Re: [EP-tech] bug in ORCID Support plugin?

I found the source of the issue: an old (pre ORCID Support plugin) function for ORCID validation was left behind (from this page: https://wiki.eprints.org/w/ORCID) in our eprint_validate file.

It wasn’t causing problems until now; probably due to some changes to how perl runs on Ubuntu 12 vs 18 (we recently upgraded).

So good news, the problem is not with the plugin, as all I had to do was remove my old code that shouldn’t have been left behind in eprint_validate.

I also upgraded our plugin to the latest version (from 1.3.3 to 1.7) of ORCID Support from the bazaar.

Subject: [EP-tech] bug in ORCID Support plugin?


We have ORCID Support plugin installed on Eprints 3.3.12.

I thought this was working fine, but today I’m getting reports that users are getting this error:


“The ORCID () has been specified in Authors that is not valid or formatted incorrectly.”


Whenever one of the authors listed in the metadata doesn’t have an ORCID included.

The error message doesn’t appear if there is only 1 author without an ORCID.

As soon as there is at least one ORCID supplied, the system is requiring all authors to have an ORCID.


Has anyone else experienced this?

Is this a missing setting, or some other known issue?
