Re: [EP-tech] EPrints DataCite Plugin



We haven't updated the plugin very recently so that's certainly an area to consider. We got it working late 2017 so we're at least one version behind.

The event que (cgi/users/home?screen=Listing&dataset=event_queue) is definitely empty and we used to get items here if minting failed. I can't get to EPRINTS_PATH/var/indexer.log myself.

Issues relating to any change of linux is also a good area to consider. This would be something for our IT department to look into.

Hi Michael,

There are a number of issues that have been fixed with this plugin based on looking at:


Which version of the DataCiteDoi plugin are you using and what operating system (e.g. RHEL 7, Ubuntu 16.04, etc.) is your EPrints repository running on.

This seems likely a likely issue:


However, I assume you have not recently changed your EPrints repository OS, so I am not sure how minting DOIs would have stopped working without you deliberately upgrading the OS.

Also can you check your indexer log (EPRINTS_PATH/var/indexer.log) for error message straight after trying to mint/coin a DOI.  Make sure any failed tasks for minting a DOI for the same EPrint have been deleted otherwise it is likely the task will not be created.
