[EP-tech] Adding items to EP-XML template



> The XML export just exports all the fields on an object
Unless that field has
    export_as_xml => 0,

- like the suggestions field does by default?

What are you trying to achieve with your export?
Personally, I'd suggest subclassing that plugin, and adding a citation to it that way - as always, TMTOWTDI!
It depends on how and when you'll be calling the plugin.

If it's for active, user-generated requests, Adam's method may be more suitable, as the processing is done when a record is saved, rather than when a record is requested.

Cheers,
John

Hi Andrew

                The XML export just exports all the fields on an object.  I wouldn?t modify it if I were you.  The simplest way would be to add a new field to your item.

                I?m not sure if virtual fields come out in the XML export, but if they do, adding a virtual field to your object may be the easiest way to do this.  Alternatively, use an automatic field and write the citation to it.  See
https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Training_Video:Virtual_Fields and https://wiki.eprints.org/w/Training_Video:Automatic_Fields

Hi all,

Just took a dive into the EPrints XML export template (perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/XML.pm) to try and add a node for the records citation to it and I can?t see where you would do this? Is there somewhere separate that defines what data it pulls through?

Cheers in advance!
Andrew
