koha-auth - Generate authorities from bibliographic records
With this script, it's possible to extract authorities from Koha bibliographic records, load them into the authorities table, and link authorities to biblios.
Creates a text file authorities.txt containing authorities extracted from Koha biblio records using auth.conf authorities configuration.
Load authorities from authorities.txt into Koha using auth.conf authorities configuration. With --truncate, auth_head Koha table is truncated before loading new authorities. After this processing, authorities have to be indexed with Zebra in order to be searchable. Without --doit, the file processing is done but authorities are not effectively loaded into Koha DB.
Link biblio records fields with authorities via $9 subfield. Authorities must have been indexed with Zebra. After this processing, it is necessary to index bibliographic records with Zebra. Without --doit, the processing is done, but biblio records are not modified. This way you can check that authority heading matching works properly.
Authorities configuration file looks like that:
--- authcode: NP authletters: abcd authtag: 200 bibliotags: - 700 - 701 - 702 --- authcode: CO authletters: abcd authtag: 210 bibliotags: - 710 - 711 - 712 ---
Two sample configuration files are provided with this distribution and can be found in the dist local directory: auth-marc21.conf and auth-unimarc.conf.
