    How to add more attributes in "Control Section Attribute Assignment" Task

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: DigiTool
    • Product Version: 3

    In Web Ingest, when Attribute Assignment is selected as a task, you get a form for Control Section Attribute Assignment. This allows you to enter up to three name/value pairs for control section attributes. However, you may want to set more than three attributes -- the control section itself has 7 attributes plus label and note. How do we change the form to include 7 name/value pairs?

    To change the Control Section Attribute Assignment form to display more name/value pairs, you need to modify the file repository_stream_handler.xml under /exlibris/dtl/j3_1/digitool/home/system/conf.

    In the file, there is a section that begins with the line:
    <preingest_handler name="Control section Attribute Assignment" task_name="AttributeAssignment" >

    You'll notice there are three name/value pairs there at the moment.

    You can increase the number of name/value pairs by adding more default_param name="Name" and default_param name="Value" pairs. Note that the name/value pairs are incremented by one: for instance, the three that are already there are Name1/Value1, Name2/Value2, Name3/Value3.

    You can also refer to the System Configuration Guide, Ingest, Section 6.2.
