Known Issues


AppKnown issueWorkaroundJIRA issueProduct Owner
Settings > Inventory > Statistical codesHandle delete of statistical code associated with instance, holdings, or item in a properly manner. The approach we took for this issue MODINVSTOR-829 should be similar to what needs to be done for the other related issues, addressed in UXPROD-1889

UXPROD-1889 - Getting issue details... STATUS

RequestsWhen duplicating a request, the original pickup location selection is not preserved.Re-select the pickup location. 

UIREQ-751 - Getting issue details... STATUS

RequestsIn the Request details pane, the publication date may sometimes appear as "-", even though a publication date is listed in it's Inventory record. This happens when there is a character preceding the date, for example, c1905 or [1960]. Check the item or inventory record for the publication date. Correcting this has been added to a feature for future enhancements.

MARC authorityFirst deletion of a MARC authority record may be delayed but the record is deleted. No workaround

UIMARCAUTH-159 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Bulk editWhen triggering the bulk edit of item records by submitting a list of holdings HRIDs, the reported number of the updated records might be incorrect.No workaround

UIBULKED-122 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Bulk editOn larger data sets (~ 10 000 records) there is a significant delay on the screen showing the preview of proposed changes (Are you sure? form) Wait until the form is populated and the Download preview button works

MODBULKED-36 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Title Level RequestsRequests with the status Closed - pickup expired are causing queue positions to be absent from the queue. For example, if Request A was position 1, and it's status changes to Closed pickup expired, then Position 1 will be absent from the queue. This does not affect the functionality of the queue.No workaround


Title Level RequestsWhen placing a title level request and the Title look-up is used in the request form, the title information isn't loading consistently. Use the Instance ID, or search for the title again. It usually loads properly the second time. 


Stephanie Buck 
Title level requests
  1. Users are able to recall items with statuses they should not be able to (Aged to lost, Claimed returned, Declared lost)
  2. Users unable to recall items with status In process, In transit, On order when TLR is enabled
  3. Item level policies are not being upheld by title level requests (Even though an item is not requestable via item level request by the patron, it could be used to fill the title level request upon check in)
No known workaroundsCIRC-1683, CIRC-1684, CIRC-1693Stephanie Buck 
Item LimitsWhen a patron reaches the Loan Policy Item Limit at checkout, the error message that appears in the "Item not checked out" pop-up always indicates that the limit is "1", when it could be another number.  Item limits work, but the message is incorrect.Check the Loan Policy to see what the Item Limit is.

UIU-2652 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Holly Mistlebauer 
RequestsMorning Glory includes the implementation of shortcut keys for the request policy, but inadvertently left out adding the UI caret and shortcut key menu to the app. This will be fixed in a future release.Reference documentation for the shortcut key list as needed -

UIREQ-817 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Inventory/Single Record Import

When importing a Single record using the Import button in Inventory's action menu, then an instance is created. But if the user then use the 'back' button in the browser, a duplicate import of the same record is created

Do not use the 'back' button.

UIIN-2197 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Charlotte Whitt 
Circulation log

An item referred in the Circulation log is allowed to be deleted without any warning. But in the Circulation log, when clicking on the referred item (which is a link) then it throws an ugly error. 

New work has been identified: UXPROD-3738, and the architect has written up a technical spec document: UXPROD-3738 Circulation log update: deleted item records

For now accept the ugly error. This will be fixed when the work on UXPROD-3738 can be prioritized by the development team Vega. 

UXPROD-3738 - Getting issue details... STATUS

UsersInvalid date values can cause the user expiration timer to break and freeze the FOLIO tenant.

The Users app can allow saving of records with invalid dates, like a birthdate of 0000-00-01. The User UI context is fixed in the Nolana release; there are larger platform issues that also need to be resolved, being tracked in RMB-943.

If these dates are present, the user expiration timer will not be able to process that user record. The timer will continue to attempt to process the record and eventually the entire FOLIO tenant will freeze.

If you are upgrading an existing FOLIO tenant to Morning Glory, the recommendation is prior to migration to check for these existing date values and resolve them if they are present.

Suggestion from Index Data:

"You can find the user records in the database with a query something like this:

SELECT jsonb FROM diku_mod_users.users
WHERE jsonb->'personal'->>'dateOfBirth' !~ '^[0-9]{4}';

....You can also control the timer that was hanging up the system using the timer management API:

You could reset the interval to be very long and restart your mod-users instances (which releases all the hanging connections and allows Okapi to come back to life), then fix the records and set the timer back to its usual interval."

Finance, orders, invoices

When modules attempt to update transactions in finance app they may receive an error regarding a null version. Eg. 


    "errors": [


            "message": "{\n  \"errors\" : [ {\n    \"message\" : \"Conflict when updating a record in table transaction: Cannot update record e52816e8-c4c9-4648-b65d-XXXXXXXXX because it has been changed (optimistic locking): Stored _version is <NULL>, _version of request is 1\",\n    \"code\" : \"conflict\",\n    \"parameters\" : [ ]\n  } ],\n  \"total_records\" : 1\n}",

            "code": "genericError",

            "parameters": []



    "total_records": 1


Optimistic locking should remain disabled for the Morning Glory release.

Instructions regarding exactly what to disable can be found here under "Before Running" This was discovered while preparing a script to fix issued cause by past rollovers.
