Current situation or problem
FOLIO provides some loans permissions (view loans, renew loans, change due date, check out, overrides, etc.) based on existing endpoints. There are two needed permissions for loans / checkin that do not have associated endpoints:
- Backdate check ins (as opposed to the current check in permission, which allows all users with that permission to backdate check ins)
- check in claimed returned items (as opposed to the current check in permission, which allows all users with that permission to check in claimed returned items)
Early on, there was a project decision that we needed to define a project-wide approach to action based permissions. However, that did not happen, and a further decision was made that individual features should be prioritized and proceed based on their app's individual needs. See the conversation on https://issues.folio.org/browse/UXPROD-1828
*Out of scope
- A library closes on Friday nights, and opens on Saturday morning. They want staff who return books on Saturday morning to backdate the returns to Friday evening to avoid inadvertent fines, but they don't want staff who don't work the Saturday shift to be able to do so.
- A library wants all items that are claim returned to be manually reviewed before being checked in by a specific staff member. Having the permission would allow staff to ensure that claim returned items are not inadvertently returned to the library.
