The newly established DSpace Development Fund supports the development of new features prioritized by DSpace Governance. For a list of planned features see the fund wiki page.
|Title (Goal)||Admin UI - manage controlled vocabularies|
|Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)||Admin wants to be able to add and edit controlled vocabularies via the Admin UI.|
For this use case, we may need to eventually tease apart which "controlled vocabularies" are referred to (and likely it may be multiple). But, to clarify, there are currently two types of "controlled vocabularies" in DSpace:
I just wanted to note these two types of "controlled vocabularies", as they are different in terms of complexity – #1 seems much less complex to implement than #2, but I can see a need for both eventually in DSpace.

Under this umbrella could be listed also the need to manage local authorities or local cache of external authorities. For instance the list of projects/grants, organisations, laboratories or instrumentations used to produce a dataset, etc.
Manage here mean that the user should be able to search these authorities to link items to them and manipulate at the appropriate extends (edit, add, remove) the vocabulary terms. This can be currently done in DSpace-CRIS using the DynamicObject that allow the administrator to define new entities from the UI with proper attributes and relationships with other system and custom entities
