Purchase Requests API
A Purchase Request API is needed. This would allow the library to seamlessly integrate with internal systems.
From Francois Renaville: "We asked for this in May 2016 and were told in July 2016 (case 00222634 - API for Purchase Requests?) 'that API for purchase requests is on the Alma road map for 2017. Currently, there is no release date.' No news since then."
François Renaville commented
Good news. I can see in the latest Alma Roadmap Highlights 2018-2019 https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Alma/Product_Materials/Overview_Materials/Roadmap that:
- End users in Primo will be able to create purchase requests for inventory for new bibliographic records (slide 42 - planned for H1 2018)
- There will be a Purchase Request API (slide 85 - planned for H2 2018 - 2019)
