  1. Small change to Create Derivative Copy task

    Right now when you use the Create Derivative Copy task you have to select a plug-in type (either Transformation Profile or Stream Handler) even in cases where you are not transforming anything - we create derivative copy representations that are exact copies of the preservation master representation with no transformations. I would like to have a 3rd radio button - something like "None" - added. Since we're not selecting any file formats and we are choosing "Copy other extensions" the system is doing what we need it to do and we think it's odd to have to choose a plugin…

    • make passwords configurable, create password exchange infrastructure

      For compliance purposes and as a lesson learned from SC 00560356, I suggest improving the documentation and configurability of passwords throughout subsystems of Rosetta installations.

      I suggest creating and maintaining a KB article on how and where to change passwords for:
      - System user "dps"
      - System user "oracle"
      - Oracle user "sys"
      - default Rosetta user "admin1" (John Smith)
      - Cantaloupe Image Server user "admin" (changeable by configuring ".../system.dir/thirdparty/tomcat/rosetta-webapps/cantaloupe.war/cantaloupe.properties")
      - Solr user
      - Rosetta console UI user

      The passwords for Solr and the Rosetta console UI cannot be changed at the moment (Rosetta 5.5.0.0); I suggest considering changes to…

      • Changes to "Find duplicates job"

        Right now the "Find duplicates job" only checks a handful of elements for duplicate values. I would like to either ask Ex Libris to make the fields that it is searching configurable or to add original file name to the list of elements that are searched.

        • Counter / SUSHI support in Rosetta

          Increasingly libraries and consortia are using counter / sushi to measure usage of digital and electronic resources across disparate parts of their holdings.

          If holdings being held in Rosetta are to be valued by the broader institutions funding and maintaining those resources, we need to be able to report usage using the counter and sushi protocols (which ExLibris has already demonstrated knowledge of in their support in ALMA and 265 services).

          Key features would be basic counter and sushi reporting; use of IP ranges and user groups already defined in Rosetta for reporting; and grouping or content by already defined…

          • I want to search all members of a specific set that I created on Search for Object page(not on Sets page)

            I want to search all members of a specific set that I created on Search for Object page(not on Sets page) to and and export(view) more columns like Date (DC), Is part of (DC), etc.

            The set has its ID so we though it's possible to search the itemized set itself by building a search query.

            • CMS Update

              submitted on behalf of Michele Lindlar

              Sometimes it's neccessary to update our cms metadata. if a librarian changes a record in the external cms-system, we want to update the record in rosetta too, but there's no task that works accordingly. we'd be really happy if there would be a task chain or a process that re-harvest existing cms-records.

              We currently integrate two catalogue systems via SRU in Rosetta: Aleph and Pica. Both systems are integrated uni-directoinal, as in a Rosetta flag is not available in either cataloguing system. As we are integrating the union catalogues which are held by third…

              • OOB viewing report for list of IEs

                I would like to be able to give Rosetta a list of IEs and it will return the number of times each of the IEs has been viewed. Right now you can see the top 100 viewed or you can use the IE events report to get number of views for a specific IE, but I want to run this on a set of IEs.

                    • Enable re-enrichment with CMS records

                      Rosetta knows two CMS integration options: unidirectional and bi-directional. The bidirectional integration requires a Rosetta flag to be set in the CMS system. Via the flag, all Rosetta-relevant records from the CMS can be gathered and the metadata pool within Rosetta updated in bulk on a regular basis. However, institutions may be using a CMS for enrichment which belongs to a different / external institution, making the addition of a Rosetta-flag within the CMS system impossible.
                      This is where the unidirectional enrichment comes to play. The CMS is queried via SRU integration and records are pulled into Rosetta. The pre-requisite…

                      • Clean-up job for operational repository file system

                        Currently the clean-up job removes old data from deposit storage. Clean up job should clean also Operational Repository / Storage Repository Group file system. Data related to finished SIPs or committed IEs should be remove after some period from the FS path which is configured for operational repository.

                        The job should not remove data in TA area.

                        best regards

                        • Assigning a valid SSO user to a default account if one does not exist

                          We do not wish to have all of our institutional users in Rosetta, leaving that for administrators and publishers.

                          When a user has signed in successfully through SSO (in our case ADFS) we know that they are from our institution, so we should be able to do access rights rules based on this.

                          We are also able to pass through extra parameters through SAML to identify the type of user, and where they have come from, it would be great to be able to assign such users to basic user accounts so we can have granular access rights to IE's…

                            • "Download all" function with 5.4 should preserve original folder structure

                              I tested the new "Download all" function in the General IE Viewer and found that the original folder structure of the files within the representation is not preserved in the IE.zip, even if there is a logical structmap and the folder structure is displayed in the viewer. This is contrary to the IE Export where the original folder structure is kept in the REP.tar. It would be good to have the "download all" functionality modified. When a complex IEs with a hierarchical structure is downloaded through the viewer, the directory structury according to the structmap should be kept.

                                    • New (additional) print / download functionality with configurable / restricted amount of pages

                                      Because of new legal situation we may offer for our users to print or download a part of restricted documents, currently 10% per session.

                                      This means we would like to integrate an additional functionality in our viewers with a download/print button, which calculates and allows to download / print 10 percent of opened IE, only once per viewer session.

                                      Maybe it is possible to enhance the new Rosetta "download all" feature with this requirement? From user guidance we see this at the same position and configurable via delivery rules too.

                                      • Containerize the Rosetta Server Infrastructure

                                        We would like to be able to install and run the Rosetta server in a docker container.

                                        Docker containers allow infrastructure to be managed more efficiently and at scale. Also, running Rosetta in a docker container would allow us to have the option to deploy it into cloud infrastructure.

                                        • Make General IE Viewer more configurable

                                          We at the BSB have different types of material to be displayed with the General IE Viewer (Version 5.4). We suggest to make the configuration of the General IE Viewer more flexible.

                                          1. Configurable display of panes
                                          In general it would be very useful to be able to configure the standard display of panes. For each the content structure pane and the descriptive metadata pane there should be three different modes of display:
                                          Display as standard (the panes are displayed when the viewer is opened and can be closed if the viewer clicks on the grey area of the frame…
