  1. Recalculate fixity SHA2 and insert into Rosetta

    We have around 22,000,000 files that we would like to recalculate a new fixity hash, but this time it would be SHA256. We need a good way of getting this fixity back into Rosetta. We would like to store it along with the SHA1 value we previously generated. We are aware that the SHA1 fixity is located in xml clob data in the hdemetadata table. We are wondering if there is another location for this SHA1 value in another table.

    • Search for "unknown" extensions

      It is currently not possible to search for files with extensions that are not recorded in the Format Library, such as .md or .cxml, because they are not included in the autocomplete list. So there is no way to build sets of files with such “unknown” extensions. According to Ex Libris, there is an open issue on this subject: DPS-16975. I would like to suggest that increased attention be given to this issue and that a solution be planned for one of the upcoming releases.

      • Support the ability for Rosetta to request IEs in batches

        We would like Rosetta to work more efficiently when the storage layer is tape based, particularly for exports. Could Rosetta request IEs in batches from the storage layer. when exporting large collections from tape a file is retrieved from tape one at a time.

        • Bitstream information in Bitstreams Tab

          Researchers often use zip or tar files in order to upload large amounts of research data in various formats. Bytestream extraction is a useful tool for analyzing the content of these container files. The resulting bitstream information is written in the METS and displayed in the BitStreams Tab in the Web Editor. The information includes BS ID, file name, file original path, extension, mime type and format ID (if successfully identified).

          We would like to suggest the following improvements for the BitStreams Tab and the bitstream information in general:

          1) Include Bitstream size. The relevant values can be found in…

          • Rework/rewrite AIP update functionality

            Since version 4, Rosetta includes a feature called AIP update. This feature is used mainly by libraries to alter data in the permanent repository, which might be necessary for a number of reasons. Metadata might need updating due to a typo or due to new research results, new files that weren't included in the original ingest might be added, or existing files might be altered with higher resolution versions or to repair defective files. Libraries tend to use this feature, because they regularly ingest SIPs that include a minimal set of metadata. Later, when full metadata have been allotted or…

            • customizable staff_work_area per institution

              As people who ingest data into and export data from Rosetta we would like to export IEs per institution.

              Currently the export directory for the whole consortium is (in our installation) /exlibris1/operational_shared/staff_work_area/

              Subdirectories are created when a user exports something for the first time. The subdirectories are named after the user, e.g. for user admin1 /exlibris1/operational_shared/staff_work_area/admin1/.

              We would like to have the export directory per institution, e.g. /exlibris1/operational_shared/staff_work_area/institution_1/ or /exlibris1/operational_shared/staff_work_area/institution_2/. The creation of subdirectories for users is fine as it is and we would like to keep that behaviour.

              Also, we would like to set the path for a parameter…

                • Flagging SIPs as Deleted when all IEs are deleted/purged

                  One of our institutions keeps track of the ingested SIPs in an external application. Here, it is currently not easily possible to trace SIPs for which all IEs have been deleted.

                  When deleting all IEs of a SIP in Permanent, the SIP itself cannot be found in a search in Permanent - however, the SIP itself is not flagged as deleted in the SIP Report and its status remains as "Permanent/Finsished" when querying for SIP Status via the API. External applications therefore can't easily see that the SIP actually doesn't exist anymore.

                  For external integrations it would be helpful to…
