Re: [EP-tech] RIOXX2 question

Figured this out and got the mapping working with our license data now! Thanks!


I am having a problem with the mapping on version now, however – it looks like it wants to derive this from a value called “content”, however I want to derive this from a document field called “stage”. I’ve tried reconfiguring the function to work in the same way as the license function, however this is throwing an error. Any thoughts on this?

Ah, so it’s passing our local value through a filter to make it compliant with RIOXX? That sounds like something that could come back to bite us if we’re just storing our local value. I’ll take a look into that further…

I think RIOXX has a controlled vocabulary for licenses, and ‘license_map’ is a lookup table to convert your local license captions into ones that RIOXX recognises.  I guess you could extend the lookup table to cover whatever values you are using. 


This is just from memory of looking at the RIOXX code a few weeks ago – feel free to shoot me down.

Hey all,


Currently configuring the RIOXX2 plugin and I hit an issue with the code that derives the license from the record. I’ve resolved it but I wanted to check to see if there was any problem with the way that I resolved it, as I’m not 100% sure what the original code was trying to do. The problem seemed to come from these lines:


my $license = $document->repository->config( "rioxx2", "license_map", $document->value( "license" ) );

return { undef } unless $license;


Which was always returning undef. I tweaked it to:


my $license = $document->value( "license" );

return { undef } unless $license;


Which returns the actual license and gives me an entry in RIOXX, however – is the $document->repository->config… part of the original line doing something specific that the corrected version is not that could cause me problems further down  the line?
