[EP-tech] Re: changing default user type



Hi John,

Thanks, I have left the system level registration file alone and made changes in the repo specific file.

And now it all works.  We have Wizards ?. I don?t know how I missed it?

Cheers
Matt.

Hi Matt,
I think the magic (that is slightly more magic than yours) may be in this spell:
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/registration.pl#L25

Cheers,
John

Subject: [EP-tech] changing default user type

Hi All,

I thought this would be a simple experiment? change the default value for a user record when it gets created from ?user? to ?editor?.

Altering the local file ?/archive/xxxxx/cfg/cfg.d/user_fields_default.pl file to include the line

$data->{type} =      "editor";

Doesn?t appear to work as expected?

Even altering a default (that I didn?t know existed, until I tried to figure out what was going wrong!)
Within ?/perl_lib/EPrints/DataObj/User.pm, there is a sub ?get_system_field_info?, that contains a default setting as well?

{ name=>"usertype", type=>"namedset", required=>1,
              set_name=>"user", input_style=>"medium", default_value=>"user" },

Anyone got any ideas ?

Cheers

Matt
