Moving Items via Web UI
It is possible for administrators to move items one at a time using either the JSPUI or the XMLUI. When editing an item, on the 'Edit item' screen select the 'Move Item' option. To move the item, select the new collection for the item to appear in. When the item is moved, it will take its authorizations (who can READ / WRITE it) with it.
If you wish for the item to take on the default authorizations of the destination collection, tick the 'Inherit default policies of destination collection' checkbox. This is useful if you are moving an item from a private collection to a public collection, or from a public collection to a private collection.
- Note: When selecting the 'Inherit default policies of destination collection' option, ensure that this will not override system-managed authorizations such as those imposed by the embargo system.
Moving Items via the Batch Metadata Editor
Items may also be moved in bulk by using the CSV batch metadata editor (see Editing Collection Membership section under Batch Metadata Editing).
