[EP-tech] Re: Importing files from another system



Hi Seb,
Thanks for this - but how much of the data structure should I include when trying to make a new eprint?
E.g. I don't have an eprintid, docid, fileid, so can't include them.

I /could/ supply a mime_type, but should eprints be able to work this out from the file?
Should the filename be calculated from the <url>, or do I have to specify this? (I see some fun with XSLT coming my way :o)

>From a bit more testing, I think this is the minimal set of data to get a file into the system, from the local file system (although you'd want to map more data in there if you had it!):

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<eprints xmlns='http://eprints.org/ep2/data/2.0'>
  <eprint>
    <documents>
      <document>
        <files>
          <file>
            <datasetid>document</datasetid>
            <filename>thumb.jpg</filename>
            <url>file:///tmp/files/thumb.jpg</url>
          </file>
        </files>
        <format>image</format>
        <security>public</security>
        <main>thumb.jpg</main>
      </document>
    </documents>
    <eprint_status>archive</eprint_status>
    <userid>1</userid>
    <type>image</type>
    <creators>
      <item>
        <name>
          <family>test</family>
          <given>test</given>
        </name>
        <id>test at test.com</id>
      </item>
    </creators>
    <title>test</title>
  </eprint>
</eprints>

Hope that helps someone in the future - and thanks for your help today!
John

Hi John,

See an example attached - tested on 3.3.9, imported this way:

bin/import <REPO_ID> --enable-file-imports --enable-web-imports --user 1 
--verbose eprint XML ./export2.xml

Seb.

PS: in the attached XML, I replaced the URL of my dev machine with 
__REPO_URL__, change this to your repository URL.
