 ==== Profiles ==== ==== Profiles ====
-We have several profiles for ehost databases. The most important is "​EBSCOhost Web (ehost) - ehost" which covers all our EBSCOhost databases. ​There are other profiles ​which are named for individual databases but sometimes contain many more than that one resource"​CINAHL and CINAHL Complete ​(cinplus- ehost) has almost every ehost database turned ondespite the fact that we don't actually use the profile ​and CINAHL is managed in ehost. **Bob has said that this does not make sense to continue, although ​if we wanted to do discipline specific profiles ala Kat then it would. However, they are not being maintained and no one is using them** //Business Search, Cab Abstracts, Inspec Plus, MLA International,​ Business Book, and PsycInfo ​are getting hits, but not substantiallyUnsure where these URLs are actually being used...See EBSCO_DatabaseUsageReport from Oct. 2019 in the EDS Directory on DRMS. //+Many profiles exist in the Main User Group. ​We have several profiles for ehost databases. The most important is "​EBSCOhost Web (ehost) - ehost" which covers all our EBSCOhost databases. ​A cleanup was performed in Spring 2020 to remove deprecated ​profiles. Those that remain are in use in the Database A-ZAll profiles ​(in all siteswere migrated to HTTPs as of May 2020. Settings can be reviewed in the Auth. menu under HTTPS. 
 +  * EDS API, EIT: Webservice, and Z39.50 Client perform similar file transfer functions. 
 +  ​Search for Images remains. Collab. with RS to see if it is necessary. 
 +  ​New profiles should be created for FTF & PFUI once we go live. 
 +  ​Unclear if Flipster Mobile App is being used or if patrons ​are directed to Flipster ​but in a browser. 
 +  * ConsumerReports.org is non-configurable
  
-==== SFX Linking ====+The other three Groups have varying types of profiles. It is unclear what Remote was created for. UMAAH FTF Test should be removed after FTF and PFUI Go-Live and new test profiles should be created in Test. At that time, all profiles except for JGM1019 should be deleted, and new profiles should be created to reflect all live profiles. 
 + 
 +==== Branding ==== 
 +  * The branding tab for the main and individual EHost profiles should match EDS wherever possible. We use the traditional rather than enhanced branding so some options are not configurable. 
 +  * Advanced branding is handled through the [UMAAH] EHOST bottom branding document. It currently only includes the Favicon Icon but could be expanded to include more of the customizations we have made to EDS. 
 + 
 +==== SFX Linking ​(Deprecated) ​====
 The main method of linking after native linking is through the SFX UMLinks. The CustomLink "SFX Link Resolver (Main User Group) EHOST" is attached to the "​EBSCOhost Web (ehost) - ehost" profile in the Admin. It is joined by a specific CustomLink (SFX Link Resolver (GeoRef Only) UMAAH) for SFX linking through GeoRef. **Bob has stated that he sees no need for this CL to exist. Apparently it only searches GeoRef, but it doesn'​t display because of the rankings in ehost and the main SFX CL is working fine. ** The main method of linking after native linking is through the SFX UMLinks.

-These CLs cascade down to all EBSCOhost databases, regardless of if they have specific ​profile. For instance, CINAHL has a profile with no CustomLinks but still uses SFX linking. These CLs are set to "​Always Show," with the secondary setting to suppress the CL based on the "Hide if Full Text" toggle. The local collection "EDRS Exclude (umaah.edex)"​ is selected, but is being ignored since the CL is set to always show if there is no other full text. **Bob is unsure why the local collection would have ever been selected.**+These CLs cascade down to all EBSCOhost databases ​contained within ​a profile.
