    Howdy,

    What’s the best way to request a feature-enhancement on the ALMA API?

    Our organization has given our patrons the ability to submit bulk (line-item) full/partial-payments on individual fines & fees.

    When processing these transactions, we must send individual line-item transactions to the API which results in individual payment-receipt emails being sent to the patron.

    /almaws/v1/users/{user_id}/fees/{fee_id}

    Conversely, the API’s pay-all function sends out a single payment-receipt email with a summary of the fully-paid line-items.

    /almaws/v1/users/{user_id}/fees/all

    We would like a function which can transact an array of line-item payments and generate a single payment-receipt email like that of the /fees/all function.

    Something like:

    /almaws/v1/users/{user_id}/fees/partial

    Parameter:
    fees (array) [{fee_id, amount}…]

    Thank you,
    -Fitz

    Hi,
    Please try submitting your suggestion at https://ideas.exlibrisgroup.com/forums/308173-alma
    Your explanation here is clear, so I guess you can simply copy-paste.
    I hope it will work out for you,

    Hi,

    It is a great idea. Does Ex Libris have any plan to implement this in the future?
