[EP-tech] Re: Eprint fields problems

Hi Mike,

I believe the error is caused when a field is referenced in the workflow that doesn’t exist in the dataset – i.e. there isn’t a field ‘pubdom’.


The default field config for the EPrints dataset is in ~/archives/ARCHIVEID/cfg/cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl

Having the field names etc. in the XML file doesn’t add them to the system.


Once the fields have been defined, you can run ~/bin/epadmin update ARCHIVEID to add them to the database.


***Be careful if you’ve got data in the system – do it on a test instance first!***

Subject: [EP-tech] Eprint fields problems




I've migrated from v2 to v3.13 now and most of it is working.  I'm having issues though with the eprint fields when entering a new item.


In v2 we had many custom fields for each type of eprint.  Now the fields are all listed in a file called eprint_fields.xml, stored in the lang/en/phrases directory of the archive.  I know the file is being used because when I edit the name of one of the fields, it does reflect the change right away on the site.


However, there are a few fields that throw an error and I can't figure out why.  It says the error is in the workflow/default.xml file but I believe it errors because it cannot find a field definition for the field.  For example:


Unknown field reference pubdom in

<field ref="pubdom"/>


I'm not sure which part I'm missing here and why it only applies to certain fields and not all of them.
