Why do I get the Host Message "Import failed. Reason: NOT ADDED LOCKED" when exporting bib records to Alma?

Applies to
  • Connexion Client all versions

The message ‘NOT_ADDED_LOCKED’ is coming from Alma and is occurring for one of these reasons:

The exported record matched a single bib in the target zone, BUT that bib is being edited in the Alma metadata editor. To fix this try one of the following:

  1. If you previously searched the record and opened it in the metadata editor, go back to the metadata editor and release the record.
  2. If exporting to the network zone, search the record in Alma and view the record in the metadata editor. A locked record will report the institution that has the record locked and the time it was locked.

Alma will unlock records 60 minutes after the cataloger exits the metadata editor. However, if waiting longer than that amount of time, contact your Alma administrator.
