Connexion NOT_ADDED_BRIEF When overlaying a Connexion record on an Alma record, Alma may return the error "NOT_ADDED_BRIEF"

Connexion integration is setup so that incoming records that Alma considers a lower brief record will not be accepted.

This decision is based off the records brief level found in LDR/17

If you believe this is a mistake, then update the brief level in the connexion record before importing. Otherwise find a record with a higher brief.
