Re: [EP-tech] User Roles

Hi David,

Thanks for this. As it happens I was heavily borrowing from the DataCite plugin because it seems to have a bit of everything in it. The only obvious difference I can see between that and mine (beyond the overall quality and programming ability) is the roles, but I was (and still am) convinced that the roles were for the appearance of the minting button.

I would have thought that, if I'd made an error in my code, the server would refuse to show me any EPrints pages after a restart until I'd fixed it. Perhaps Events work differently.

Hi James,

The DataCiteDOI Bazaar plugin contains an Event plugin that it used to calls DataCite to coin (mint) a DOI.  This sounds like it would be doing a similar thing to posting some (I think) JSON to generate a tweet:

Is it in github?  Can you link me to the code?

Hi All,

I rewrote my twitter bot using a different Perl module as it wasn't working how I wanted it to (failed with "special characters").

It worked when I rewrote it as a .pl in cfg.d. I then decided to rewrite it as an Event plugin as this seems like the "proper" way to do things. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

I can see that it gets added to the indexer and it subsequently fails.

One possible reason it fails is that I don't have any user roles set up for it. For an event plugin, do I need user roles to be set up?

I've tried to look at documentation for other plugins, but they also involve a "Screen" plugin which is what I assume the user roles are for. My plugin just uses the status change trigger to compile and send a tweet.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.
