  1. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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

  6. 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).

  7. Configure General Rep Viewer to display logical structmap

    The General Representation Viewer only displays the physical structmap if there is one. It should be possible to to configure the Delivery Rule / Representation Profile for the General Rep Viewer to show the logical structmap instead.

  8. Scheduled Reports with Institution in Email-Header

    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".

  9. change to Rosetta METS XSD re: duplicate file IDs

    During a recent batch of deposits (see case 00477041 from the Getty for more info) we figured out that, due to an error in our one of our input files that creates the METS, our original METS file did not have unique file IDs in the structMaps for the preservation master and modified master representations. It was simply repeating the same file ID from the access file representation.

    For some reason, this did not cause a METS validation error when we validated against the Rosetta XSD before deposit, nor when it was deposited. However, it resulted in the METS in…

  10. Configure the delivery rules to display only logical structure maps, and not physical ones

    We would like the ability to configure the delivery rules to display only logical structure maps, and not physical ones as for one of our institutions, we’d like NOT to deliver the physical structMap, and only the logical one.

    Thanks,

  12. untangle format identification/validation/MDextraction

    In the course of the discussion on the "File Extension Mismatch - Change Notice" posted on BaseCamp by Opher Kutner (ExL), I noticed that some aspects of file identification/validation/MDextraction in Rosetta need improvement. What got me thinking was the statement that format identification was done by the extractor, which isn't the case. Instead, the actual behaviour is that the MdExtractionPlugin also does the format validation, while the format identification is run separately in DROID. However, the job of extractors is neither format identification nor format validation. Instead, it's metadata extraction only. Usually, a preservation repository can't even know which extractor…

  13. Additional rule input parameter: material flow

    Since the organization levels in Rosetta are limited to consortium and institution, we often have to ingest objects of different origin an type into a single institution. This poses problems as for certain sources you want to activate more or less extraction and/or file extension rules that for other sources. Currently we have to leave the more permissive rules off, make the SIPs fail and end up in the TA, enable the permissive rules, rerun the SIPs and finally disable the permissive rules.

    This is a pain and requires many manual interventions that are error-prone and can influence other ingests…

  14. IE Viewer enhancements

    Fist of all I like the looks of the new repository viewer and looking forward to the new IE viewer that Adi showed in the Rosetta 5.3 highlights webinar. There are a couple of things I would like to see in the new IE viewer, though:

    The new metadata panel looks great, but should be collapsible to make more room for the viewer panel. The same is true for the content panel.

    For some collections in Rosetta, no or hardly any descriptive metadata was available during ingest. The DC record for those IEs is typically empty except for a dc:title…

  15. Make IE Viewer share button configurable

    The share button in the IE Viewer currently always shows the browser URL. Often the IE has an OID or some persistent URL that is preferred over the transient viewer URL. Rosetta should allow the URL that is displayed to be configurable. Preferably with an XSLT per institution similar to the IE metadata XSLT.

    It is also desirable to allow for more than 1 URL in the share window. That would allow to add URLs for standalone vs embedded viewers, thumbnail view, CMS metadata view, etc.

  16. Ability to integrate our Ingest tool with Rosetta

    We are looking at supporting the ability to add a new format to our Ingest tool, in conjunction with this we would like that to trigger some type of API call to Rosetta and add the file format as an allowed format as well.

    In Rosetta you can add a new file extension in the Submission Format area of the UI. We have provided the option to add a new format in our Ingest tool, So once they do this, we would like this to trigger an some type of API call to Rosetta and add the new file extension…

  17. Allow institutional parameters for (custom) plugins

    In a consortial landscape a plugin may be used by several institutions. However, each institution may need to use different parameters for a shared plugin.

    To give examples, consider these two business cases:
    (1) A plugin utililzes proprietary 3rd party software that is licenced per institution. In such case we must ensure that only the institutions that actually pay the licence fee have access to the functionality. The license key would have to be configured per institution.
    (2) A PDF migration plugin can take different input parameters which determine the output format to be created (e.g. to PDF/A-1b vs. PDF/A-2b).…

  18. Take account of the METS mimetype attribute during file ingest

    The METS standard has a mimetype attribute on files "<file MIMETYPE="application/pdf" ... /> but this information is currently ignored by Rosetta during the file-type identification process on ingest.

    Mimetye should be at least as reliable as file extensions (because mimetype is a standard, is actively maintained and widely use by a good portion of software for identifying file types).

    In particular, recognising mimetypes is likely to greatly increase the ease of ingest of content from internet-facing content management systems where it is very widely used

  19. encrypt all update channels

    After experiencing some problems with Rosetta's Format Library update mechanism (see SC 00423700 "error while updating Format Library [Rosetta 5.1.0.2]", handled by Paul), we got thinking about Rosetta updates in general. Currently, all updates are downloaded through an unencrypted connection. This includes:
    - Rosetta updates (major, minor, service packs, hotfixes) and their checksum files (!)
    - Oracle updates and their checksum files
    - PDS updates (presumably)
    - Format Library updates
    Due to this, there's no way to verify authenticity of ExLibris' servers and the integrity of the update packages/the checksums. All information that are downloaded from ExLibris' servers must be…

  20. provide Rosetta developer previews

    ExLibris' current mode of releasing new Rosetta versions is to announce a rough time slot ("April this year") for that new version/minor-release/servicepack/hotfix, release it and deliver a list of changes along with the new release. Up until the actual release, ExLibris will only give a very general roadmap of the planned changes. While this is an easy approach for ExLibris, it's hard for the customers to prepare for the release. Therefore, I propose for ExLibris to provide pre-release versions of Rosetta in order to enable developers to adapt their software (i.e. Submission Applications) to new features, changed API behaviour etc.…
