  1. Rework/rewrite AIP update functionality

    Since version 4, Rosetta includes a feature called AIP update. This feature is used mainly by libraries to alter data in the permanent repository, which might be necessary for a number of reasons. Metadata might need updating due to a typo or due to new research results, new files that weren't included in the original ingest might be added, or existing files might be altered with higher resolution versions or to repair defective files. Libraries tend to use this feature, because they regularly ingest SIPs that include a minimal set of metadata. Later, when full metadata have been allotted or…

    • issues with indexing in Rosetta

      Here at SLUB, we're seeing a few issues with the way indexing is implemented in Rosetta.
      Currently, all Rosetta servers that are in the "Indexer" role hold a single part of the whole index with no redundancy between the indexing nodes. If there's an outage in one of the servers, there are two effects.
      N°1: One third of the index entries will not be available and the missing server will not take part in indexing any new IEs, obviously. The IE that was just being processed by this server will not be in the index and information about it will…

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • SRU request to get the file PID

            For a specific use case, we need to get the deep link of a file in Rosetta. Our idea is to use the SRU request for this purpose. But currently SRU requests only return IE-level responses, and not file-level information. We would like to see this changed and are asking for the option of a SRU response at file level to be added.

            • 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…

                • 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 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.…

                    • 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…

                      • "Unassign" functionality in Permanent TA

                        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…

                        • 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.

                          • Bitstream information in Bitstreams Tab

                            Researchers often use zip or tar files in order to upload large amounts of research data in various formats. Bytestream extraction is a useful tool for analyzing the content of these container files. The resulting bitstream information is written in the METS and displayed in the BitStreams Tab in the Web Editor. The information includes BS ID, file name, file original path, extension, mime type and format ID (if successfully identified).

                            We would like to suggest the following improvements for the BitStreams Tab and the bitstream information in general:

                            • "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.

                              • 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…

                                    • Export of full-lifecycle IE including all versions

                                      Something Rosetta is currently lacking is the possibility to export full IEs including all versions. Current export functionality only exports the latest version of an IE.

                                      Two use cases for this functionality of full lifecycle IE export: exit scenario;
                                      batch export of IEs post migration action to perform external analysis / comparison of different versions of the same digital object across different versions.

                                      • 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.…
