  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. make

    As the set of supported operating systems is known and limited, it would be great to have a Rosetta installation path that uses the distributions' packet manager (e. g. yum) for the initial installation and all upgrade processes. This could facilitate disaster recovery, improve availability and reduce the time needed for upgrades (you could just run "yum upgrade"). DB connectivity etc. could be checked during the package installation.

  5. 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…

  6. CMS Update

    submitted on behalf of Michele Lindlar

    Sometimes it's neccessary to update our cms metadata. if a librarian changes a record in the external cms-system, we want to update the record in rosetta too, but there's no task that works accordingly. we'd be really happy if there would be a task chain or a process that re-harvest existing cms-records.

    We currently integrate two catalogue systems via SRU in Rosetta: Aleph and Pica. Both systems are integrated uni-directoinal, as in a Rosetta flag is not available in either cataloguing system. As we are integrating the union catalogues which are held by third…

  7. print image files in batch

    now on IE viewer users/librarians have to print every single image files under one IE. I hope there is a print all/in part function.

  8. 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.

  9. 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".

  10. 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.

    2. could be tested…

  11. 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).…

  12. Changes to "Find duplicates job"

    Right now the "Find duplicates job" only checks a handful of elements for duplicate values. I would like to either ask Ex Libris to make the fields that it is searching configurable or to add original file name to the list of elements that are searched.

  13. View preservation history of IE

    posted on behalf of Amy Joseph, NLNZ

    As a researcher, I want to be able to understand the history of an IE including preservation actions.

    As an admin, I want to be able to configure the system to display versions of a representation by EventType, so that a user can navigate between different versions of a preservation master or other rep

  15. 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.

  16. IIIF Universal Viewer - Download Options - filename

    When selecting the download option would like to be able to configure the download file name.
    Currently the file name is ‘default.jpg’
    Would like to configure the download so that the download file name can use one of the following options
    1. <dc:title> (maybe the first 30 characters); or
    2. <internalIdentifierValue>
    SLQ would prefer the <dc:title> option

  17. IIIF Universal Viewer - Share Options

    Would like to configure the ‘Share’ option.
    At this stage the only share options are
    1. Embed
    2. URL link
    Would like to configure the ‘Share’ option to allow adding the following additional social media options
    1. Facebook
    2. Twitter
    3. LinkedIn
    4. Various citation options such as RefWorks

    As part of the share option we would like to configure what information is passed across. For example, for Twitter, SLQ would like to pass
    1. Handle/PI information
    2. Title
    3. Image
    4. Any appropriate hashtags

  18. Expand the search scope of the search box on web collection page

    Is it possible to expand the search scope of the search box on web collection page from the current collection to all its sub-collections and itself?

    For example, I tried to search IE2119194 by its partial title "South Korea's economic puzzle" on the following page;

    http://rosetta-app.snu.ac.kr:1801/delivery/action/collectionViewer.do?collectionId=109127824&operation=viewCollection

    but no matching IEs were found, because the IE belongs to the collection(id=109127824)'s sub-sub-sub collection(138846884).


    • 109127824 > 138830885 > 138834664 > 138846884

    Would like the search bar for be available and indication where the search word if located in the PDF

    Download options would be driven by Entity Type
