    UpdateMD web services

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Rosetta
    • Product Version: 3.2.2

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How to use UpdateMD Web Services, to update dc:rights for example

    Procedure:
    1. For dc use
    type=descriptive
    subtype=dc.

    2. UpdateMD requires a metadata object , not a string.
    'content' value needs to be wrapped in CDATA, e.g.:

    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:dps="http://dps.exlibris.com/">
    <soapenv:Header/>
    <soapenv:Body>
    <dps:updateMD>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <pdsHandle>274201410513102616312000337801</pdsHandle>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <PID>IE1000</PID>
    <!--Zero or more repetitions:-->
    <metadata>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <content><![CDATA[<dc:record xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:dcterms="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:mods="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3 http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-3-0.xsd">
    <dc:creator>Selenium12345</dc:creator>
    <dc:identifier/>
    <dc:identifier>ISBN 1-56389-668-0</dc:identifier>
    <dc:identifier/>
    <dc:date>2010</dc:date>
    <dc:publisher/>
    <dc:description/>
    <dcterms:alternative>Selenium Title</dcterms:alternative>
    <dc:title>door123</dc:title>
    </dc:record>]]></content>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <mid>1921</mid>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <subType>dc</subType>
    <!--Optional:-->
    <type>descriptive</type>
    </metadata>
    </dps:updateMD>
    </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>

    Additional Information

    The WS will overwrite the metadata with the value in content, so it is needed to include the existing metadata and add dc:rights to it.
