Comet: Sprint 15 (July 6, 2022 - July 19, 2022)

Comet Sprint 15 Review

What was the goal of Sprint 15?

  • Adding/editing descriptive and other user defined metadata
  • Running workflow and event triggered work (characterization)
  • Assigning permanent identifiers (ARKs)
  • Publishing to a public access platform (OAI, IIIF, Shoreline)

What is the milestone that this sprint is supporting?
To have a robust publish lifecycle from Comet into the OAI PMH endpoint

Accomplishments of Sprint 15:

  • Configurable metadata
    • Previously shipped a basic dummy metadata file but the files and content were fake. A change was made so that Comet now generates the M3 metadata schema (Houndstooth). Each campus will maintain their own config file
  • Access controls
    • If an object is made “public”, it will display as Public
  • Triggered background processes
    • File characterization is now working; can see characterization data generated by FITS
  • Add an object to a collection
    • Can add an object to a collection and see it on the collection’s page

Did we do everything we set out to accomplish?
No, but this work has been started:

  • Close on the derivative creation process
  • In the next Sprint, the team will be able to demo content in the IIIF image server from a general standpoint. The end goal is to provide a set of web services for manipulating images, and the hope is that the IIIF service will be an integration point for the exhibits platform
  • ARK minting (via EZID) triggered by a default workflow step
  • Behind the scenes work on the metadata API and the OAI platform to complete the integration

What’s next?
Continued focused work on the full deposit lifecycle
