  1. multi-client capability for external migration in Preservation Plan

    In a preservation plan it is possible to migrate objects using external alternatives. To do this, the objects are exported, migrated externally and then re-imported.
    Unfortunately it is not possible to configure the export path. Therefore it is also not possible to perform migrations separated by institution. At other places in Rosetta this is already implemented. For example, an export path can be entered when exporting an IE. To enable Rosetta's multi-client capability, it would be necessary to separate by institution when exporting in the Preservation Plan.

  2. Allow export of all instances of an element from Search for Objects

    When you use the "Search for Objects" from the Data Management menu you can customize the columns and then export those columns easily to a CSV file. One issue we have is that only the first instance of an element is displayed and exported. For example, if we have multiple occurrences of dc:identifier only the first one will show and be exported. We would like all instances of each element to be included - perhaps with a separator like a semi-colon (or something else).

  4. UX: improve list view of IE delivery rules

    The IE delivery rule list contains the following fields:
    - active
    - name
    - description
    - creation date
    - modification date
    - commands view, edit and delete

    the dates and commands take up half of the screen, not leaving much space for the name and description. Both these fields are rarely descriptive enough to fully understand the implication of the rule and we have had several occasions where an operator added a rule, changed the order or modified a rule without understanding its impact. Resulting in wrong viewers being used or even files not viewable at all.

    We think the…

  5. Material flow simplification by making things optional

    Currently the material flow combines amongst others, a restrictive list of access rights, retention policies and metadata fields. These operate as restrictions on which access rights, retention policies and metadata fields can be supplied by the submitter. We suggest to make it possible to opt-out on any of these restrictions. That would benefit customers that have automated submission workflows outside of Rosetta where the metadata is already checked for validity and fully under control. It would also help solving human errors when new ARs are created, but forgotten to be added to their respective material flows. If it not possible…

  6. Rosetta REST API to Retreive IE

    Would like a REST API which will retrieve a Rosetta IE METS record

    You can retrieve the METS by adding 'dps_func=mets' to the delivery URL -

    https://digital.slq.qld.gov.au/delivery/DeliveryManagerServlet?changelng=en&dpspid=IE305955&dps_func=mets

    however, the delivery manager will not deliver the METS information if there is are access rights preventing the delivery of the digital asset

    so would like a way to retrieve the METS data regardless of the access rights on the asset

  7. Additional Rosetta Collections REST API

    The current Rosetta REST APIs return infromation about a collection structure.

    We would like a REST API which will return all of the IEs attached to a Rosetta Collection

    The information is currently stored in the Oracle VIEW COLLECTIONMEMBERSVIEW

  8. Web Service for Bagit ingest to automate the whole process

    Beginend from Rosetta version 5.2 functionality for Bagit must be improved in further versions. Especially a new web service for Bagit ingest must be developed, because no one want to do manual ingest per GUI interface the whole day if there are a lot of Bagits waiting to be deposited. My option is to improve submitDepositActivity so it can recognise Bagit Structure and so on. Or if it is to complicated to rebuild submitDepositActivity, than to develop a new one. Hope to see this web service in a near future. Sincerely yours, Serhiy

  9. Preservation Sets - Search levels IE/REP/FILE

    as a preservation manager I would appreciate to be able to switch between the search levels IE/REP/FILE when working with Preservation Sets.
    I agree, that migrations are on file level, but it would be helpful to know how many IEs/which IEs are involved in a Preservation Set. The test set also shows a list of IEs. Furthermore a lot of information for toubleshouting comes on IE-Level: view problematic IEs, view skipped objects, reports on locked IEs,...

  10. BagIt-Validation based on 1.0 standart

    By manuel ingest, the validation of Bag according to 1.0 standard, is not fully supported. It does not check the tag manifest file checksums for their correctness. Maybe there are some other holes which you can add in a comment.

  11. Verify numbers of files in CSV and Zip match as part of CSV/Zip deposit method

    As part of the CSV/Zip deposit method, Rosetta verifies that all files in the CSV are in the Zip. It does not, however, check if all files in the Zip are listed in the CSV.

    We recently discovered that for 5 of our IEs, the CSVs were incomplete and missing a few thousand files. Even though the Zips contained more files, the deposits went through successfully and the files not listed in the CSVs were not preserved.

    I propose that as part of the deposit process, Rosetta checks the number of files in both the CSV and Zip and verify…

  12. Option to check fixity on export

    Currently, when you export a file, REP or IE from Rosetta you will get an error if there is a problem with exporting the file. However, we have had at least one instance where the file seemed to export without issue but the file couldn't be opened (it was corrupt) and we were able to see that the checksum of the file did not match the checksum stored in Rosetta for that file. This helped us diagnose an issue with the way our storage layer was delivering the file. If Rosetta included an optional checksum calculation on export (the type…

  13. Use .LOCKED file or similar while IE export is still in progress

    When exporting large IEs with multiple REPs, it is hard to tell whether the export is finished or not. This becomes especially problematic when running an external automatic job which pulls IEs from the export directory before export has actually been completed.
    It would be beneficial to flag a partially exported IE, e.g. via a .LOCKED file which is deleted once the export is complete.

  15. Closed Caption capabilities

    We are creating MP4 deliverables with soft embedded 'Closed captioning'. In addition, we have the WebVTT file used to create the 'closed captioning'.

    We would like the OOB Videojs to allow customers to switch on/off closed captioning. At the moment this capability is not present in the OOB viewer. This support is available for VideoJS - https://github.com/videojs/video.js/blob/master/docs/guides/text-tracks.md. This functionality needs to be added as an enhancement to the VideoJS player and any new OOB Video players

    This is also accessibility issue that we need to address

  16. Size stats about IE/REP in results view

    I would like an easier was to see the size of an IE/REP both in number of files and storage size. Right now, the only way I can see to get the size of the IE in terms of storage is to search at the file level for all files in that IE and then export the results to CSV and add up the size column (in bytes). Same goes for number of files except you can also see them when you’re in the Meditor in the metadata for the Rep. It doesn't seem like adding at least the number…

  17. Events for DNX Validation

    with version 6.0 DNX validation was introduced for METS deposits and any AIP update. Furthermore the .xsd will be versioned. As for now I cannot find any event describing the validation process, the name and version of .xsd used for validation, the agent, the event outcome (success). I would appreciate events documenting this validation. In my opinion this is worth a provenance event, like file format identification event 25.

  18. Add "View Migrated Objects" to Preservation Executions History

    as a preservation manager I would appreciate to find the history of the execution of signed-off preservation plans in one place. Therefore it would be helpful to have the list of migrated IEs ( the report of event 355 - Representation was added by preservation plan) in Preservation/Preservation Executions/Signed-off Plans/Executions History/Blocks History, for example as "View Migrated Objects" in addition to "View Skipped Objects".

  19. Save Set information for repeated Processes

    Save Set information for repeated Processes

    When setting up a recurring Process that uses a Set with different values each time, Rosetta does not keep a record of the Set values each time it is generated, so that you cannot Rerun the previous Process instances in History. We propose a change to the recording of Set metadata so that each time a Set is used, its values are stored, thus allowing a Historical Process to be rerun at a later date. An example is rolling fixity checks, wherein a different range of SIPs are checked each day using the same…

  20. Create task/job for adding/updating file-level metadata

    I know I can add file-level descriptive metadata (DC) individually to a file in the back office or use the web services to do that for many files at once, but I want to be able to add metadata to a batch of files using a process in the back office. In my case, I would be adding the same DC record to a large group of files but I can also see the need to have a different DC per file so I would send Rosetta a bunch of DC XML files - one for each file PID, similar…
