Re: [EP-tech] Sword 2.0 access control

Urgh, seems like my CURL commands got mangled!

They should be:

curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/vnd.eprints.data+xml;" -X PUT --data-binary @"eprintstest-eprint-41850.xml" -u USERNAME  MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "kar-test.kent.ac.uk" claiming to be https://someserver.example.org/id/eprint/41850

and to update:

curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/vnd.eprints.data+xml;" -X PUT --data-binary @"eprintstest-eprint-123456.xml" -u USERNAME  MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from "kar-test.kent.ac.uk" claiming to be https://someserver.example.org/id/eprint/123456

Hi everyone,

We have working SWORD integration. We were told these commands to create new records and updates:

Record creation:

curl -v -H "Content-Type: application/vnd.eprints.data+xml;" -X POSThttps://someserver.example.org/id/contents

and updates...


To generate the file for the update I went to "Actions" -> "Export" -> "EP3 with File XML" - this gives you an XML file with the correct EPrint and file IDs.

Additionally, we paid for some work from EPrints a little while ago to correct an issue when updating documents. I think it was an issue with the document ids not being honoured which caused problems updating document metadata. We have a patch for this and I think it is in 3.4, but not sure the patch made it to 3.3.

Hope this helps

Hi Andrew,

I spent ages struggling with easyDeposit, then got it working in a day with CURL. 


I have a separate staging system that brings together the metadata and the documents then generates ep-xml with embedded base64 files.  Then this bit of PHP does the CURL and pushes it at the SWORD/CRUD api.  This is to create a new eprint.  I never managed to get updates working, other than by downloading the whole thing in XML, manipulating the XML, and pushing it back again – and that only works on the eprint record, I could never work out how to do anything with the file and document metadata.




==========CURL FRAGMENT====================================

$oaPub_ID=$_REQUEST['oaPub_ID'];  # Call this script with the number of the record to upload

$ch = curl_init();


curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, $username . ":" . $password);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://researchonline.lshtm.ac.uk/id/contents");

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);




$pkgheader=Array('X-Packaging: http://eprints.org/ep2/data/2.0',

                 'Content-Type: text/xml',

                 'Metadata-Relevant: true',

                 'X-Verbose: true' ,

                 'In-Progress: false'); # TRUE => user inbox;  FALSE => review              




// test from static file

// $file_in = "$DOCROOT/publications/eprint5.xml";  test file

// $data=""



// live XML fetch 

$html_in="http://pubdb.lshtm.ac.uk/publications/OAmgr/OAmgr_upload/eprints_xml.php?filter=oaPub_ID&value=$oaPub_ID";  #fetches eprints XML from the staging system




curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST,1);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $data);




($result=curl_exec($ch) )|| die( "curl_exec failed: ". curl_error($ch));



echo "<pre>";

echo  $result;

echo "</pre>";


preg_match('/<link rel="edit" href="">

echo "<a href=''>Result</a>";





    print "\n\nID=$ID\n";

    echo  $result;

}else{curl_close($ch); die( "\n\nNo ID found in eprints response: Deposit failed");}

// close cURL resource, and free up system resources




// very crude and verbose reporting, followed by some more stuff the passes the eprint ID back to the staging DB

I tinkered with SWORD a while back but don’t recall making much headway over being able to create a blank record. I think anything more than that was a bit like pulling teeth.

Hi all,

Does anyone have a successful SWORD implementation?  I’m trying to access /sword-app/servicedocument  and /id/contents via the browser, whilst logged in to the repository and I just get bounced off to a not-authorised page.

Not sure if either of those should be legible to me and it’s our access control blocking me, or if I’m not supposed to be able to get to either via a browser and should be doing something via CURL.  I’ve seen the SWORD and CRUD pages on the Wiki but I’m not making any headway at the moment.
