Description

Works similarly to the ILLiad Caiasoft Server addon by sending circulation requests to CaiaSoft for offsite requests. In addition, this addon integrates with the DSP to provide fulfillment options for items that are available in Caiasoft and sends requests for those items if the
fulfillment option is selected.



Be sure to enable this addon for the desired pipelines.

There is also one custom queue that should be configured depending on the configuration of the addon. With the default settings, you'll want to create a custom queue called “Awaiting Offsite Delivery” in the Customization Manager.

Caiasoft will also require some additional data about your ILLiad configuration. You should generate a new API key in the ILLiad Web Platform Config table so that Caiasoft can update requests in ILLiad after the addon sends requests. The image below shows an example of the new WebPlatformConfig entry.
