  1. 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,

    Ryan

    • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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…

                • 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

                  • 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).

                    • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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…

                          • 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".

                            • Producer Mandatory Fields shall be controlled by a code table

                              As of now (version 5.3) there is no code table to control which fields are optional or mandatory when adding a producer.

                              We provide Rosetta as a service and the details (name, email, telephone etc.) of producers can be seen across the installation. This means that staff user 1 from institution A can see the details of the producers of all the other institutions. The workaround is to enter 123 as telephone.

                              Basically we would like Rosetta to be fully compliant with the concept of multi-tenancy.
                              Until this can be reached we would like to see code tables in use…

                                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…

                                  • 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:

                                    1) Include Bitstream size. The relevant values can be found in…

                                    • Support the ability for Rosetta to request IEs in batches

                                      We would like Rosetta to work more efficiently when the storage layer is tape based, particularly for exports. Could Rosetta request IEs in batches from the storage layer. when exporting large collections from tape a file is retrieved from tape one at a time.

                                      • Recalculate fixity SHA2 and insert into Rosetta

                                        We have around 22,000,000 files that we would like to recalculate a new fixity hash, but this time it would be SHA256. We need a good way of getting this fixity back into Rosetta. We would like to store it along with the SHA1 value we previously generated. We are aware that the SHA1 fixity is located in xml clob data in the hdemetadata table. We are wondering if there is another location for this SHA1 value in another table.
