    CSV ingest file - Allow Navigation on Collections

    Created By: dave allen

    It is easy to find the setting if you access the XML but to make life a bit easier if you plan on using this setting on a CSV ingest for Collectins then the values for the 'Allow Navigation' is true or false 

    I only use lower case true or false and the default is false

    This will set the 'Allow navigation' at ingest and saves having to run a collections task later on.

    One thing that I did notice was as follows -- if you set up the CSV as follows -- then the top collection level davetest5 will be created without the 'Allow Navigation' set 


     

    Object Type Title (DC) Collection Description Collection External Id Collection External System Allow Navigation Description (DC) Is Part Of (DCTERMS)
    SIP Corley davetest5            
    Collection Spool C86: davetest5 6169 Frank and Eunice Corley House Photographs: Spool C86: davetest5     true davetest5 realy great description /Frank and Eunice Corley House Photographs/davetest5/

     

     

    To overcome this I had to add an extra 'COLLECTION' line to make sure that the top collection level davetest5 was created with 'Allow Navigation' set
