impact on the editor performance.

The comprehensive changes are available in the changelog.

v1.4.10

This patch improves significantly the editors of RERO ILS, especially the document editor which loads much faster now (#1747). Linking document to other resource is easier too, as the scope of the search is wider (#2352) and the results more detailed.

Other fixes have been added to the patch.

The comprehensive changes are available in the changelog.

v1.4.9

This patch brings several improvements and fixes on the notification process:

  • Preventing to repeatedly send notifications that are in an error state.
  • Preventing notifications to be in an error state if the pickup location is deleted.
  • Cancelling generated notifications if the situation changed between the generation and the processing. Indeed, some notifications are asynchronous in order to be able to group several notifications of the same type to the same patron. But in the meantime, the notification may be outdated, because the loan has been renewed or checked in.
  • Preventing to send reminders if the library is closed between the due date and the notification processing (#2303).
  • Computing the date at which the due soon notification has to be sent when creating the loan, instead of through a recurring task, in order to improve performance and apply a more stable date.
  • Processing due soon and overdue notifications as soon as possible, to prevent sending them after the loan is either renewed or checked in.

Other fixes have been added to the patch.

The comprehensive changes are available in the changelog.

v1.4.8

This patch improves the mechanism of error login for the selfcheck machines and notifications process to improve the diagnostic of issues and its resolution. Other issues on notification are also resolved:

  • Improvement of readability of the groupes notifications (#2247).
  • Availability notification sent to the wrong recipient (#2300).
  • The link to the patron account should redirect to a login page if the user is not authentified (#2282).
  • The library name is displayed in the notifications instead of the pickup library name when the location is not a pickup location anymore, or not available.

Other issues are solved on the SRU queries and on the display of items on the document detailed view.

Finally, the support of loan listing, even if linked items or documents are deleted, is supported.

The comprehensive changes are available in the changelog.

v1.4.7

This note includes the changes of the rero-ils-ui project [link]. It fixes various issues:

  • #2168 Apparently connected to someone else session
  • #2207 Request list: the wrong pick-up name is displayed
  • #2213 Corporate bodies with subdivision are displayed with quotes and square brackets
  • #2224 Issues become “late” one day too early
  • #2234 Requests for patrons by librarians are impossible with librarian accounts of a specific library
  • #2235 The request date is modified when an action is done on the loan
  • #2248 Selfcheck: fix patron informations
  • #2253 The cancel button of the delete dialog on a detail view returns to an empty document
  • #2257 Some added local fields not displayed in the professional interface
  • #2262 Wrong pick-up location name in the booking notification
  • #2269 A template created from an existing record can’t be used
  • #2212 Wrong default value of subject.source and genreForm.source

Other improvements (professional interface)

  • Dynamic loading for items informations: when displaying the document detail view, the items are now loaded only if the user expand a holdings
  • Fixes the document brief view for small screen: on small screen the thumbnail is now displayed next to the metadata and is yet maximised to prevent pixelisation
  • #1720 Delete a holdings with items should be possible
  • #1921 Adapt the field list in quick access in the document editor
  • #2214 Remove validation on field copyrightDate
  • Detailed view of persons and corporate bodies: removes the link on the RERO identifier, removes the space between documents on the list

Several bug fixes have been added to this patch. Find the comprehensive changes in the changelog.

v1.4.6

This patch mainly fixes notification issues signaled on the production server:

  • Some notifications aren't sent to the patron when he or she has no primary e-mail, but e-mail as the communication channel. This is often the case with children that have the parent e-mail in the additional e-mail address field (#2152).
  • In the notifications that should be sent to the patron by mail, the address block was missing (#2188).
  • In the booking notification, the patron information that were displayed were the ones of the patron that is checking in the item, instead of the patron that is requesting it (#2197).
  • Request notifications on item that have a temporary circulation category with a negative availability should not be sent (#2191).

Several bug fixes have been added to this patch. Find the comprehensive changes in the changelog.

v1.4.5

This patch is a fix for the precedent one (v1.4.4, below), that broke the display of items on the document detailed view. In the same move, some improvements have been added to the document detailed view of the professional and public interface:

  • Collapses the holdings by default, except when there's only one item in it (#2133).
  • Loads at least 10 holdings, as they are now collapsed. Then loads holdings 10 by 10 (#2134).

Several bug fixes have been added to this patch. Find the comprehensive changes in the changelog.

v1.4.4

The main purpose of this patch is to improve overall performances by optimizing the facet computation, which consume lots of CPU resources as the production server of RERO ILS has lots of documents with lots of fields:

  • Fixes the extra API request on the public search page (#1970), that alone improves the performance by 2.
  • Prevents to compute facets on the search suggestion queries, as they aren't used at all.
  • Computes only the expanded facet on the public search (document type) and computes the other facets only if the user expands it.
  • Prevents to launch an empty search for lists such as users or documents in the professional interface, as the user will always type a specific query, thus spare CPU resources for bette use.

Several bug fixes have been added to this patch. Find the comprehensive changes in the changelog.

v1.4.3

This patch resolves several issues on notifications, spotted on the production server:

  • Request notification is sent to the pickup location instead of the owning library; furthermore, when a recall notification has already been sent, no request should be sent (#2152).
  • Sometimes booking notifications are not sent (also #2152).

The fourth case listed in the #2152 issue will be fixed in a future patch.

Some improvements have been done on the selfcheck machine module.

v1.4.2

This note includes the changes of the rero-ils-ui project [link] .

This patch occurs after the 🚀 go-live 🚀. It resolves the most urgent issues signaled by librarians.

It improves the interface for validating requests that is too slow with lots of requests, thus preventing librarian to fulfill them.

Several issues on notifications spotted on the production server are also fixed:

  • The URL in the notification is wrong (#2151).
  • The to pick up until date in the availability notification is not displayed (#2140).
  • Due soon and recall notification e-mail has not object (#2139).

Deletion of an item type attributed to items is prevented (#2159).

v1.4.1

This note includes the changes of the rero-ils-ui project [link] .

This patch is necessary to fix three issues:

  • Allows to create users without preset PID from the CLI, that is needed for the selfcheck machine users.
  • Adapts the homepage of one of our partner.
  • Prevents the document input search to remove the organisation filter (issue #2130).
  • Restores the message in the trashbin tooltip that inform the user why an item cannot be deleted.

v1.4.0

This note includes the changes of the rero-ils-ui project [link] .

This release mainly fixes issues and adds enhancements to prepare the 🚀 go-live that is scheduled for the 12th of July 2021 🚀. A new feature allows a system administrator to fetch the usage statistics of a live instance 📊 . The comprehensive changes are available in the changelog.

v0.12.0

This release note includes the changes of the rero-ils-ui project [link].

User interface

  • Replaces the legacy authors by contribution field in the search results view (brief view), detailed view and the loan transaction history of the public and professional interface. In the same move, the search input in the document editor, that allows to link a document to an authority record, is adapted to the new field (see below, in the metadata section).

Public interface

  • Adds a tab for the fees in the patron account view.
  • Updates the entry menu link to the help page, to be consistent with the structure of the help section (help/public).

Professional interface

    • Fixes the renewal badge to prevent it to be displayed when an item that has been renewed is checked in.
    • Replaces the pickup location name by the item’s library name of the item details.
    • Adds an alert message to inform the librarian of the destination of a checked in item that goes in transit.

  • Document editor:
    • Updates the document detailed view to display the new_acquisition field (see below, in the metadata section, the description of the new acquisition functionality).
    • Fills the document editor with the data of a record imported through an external client using the REST API. As the librarian saves the record, the _draft boolean field is set to false to allow its validation (see below, in the API section).

Search

  • Adapts the author facet to the new contribution field of the metadata model.
  • Fixes the total result count of the public search interface of an organisation view that is broken by the new contribution field implementation.

Circulation

  • Fixes automatic item assignment on pending loans, preventing a checked-in item to be assigned to all pending loans of its document, by adding the assign_item parameter to all ITEM_RETURNED transitions. Fixes inveniosoftware/invenio-circulation#127.
  • Uses datetime to manage start and end date fields of the loans in rero-ils, since invenio-circulation v1.0.0a21 uses date format.
  • Implements circulation actions, after an effort to extensively model all circulation use cases, for library network complex workflows:
    • add_requests actions. Fixes issues when multiple requests are allowed for the same patron on the same item, and when loans with state ITEM_IN_TRANSIT_TO_HOUSE were blocking new requests.
    • checkin actions.
    • validate request actions. Fixes the issue when a manual validation of a request validates all requests on the same items.
    • extend actions. Fixes an issue that allowed extension of a checked out item even if pending loans (requests) were associated to it.
    • cancel_request actions.
    • change_pickup_location actions.
  • Adds a LoanState class to better handle loan states.
  • Creates a item_record_to_a_specific_loan_state method to change the item record status.

  • Fixes issues raising when placing several requests simultaneously (invenio-circulation v1.0.0a26).
  • Extends circulation fixtures to reflect improvements in the circulation module.
  • Allows an item having loans attached in CREATED state to be deleted. Such loans have no impact on circulation, as they are the result of interrupted circulation actions.
  • Fixes an issue preventing an item to be checked out if two pending loans (requests) are attached to it.
  • Allows circulation actions to be linked either to a transaction location or to a transaction library.
  • Renames the validate API call to validate_request.
  • Fixes an issue occurring when multiple requests are being validated simultaneously.
  • Adds missing parameters to the renew button in the patron profile of the public interface.

  • Adds item destination library name and code, and item destination location name and code to the loan dump to improve the circulation interface accuracy.
  • Fixes an issue that prevents the pickup location of a request of ITEM_IN_TRANSIT_TO_PICKUP loans to be changed.
  • Fixes an issue that prevents ITEM_IN_TRANSIT_TO_HOUSE loan to be checked out to a patron that does not own that loan.
  • Rewrites the loan permission factory and adds a specific class for invenio-circulation resource. Simplifies the search_factory method. Fixes an error in the loan search_factory method when the user has both patron and librarian roles.
  • Implements the patron information in the invenio-sip2 module, allowing patrons to access their information through the selfcheck machine: checked out items, requests, overdues, fees…

Metadata

  • Improves marc2json and validate CLI commands to work properly with JSON references.
  • Moves a field of the document JSON schema that was badly situated after the splitting of the schema, from rero_ils/jsonschemas/common/languages.v0.0.1.json to rero_ils/modules/documents/jsonschemas/documents/document_series-v0.0.1.json.
  • Implements the new contribution field (that replaces of the authors field).
  • Replaces, in the document JSON schema, the labels of the agent roles by their code (ie, the content of the value key), in order to avoid translating the code and the label.
  • Adds a functionality in the Reports & monitoring section that allows a professional to export an item inventory list to a CSV file. Before the creation of the export file, items can be filtered by library, location, item type and item status. The search itself retrieves items based on all their fields, such as the barcode or call number. That points to the list presented as a search result on RERO ILS.
  • Improves marc21tojson transformations with a better identification of empty values, and their replacement with default values.
  • Allows (temporarily) to attach a serial holdings or a standard holdings to a document of journal type or periodical issuance type. This is necessary for migrating all the legacy system records to RERO ILS.

Acquisition

  • Updates the document and item JSON schemas for the new acquisition list management. These lists are generated through an ES query that filters the newly acquired items with a specific time span. This allows a librarian to define a permalink to be shared through the library website (or elsewhere), that points to a RERO ILS search result presenting the list.
  • Adds a search input in the order line editor to find a specific document and to save the librarian the burden of typing the full REST API document URL.

API

  • Adds marcxml support to the document API, thus allowing an authenticated user to post marcxml records using an external script. The record is added to the database with the _draft flag set to true, to disable the validation of the data and to avoid the record to be found in the catalog.

Permission

  • Adds the document_importer role to users posting records (documents) through the REST API. A new CLI command creates a personal OAuth token for authentication.
  • Adds a method to return a record class from a given pid_type. This method is available globally.

Tests

  • Adds fixture data for end to end (e2e) tests with Cypress.
  • Splits commands.js file into multiple files to improve its readability and adds circulation custom commands to it.
  • Tests the creation of a simple document (required fields only).
  • Adds HTML id="" or name="" attributes in public and professional interfaces to ease the writing of the Cypress tests.
  • Fixes the item status of newly created items by copying an existing item through a function, with the existing status. This function, obviously, is only used for circulation unit tests, not for the regular item creation.
  • Adapts existing circulation unit tests to the new circulation actions.
  • Extends circulation unit tests to cover all circulation actions.
  • Adds circulation unit tests to cover all circulation scenarios.

Scripts

  • Adds a script, called russian_dolls to package ng-core, include it in rero-ils-ui, and then package rero-ils-ui and include it in rero-ils, to ease some development processes.

Instance

  • Upgrades python dependencies after upgrading invenio-circulation: removes constraints on marshmallow, adds ciso8601, fixes isort errors.
  • Fixes python imports after upgrading isort to v5.
  • Fixes autoflake errors, signaling unused python imports.
  • Upgrades ngx-formly (the library that generates the editors, based on the JSON schemas) to 5.9.1.

Fixed issues

  • #797: The renewal badges appears in the circulation interface when a renewed item is checked in.
  • #927: As a librarian, I cannot request (the request button is not displayed) an item that do not belongs to my library.
  • #1030: In the document detailed view of the professional interface, the contributors that aren’t a link to an authority record (MEF link), but only a plain string, aren’t displayed.
  • #1085: Item search by barcode is not filtered by organisation, resulting in possible circulation actions in the wrong organisation.
  • #1137: The patron account view, in the public interface, crashes when an item of the loan transaction history is deleted.
  • #1158: A missing configuration prevented the Celery scheduler to locate the task_clear_and_renew_subscriptions method.
  • #1160: Checking out an item ready at desk to the patron that requested it is impossible. The error is “This item is requested by another patron”.

v0.10.1

The f01ceffe and 38c982c1 commits for the Import from BnF functionality are missing in the v0.10.0 release. This patch fix this oversight.

v0.10.0

User interface

Public interface

  • Keeps the active tab on the document or person detailed view on page reloads.

Professional interface

  • Renders the language menu with the same look as in the public interface:
    • Uses the same icons.
    • Removes the current language.
    • Avoids to translate the language menu.
    • Adds a divider to separate the language menu from the help link.
  • Takes the entire screen width. This is useful for the improvement of the editor.
  • Improves the document editor:
    • Sets a max width for selects and inputs.
    • Sets bold font weight for titles.
    • Hides fields with unique value (as bf:Place).
    • Displays fields inline and makes this configurable through a HTML class in the JSON schema.
    • Adds HTML class in the JSON schema to fix max width and title font size.
  • Implements interface components to import bibliographic records from external sources through the web (SRU protocol). The librarian searches in a regular search interface for the desired record, using a simple query (keywords for the author, title, date, IDs…), selects a record, gets a preview in two formats (the RERO ILS JSON rendered in HTML, and MARC). Once the desired record is identified, through an Import button, the record is loaded into the document editor to be modified and then added to the catalog. At this stage, only the BnF SRU service is implemented.
  • Fixes the redirection to the parent document after the deletion of an item. This behaviour has been generalized to every parent/child resource relationship through a modification in the routing configuration.
  • Allows to receive a serial issue through the professional interface (see the acquisition section, below). The workflow begins on the holding detailed view and then continues on a dedicated view for serial issues. The Quick receipt automatically receive a regular issue and create the corresponding item.
  • Improves the transaction data displayed on the item detailed view, depending on the transaction type (checkout or request), to avoid displaying an empty pickup location name when this data is not relevant.

Circulation

  • Adapts the patron profile URL in notification messages to the active RERO ILS instance.
  • Adds a CLI for notifications to start the notification process with invenio run notifications process.

Metadata

  • Adds a translation mechanism for the resource editor (documents, items…). The translated schemas keys in the rero-ils project are served through an API endpoint to the rero-ils-ui project, in order to avoid translating them twice.
  • Holding record, serial pattern:
    • Adds a field to describe the publication frequency of a serial pattern. The librarian has to pick from a fixed list of 15 frequencies, which correspond to the standard RDA list.
    • Adds an expected_date_for_first_issue field to indicate the expected date of the first issue to be received.
    • Sets the next_expected_date field as required for regular frequencies.
    • Adapts the item JSON schema to display fields conditionally.
  • Adds type field in the item record, to distinguish between standard item and serial issue. If the item is of type issue, then the issue field is required, to describe the issuance details and issue status. Issue items can only be attached to holdings of serial type. The field item_type that indicates the circulation category will be removed later. The item circulation status is described in the item.status field, while the issue status is described in the item.issue.status.
  • Adds notes field in the item JSON schema. Four types of notes have been added, two regarding their audience (public or staff) and two regarding a circulation operation (checkin/checkout). The notes are displayed according to their type: public notes are publicly displayed on the document detail view of the public interface, staff notes are displayed on the same view but in the professional interface, checkin notes are displayed as a permanent alert as the item is checked in, and checkout notes are displayed as a circulation transaction occurs.
  • Uses JSONSCHEMAS_REPLACE_REFS = True to resolve JSON reference before serving the schema.
  • Removes the document-minimal-v0.0.1.json schema, as it is not used.

Acquisition

  • Receive an issue:
    • Allows the librarian to receive new issues through the holdings detailed view. The system, based on the holdings pattern, computes the next issue pattern and expected date. The librarian is able to add irregular or exceptional issues.
    • Updates automatically the next_expected_date after a successful receipt of a regular issue (expected_date of the receipt issue plus the pattern frequency).

API

  • Corrects the process used when starting a delayed bulk indexing (switch from invenio-indexer to IlsRecordindexer).
  • Uses the standard JSON schema end point (/schemas).
  • Restricts the receipt of issue to librarians of the holdings record's library.
  • The pattern preview API returns the issue_display_text (based on the preview template) and the expected_date.
  • The holding API is able to receive the next regular issue.

Documentation

  • Documents all circulation actions, trying to be the most comprehensive in the context of a library network with complex internal circulation workflows. Actions, scenarios and chart can be found in `/doc/README.md#circulation <https://github.com/rero/rero-ils/blob/dev/doc/README.md#circulation>`__. In the same move, the babel configuration has been cleaned.
  • Removes unnecessary documentation in the LICENSE file.
  • Fixes the AUTHORS.rst file (wrong indentation).
  • Improves the github issue templates to automatically add various labels to the issue, depending on the type of issue (bug, correction, enhancement, etc.). This should also ease the process of issue creation and triage.
  • Creates an API to expose which roles can be managed by the current logged user. Introduces a restriction to prevent the current user to delete itself.

Translation

  • Fixes a wrong rule in the babel configuration that prevented strings to be extracted from the document JSON schema.

Instance

  • Upgrades assets utilities (clean-css, node-sass…)
  • Fixes version number in the pyproject.toml file.
  • Uses enabled state of tasks already saved in REDIS.
  • Integrates invenio-sip2 module, that can be installed with a new option for the bootstrap script.
  • The module rero-ils-ui uses the ng-core library in version v0.5.0.

Scripts

  • Fixes server script to make use of the correct scheduler back end and prevents rero_ils.schedulers.RedisScheduler file creation.

Fixed issues

  • #802: In the notification sent to the patron, the patron profile URL isn’t adapted to the running RERO ILS instance URL.
  • #821: The switch library menu of the professional interface should be better positioned. The menu itself should directly inform the librarian of which library is selected. Furthermore, the switch library menu should be displayed on every page of the professional interface, not only on the home page. When another library is selected, the page is reloaded with the new context, implying a possible data loss.
  • #822: The switch library menu of the professional interface is not dynamically populated after the creation of a new library.
  • #930: A librarian could edit librarian records of other libraries and manage system librarian roles.
  • #943: Selecting another interface language in the professional interface wasn’t changing the language of the editor.
  • #1033: Restarting the scheduler disables entries.
  • #1036: notes field prevents to save document record.
  • #1038: The person selector in the document editor doesn’t display the birth and death dates of the person correctly.

Known issues

There are some critical issues on the editor, that are known and are going to be fixed by one of the next sprints (July 2020 or August 2020):

  • #906: saving a document with edition responsibility is not possible.
  • #1003: multiple provision activity are lost when editing a document.
  • #1035: the navigation helper (jump to) is not always functioning.

v0.9.1

This patch is needed because #1013 is missing in v0.9.0, resulting in many user interface elements that are missing.

Documentation

  • Updates the chart of links between RERO ILS resources.
  • Replace circulation chart with a new chart using dot from graphviz.
  • Adds a markdown file with all circulation actions explained.
  • Adds a markdown file with scenarios based on these actions.
  • Enriches the mention of contributing libraries with UNamur and U.Saint-Louis Brussels (README.rst).

Translations

  • Fixes a bug with the translation API that prevented exception to be logged.
  • Returns the source string instead of an empty string when the translation is missing.

Instance

  • Improves the nginx logs to prevents the OPTIONS requests to be logged to get cleaner logs in deployed instances.

Issues

  • `#890`__: Displays the realized actions in the circulation interface to the past participle, so that the librarian knows the actions are actually done.

v0.9.0

This release note includes the release note of rero-ils-ui version v0.2.0.

User interface

  • Improves the document detailed views (public and professional) with tabs: a “get” tab with the holdings and information on items, a “description” tab with extended document metadata and, in the professional view, an “online” tab when the resource is available through an hyperlink. On top of these tabs are displayed the main metadata of the document with the cover thumbnail.

Public interface

  • Removes the item detailed public view which is useless, all relevant information being on the public document detailed view.

Professional interface

  • Updates the library custom editor to normalize buttons according to the charter. Also, when a day is set to closed, the opening hours are hidden in addition to being disabled.

Search

  • Moves from the ES query string, which is powerful but should not be used for public search input, to ES simple query, much simpler but much more resilient to syntax errors in the query. It also allowed to set the default boolean operator to AND, which is what librarians and patrons expect. The API requests are still done through the ES query string, as complex queries are needed to populate the user interface. A new HTTP query optional parameter is added to identify the simple query: &simple=1.
  • Sets the same AND boolean operator instead of OR when selecting multiple items in the same facet, thus reducing the scope of the filter instead of expanding it.
  • Improves the ES mapping to enhance the search quality.
  • Adds a RERO ILS custom analyzer as the default analyzer.
  • Improves language analyzer with unicode capabilities (oe, œ, ue, ü, etc.). Uses a new ES docker image with icu plugins for these functionalities.

Circulation

  • Checks that there is only one pickup location per library.
  • Processes notifications asynchronously, which is more scalable and reliable.
  • Implements paging request to closed stack functionality, needed and developed by UCLouvain. It allows to restrict, for a specific location, the available pickup locations, or even to disable the request option for the whole location. It also allows to set a manager for these paging requests, who receives printable email notifications for each request.
    • Updates the location detailed view with new paging request fields.
    • Updates the location brief view to identify the closed stacks. Adds tooltip message when the location can’t be deleted. Updates the buttons style according to the charter.
    • Adapts the “request item” selector to display only the available pickup locations.
  • Normalizes the action buttons of the user interface according to the charter.

Data

  • Updates the item JSON schema in order to remove the requirement on the call number. The item barcode is still required, but can be left empty by the librarian and be automatically set by the system. These changes are needed to an upcoming functionality, receive an issue, in which the librarian should be able to add an item without having to assign a barcode and a call number to it.
  • Creates a separate table for each resource in the database. Import and export of a resource are easier and access to records faster in big datasets.
  • Updates JSON schema to draft 7.
  • Adds methods to ensure PIDs are unique.
  • Improves JSON schema and ES mapping of the patron transaction event.
  • Implements physical description in the new data model: extent, duration, format, illustrations, colors and physical details.
  • Fixes creation, merging and deletion of holdings records for ebooks, during harvesting.
  • Links documents to person authority records through IdRef, GND or RERO ID instead of a MEF record ID. The MEF clustered record is still used to provide multilingual capabilities, but the source authority IDs are much more stable.
  • Updates the document editor to propose person authorities from the IdRef and GND records in the MEF server.

User management

  • Adds manual blocking of patrons by the librarian. Blocked patrons can’t check out or place requests on documents, and are informed of the blocking in their profile. Librarian are also informed of the blocking when displaying the patron profile or when trying to place circulation transactions that are not possible due to the blocking.

API

  • Splits the item class into two classes, the api.record:ItemRecord to manage the item record, the api.circulation:ItemCirculation to manage item circulation transactions.
  • Adds a new API URL to check, when creating or updating a patron, if the email does not already exist. A validation message is displayed in the editor.
  • Exposes PO based translations in JSON through a new API HTTP endpoint to the angular application (rero-ils-ui), to avoid translating the same strings in both projects. On the rero-ils-ui side, the translation mechanism is updated to consume the exposed JSON file translations.
  • Adds create to the permission API and removes permissions from the SearchSerializer.
  • Improves the way rero-ils-ui gets permissions, through the permission API instead of a search query.

Documentation

  • Adds an informative README.rst, addressed to the general public and developers, explaining the context of the project, what it does and is going to do, where to find documentation on how to develop, install or contribute to RERO ILS.
  • Updates the rero-ils-ui issue template in order to remind users to privilege issue creation in the rero-ils GitHub repository.

Tests

  • Fixes another dependency issue, this time with jsonresolver.
  • Fixes pytest-invenio version 1.2.2 breaking tests, because it downgrades pytest-flask and Flask. pytest-invenio is pinned to 1.2.1.
  • Fixes unit tests for item barcode automatically generated (prefixed with “f-”), to ensure that the time stamp of the generated barcode equals the sysdate time stamp.
  • Tests the ES simple query with provided search use case in different languages.
  • Installs, configures and adds first Cypress test for end to end (e2e) tests.

rero-ils-ui

  • Rewrites MainTitleService as a pipe to ease its use in components.
  • Fixes the test component name to be coherent with component name.
  • Rewrites tests to limit imports and declarations.
  • Fixes private attribute names that were missing the leading underscore.

Instance

  • Moves from pipenv to poetry to improve dependency management. Uses python-dotenv to load .env and .flaskenv files. This allowed to upgrade werkzeug which resulted in an issue fixed with the item view and the tests.
  • Removes a bad hack with appnope package for Mac OSX.
  • Removes setuptools manifest which is not used anymore.
  • Configures celery to load .env and .flaskenv files.
  • Adds invenio-logging Sentry extensions.
  • Removes pipenv environment variables from the setup script.
  • Fixes an error when interrupting the server script, resulting in processes still running, after the move from pipenv to poetry.
  • Improves the handling of scheduled tasks with the use of REDIS scheduler back end, allowing to enable, disable, update, create scheduled tasks dynamically.

Issues

  • #91: The facets behaviour was not as expected. It associated two items with an OR instead of an AND operator.
  • #675: A question was raised on how to improve the library custom editor, specifically the opening hours section. It was decided to hide the opening hours for closed days.
  • #755: The search failed with a query containing brackets [].
  • #819: The population of items in editor selectors was very slow.
  • #850: Creation of two records with the same PID is possible.
  • #884: Removes the public item detailed view as it is not useful anymore.
  • #890: Actions realised in circulation should be in past participle, not in the infinitive form.
  • #932: Librarians were able to edit item types and patron types, but these actions should be reserved to system librarians.
  • #934: Searching for patrons in a large data set should rely on a good ranking, in order to get an exact match on the top of the results page.
  • #1000: A test on the document API was not raising exceptions, resulting in a failed test.

    • Clean old subscriptions.
    • Create new subscriptions for patrons linked to a patron type with a subscription but that are missing the subscription fee.
  • Displays an alert to the patron, in the patron profile for pending subscription.

Metadata and data

  • Improves harvesting of ebooks metadata from external commercial platform, avoiding to stop the harvesting when it encounters faulty data.

  • #787: As a generalization of issue #575, access to resources editor had to be protected based on the user permissions.
  • #793: In some cases, the patron displayed in the checkin interface wasn’t correct. To solved this, better information had to be returned after the checkin.
  • #794: The pickup_name field of a location that is pickup wasn’t required, thus resulting in incomplete records when creating or updating a location through the editor.
  • #798: The professional item detailed view didn’t display information on why an item isn’t available in some cases.
