  1. 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.

    • 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
        Milan

        • UI interface - Deposits: Delivery XSL Files | Details xsl viewer

          i have been working in the XSL viewer / editor -- to make it readable i have to copy and paste the information out of the XSL window -- reformat the information to make it readable -- however when I paste the reformatted XSL file into the Rosetta XSL editor the formatting gets lost -- for example <xsl:for-each> all of the information is wrapped back to a single line -- it would be great if the formatting is maintained in the Rosetta XSL editor

          • UI interface - Repository | General Settings | Events Configuration

            It wouls be greate if we could sort the display by 'Event Type' as this will allow easier matching to the Rosetta Configuration manul Appendix C whch lists events by ID number

            • "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.

              • Rosetta UX

                This is another Rosetta UX issue

                When you are viewing the DC Descriptive information it would be great to copy information from the 'Data' field

                Currently when you do a 'left' click to start highligthing the field the whole row moves.

                To do a copy from the field you have to edit the record.

                It oul dbe better if you can highlight and copy data without editing the records.

                To move / reorder d=fields it woul dbe better to grab a 'anchor' on the row instead

                  • Update Logical and Physical Structure Maps via Rosetta Back Office

                    Hello,

                    For IEs that have both a physical and a logical structure map, we would like to be able to globally change the default logical and physical structure map labels for Preservation Master in the Rosetta Back Office.

                    Thanks,

                    • SAML Authenication mapping with unique indentifier (ID) instead user name

                      Currently SAML authentication in Rosetta uses the user name for mapping to the IdP.

                      There is no guarantee that the user name is unique within one instituiton or does not get reused after a user has left the instition. This makes the field user name ambiguous.

                      It gets more problematic if users from more than one IdP want to authenticate for Rosetta. This happens in a consortia setup or when guest users are stored in a separate IdP. If authentication has to be set up with more than one IdP the user name will no longer be unique and it…

                      • 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:

                        • Rosetta UX

                          I am currently working in Rosetta 5.4 and there are a couple of UX isues that would make using the prodiuct a lot easier.

                          One of these is on the pull down list. It pwiuld be good if the pull-down lists were sorted alphabetically - for example when adding a New Deposit Material flow when I access the 'Select conent structure' the list that is display is in some sort of order but it is definettly not alphabetical

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  In SIP TA (Submissions – Technical Issues) it is possible to unassign a SIP that is assigned to somebody else by clicking on “Unassign”.
                                  However, this is not possible in Permanent TA (Data Management – Technical Issues) – there is no way to unassign an IE that is assigned to another person. This can be an issue if that person is absent for a longer period and the IE remains blocked. The only possible workaround I can think of is to change the other person’s password and use his/her user account to unassign the IE – but that’s certainly not…

                                  • Add report in migration plugin

                                    The migration plugin is part of preservation and is the way in Rosetta to migrate bitstreams from an obsolete format to an uptodate format. It is a script plugin receiving a file and delivering the newly migrated file.
                                    For purpose of transparency it would be necessary to add a report about what has changed. For example when migrating pdf to pdf/a it might happen, that a font was included or even replaced. Having a report would implement a well documented preservation workflow. Depending on the migration tool the report might be quite complex.

                                    So it would be nice to add…

                                    • Solr Startup Checker Plugin

                                      After having had some issues with the new default Solr port in Rosetta 5.4.0.0, I suggest creating a startup checker plugin for Rosetta to test for Solr availability. Possible error scenarios involve:
                                      1.) network down
                                      2.) Name resolution down/misconfigured
                                      3.) Solr default port closed in the local firewall / Solr not listening

                                      1. & 2. could be checked by pinging the other servers' DNS names (NOT the IPs), which would test network availability and DNS resolution in one step. As Rosetta servers usually are located in the same subnet, we don't have to worry about ICMP firewall restrictions.
                                      3. could…

                                      • Best fit mode for the JWPlayer in IE viewer

                                        With the new IE viewer in version 5.4 the JWPlayer (for video and audio) does not have a best fit parameter meaning that the right-hand side of the player is hidden under the metadata pane. The only way to see the whole player is to close the metadata pane manually or zoom out in your browser. We would like to see a “best fit” parameter added to the JWPlayer in Rosetta so that the behavior would match the jpeg viewer (which fits itself to the frame by default).

                                        Thanks,

                                          When Scheduling Reports for different Institutions, the Email received does not contain any information about where the Data comes from. If you want to know IEs in permanent, you would not know wheter it is about Institution A or B. It would be great if the Institution or a custom information-text-content would be sent either with the email or be included in the report itself. The Report in my special case is "Repository Stats" in "Data Management".
