Description Barton Chittenden 2014-06-02 13:47:35 UTC
When logged in to OPAC as anonymous patron (as set in AnonymousPatron syspref), I can navigate to 'Your reading history' (... cgi-bin/koha/opac-readingrecord.pl) and see items that have been checked out.

Clicking on 'your privacy' (... cgi-bin/koha/opac-privacy.pl), then clicking on 'immediate deletion' and 'OK' results in the message 'Your reading history has been deleted.', But when I navigate back to the reading history page, items have not been deleted, even when I refresh the page.

I was able to delete the search history when logged in as the patron with borrowernumber 1.

User permissions are the same for borrowernumber 1 and the anonymous patron (borrower number 39969).

mysql> select * from user_permissions where borrowernumber='39969';                                                                                           
Empty set (0.00 sec)

Is this report specific to 3.14.x? If it is valid in master, please mark it as

Still valid.
But the behavior is the expected one: When you delete a checkout history you actually anonymise the checkout history :)

On bug 11009 we decided not to display the checkout history on the staff interface. Maybe we should do the same at the OPAC?
