  • via Easy Submission
    • Easy Submission is a feature available for any user with depositing rights, ie. available for any collection.
    • Easy Submission mask is divided into the following steps:
      • Genre, Title, Files
      • Authors and Affiliations
      • Source Details and Date


UCUse Case_PM_SM_01 create item

The user selects a collection where she wants to create a new item. With this action the publication workflow is started.

Status/Schedule

  • Status: implemented
  • Schedule:R3

Triggers

  • The user wants to create a new item.
  • this use case may additionally be invoked by the following use cases:
    • create item from template
    • create new revision of an item
    • fetch metadata from external system

Actors

  • Depositor

Pre-Conditions

  • if this use case was invoked by another use case then a template item with default metadata and (optionally) a relation to an existing item is passed

Flow of Events

  • 1. The user chooses to create an item.
  • 2. The system displays a list of all collections and their description in state "opened" for which the user has the privileges as Depositor.
  • 3. The user selects a collection of her choice.
  • 4. continue with use case UC_PM_SM_02 edit item

Alternatives

  • 2a If the user has Depositor rights for only one collection, the collection selection is automatically performed by the system.
    • 2a.1. Continue with Flow of Events step 5.
  • 2b If the user has in his/her private preferences a target collection defined and the user has depositor privileges for that collection, the system automatically selects the collection.
    • 2b.1. Continue with Flow of Events step 5.

    • 2c.1 Continue with Flow of Events step 5.

Post-Conditions / Results

  • None

Future development

  • when creating new item default values for attributes and metadata values are inherited from the metadata set and the collection settings. Collection settings overwrite values inherited from the metadata set.

Creating organizations in Metadata

To provide information for the metadata element "Organization" the user has to select an organizational unit from the organizational unit structure. In this case for every path of the selected organizational unit in the organizational unit structure (an organizational unit can have more than one parent organizational unit) a metadata value "Organization" is created by the system. If only one "Organization" is allowed, only one metadata value "Organization" is created for the path taken by the user to select the organizational unit. The "Name" value is derived from the organizational unit path, the "Address" value is copied from the selected organizational unit. Additionally a link to the selected organizational unit is created by copying the organizational unit id. Afterwards the user can edit the name and the address of the organization or delete a complete organization. The modified values are stored in the metadata set, the data in the organizational unit structure is unaffected.
