Re: [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.

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

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


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!
