    Deposit with custom fixity requires the Plug-In Name

    • Product: Rosetta
    • Product Version: 5.2 - 5.4


    When ingesting a SIP with custom fixity, for example SHA-512, the custom fixity Plug-In Name is mandatory.
    For example, the following METS deposit will only work with a value in the pluginName attribute:

    <section id="fileFixity">
    <key id="agent"/>
    <key id="pluginName">CustomFixitySHA512Plugin</key>
    <key id="fixityType">SHA-512</key>
    <key id="fixityValue">8F7...2517</key>

    Defect Status

    For Rosetta 5.5 and above, pluginName is no longer required. In order to use custom fixity (which can now be deposited as part of a CSV and BagIt, in addition to existing METS deposit), customers can add a record to the "fixityType" code table, mapping the fixity algorithm to custom fixity plugin name. The custom fixity types are searchable and available in "Checksum" and "Add Representation Checksum" tasks.
