PBO vs. Alma in the Primo Display
Written by: Dawn Lowe-Wincentsen, Oregon Institute of Technology
The Primo interface brings in pieces from the Primo Back Office (PBO), Alma, and other places, for its look and feel. How do you know what comes from where? And where in Alma or Primo do you go to make those changes?
The following graphic shows PBO driven areas in outlined in purple, and Alma areas in green.
All pieces of the simple and advanced search screens are driven from the PBO. Each aspect can work in different ways though, such as a setting, HTML, CSS, or the more customizable options that include APIs, JQuery, and other languages. This is just an overview, and is not comprehensive.
