  1. Make Standard Upload procedure for 3A configurable (Applet vs. manual upload)

    When adding representations via the 3A workbench, the default procedure is the applet upload. Due to security settings, the applet may not be available in some environments. In this case, the user has to click the "Load the files manually" link located on the left to then switch to the manual upload procedure, which works fine.
    To avoid these extra steps it would be nice to set the default upload procedure (applet or manual) for 3A workflows via a general parameter.

    • In Material Flows: remove option to "automatically extract compressed files" when the Content Structure is changed to METS

      The material flow configuration includes the default option to "automatically extract compressed files". This option works in all workflows except METS content structure work flows, as extracting compressed files leads to mismatches in the METS struct map.
      Material flow configuration screens should blend out the extraction option for METS content structure or make the user aware of a faulty configuration upon saving such a combination.

      • Report or other method to show locked IEs

        IEs can be locked due to different reasons. A user may have manually locked an object in Permanent and forgotten to unlock it, or there may be an issue with a hanging or incorrectly aborted processes, causing an IE to be locked by a system process.
        Locked objects cause problems in the system, especially when trying to run another process over a locked IE. Currently, there is no available method through which the user can check which IEs are locked. We currently have to open a ticket with support who identifies locked IEs for us.
        It would be helpful to…

        • relative paths in IE XML / Storage Migration

          Rosetta 5.2 has brought a new Storage Migration feature that enables institutions to restructure their permanent storage to fit changing requirements. However, the documentation currently warns that "Disconnecting legacy storage is not recommended as it may prevent the possibility of reverting to a previous IE version." (https://knowledge.exlibrisgroup.com/Rosetta/Product_Documentation/Version_5.2, Preservation Guide, page 185). As far as I can see, this limitation is due to the use of absolute paths in the IE XML files. The paths in older versions of these files cannot be updated without forging provenance information, which, of course, isn't an alternative. However, updating these paths would…

          • 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…

            • Create Itemized Sets for Representations (REPs) and Files

              We're trying to create an itemized set of File PIDs in Rosetta to run a fixity check, but we're receiving an error message that Rosetta can't find the PIDs. It looks like Rosetta is expecting a list of IEs in order to create an itemized set. Is there another way to create an itemized set of File PIDs?

              Ultimately, we’d want to be able to make itemized sets with IEs, REPs, and Files.

              • Ability to abort an export

                There are times when an export job is run and due to an end-user mistake there is a need to cancel the export. Currently the UI does show an abort option but this does not cancel an export once it is initiated.

                  • Read-only user

                    As we've begun bringing more users into Rosetta we've seen the need for a different type of user, who could basically do these things:
                    *view/download IEs/files
                    *view the collection tree

                    But should not be able to:
                    *see/modify processes.
                    *delete IEs or purge the recycle bin

                    We checked using dummy accounts with 'Viewer/Editor - View' and 'Approver/Assessor/Arranger - View' but neither of these can see the collection tree, either from the data management menu or from the search screen. So, we'd like something similar Viewer-Editor-View but with access to the collection tree.

                    • Enhance UpdateMD web service to support DNX update

                      Currently, the updateMD web service is designed only for updating DC metadata. Updating DNX metadata is not supported. But tests have shown that DNX metadata can perfectly be updated using the updateMD web service – with the drawback, however, of losing some other DNX metadata such as Producer, Producer Agent, and Access Rights Policy. See attached file with a comparison of the IE METS before and after the updateMD process.

                      The getIE web service works fine in this regard, allowing you to choose between DC, DNX and source MD and giving you the complete metadata output.

                      We strongly argue that…

                      • OCR plugin that makes full text available to search

                        To create a full text searching capability, we are proposing a plugin that performs OCR on the files in Rosetta, and then makes that text output available via an API or other publishing mechanism, that can be read and indexed by an external CMS.

                        • Allow Retention Policy to not delete automatically

                          Besides of having the option to delete or delete permanently, a retention policy should also allow not to delete at all. Many institutions want to assign a retention period to their objects, but do not want to delete the IEs when the retention period is over. Instead they expect to receive a report where they can decide themselves which objects should be deleted.

                          • Allow full-text searching of all objects in an IE, not just one at a time.

                            There is a way to have Primo index the full text of PDFs that are in Rosetta which can help a user find which Rosetta IE has a document containing their term/phrase but then once the user clicks through to the Rosetta viewer there is no way for the user to know where their search term appears. Having the search term come through to the viewer would be great, but that would only work when there are a few PDFs. For IEs that contain dozens of PDFs the user would have to open each one and search for their term.…

                              As a researcher, I want to be able to always download a data file delivered to me in the web browser, regardless of its format. But to date, there is no such option in Rosetta.

                              The choice of specialized viewers is limited. A vast majority of formats will be handled by the “File Viewer” that leaves it up to the browser how to deal with a file – open it directly in the browser window or offer it for download. For some formats, it is possible to define a download or “save file” option in the browser settings. For the…

                              • 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…

                                  As the set of supported operating systems is known and limited, it would be great to have a Rosetta installation path that uses the distributions' packet manager (e. g. yum) for the initial installation and all upgrade processes. This could facilitate disaster recovery, improve availability and reduce the time needed for upgrades (you could just run "yum upgrade"). DB connectivity etc. could be checked during the package installation.
