Element

Definition and Options (if available)

webui.browse.index.{<n>

n is the index number. The index numbers must start from 1 and increment continuously by 1 thereafter. Deviation from this will cause an error during install or a configuration update. So anytime you add a new browse index, remember to increase the number. (Commented out index numbers may be used over again).

<index name>

The name by which the index will be identified. You will need to update your Messages.properties file to match this field. (The form used in the Messages.properties file is: browse.type.metadata.<index name> .

<metadata>

Only two options are available: "metadata" or "item"

<schema prefix>

The schema used for the field to be index. The default is dc (for Dublin Core).

<element>

The schema element. In Dublin Core, for example, the author element is referred to as "Contributor". The user should consult the default Dublin Core Metadata Registry table in Appendix A.

<qualifier>

This is the qualifier to the <element> component. The user has two choices: an asterisk "" or a proper qualifier of the element. The asterisk is a wildcard and causes DSpace to index all types of the schema element. For example, if you have the element "contributor" and the qualifier "" then you would index all contributor data regardless of the qualifier. Another example, you have the element "subject" and the qualifier "lcsh" would cause the indexing of only those fields that have the qualifier "lcsh". (This means you would only index Library of Congress Subject Headings and not all data elements that are subjects.

<datatype field>

This refers to the datatype of the field:
date the index type will be treated as a date object
title the index type will be treated like a title, which will include a link to the item page
text the index type will be treated as plain text. If single mode is specified then this will link to the full mode list

<index display>

Choose full or single. This refers to the way that the index will be displayed in the browse listing. "Full" will be the full item list as specified by webui.itemlist.columns ; "single" will be a single list of only the indexed term.

...

Property:

webui.itemdisplay.default

Example Value:

Code Block
webui.itemdisplay.default = dc.title, dc.title.alternative, \
           dc.contributor.*, dc.subject, dc.data.issued(date), \
           dc.publisher, dc.identifier.citation, \
           dc.relation.ispartofseries, dc.description.abstract, \
           dc.description, dc.identifier.govdoc, \
           dc.identifier.uri(link), dc.identifier.isbn, \
           dc.identifier.issn, dc.identifier.ismn, dc.identifier

Informational Note:

This is used to customize the DC metadata fields that display in the item display (the brief display) when pulling up a record. The format is: <schema>.<element>.<_optional_qualifier> . In place of the qualifier, one can use the wildcard "*" to include all fields of the same element, or, leave it blank for unqualified elements. Additionally, two additional options are available for behavior/rendering: (date) and (link). See the following examples:

dc.title = Dublin Core element 'title' (unqualified)
dc.title.alternative = DC element 'title', qualifier 'alternative'
dc.title.* = All fields with Dublin Core element 'title' (any or no qualifier)
dc.identifier.uri(link) = DC identifier.uri, rendered as a link
dc.date.issued(date) = DC date.issued, rendered as a date
The Messages.properties file controls how the fields defined above will display to the user. If the field is missing from the _Messages.properties_ file, it will not be displayed. Look in Messages.properties}}under {{metadata.dc.<field>. Example:
metadata.dc.contributor.other = Authors
metadata.dc.contributor.author = Authors
metadata.dc.title.* = Title
Please note: The order in which you place the values to the property key control the order in which they will display to the user on the outside world. (See the Example Value above).

Property:

Code Block
webui.resolver.1.urn
webui.resolver.1.baseurl
webui.resolver.2.urn
webui.resolver.2.baseurl

Example Value:

Code Block
webui.resolver.1.urn = doi
webui.resolver.1.baseurl = http://dx.doi.org/
webui.resolver.2.urn = hdl
webui.resolver.2.baseurl = http://hdl.handle.net/

Informational Note:

When using "resolver" in webui.itemdisplay to render identifiers as resolvable links, the base URL is take from <code>webui.resolver.<n>.baseurl<code> where <code>webui.resolver.<n>.baseurl<code> matches the urn specified in the metadata value. The value is appended to the "baseurl" as is, so the baseurl needs to end with the forward slash almost in any case. If no urn is specified in the value it will be displayed as simple text. For the doi and hdl urn defaults values are provided, respectively http://dc.doi.org and http://hdl.handle.net are used. If a metadata value with style "doi", "handle" or "resolver" matches a URL already, it is simply rendered as a link with no other manipulation.

Property:

plugin.single.org.dspace.app.webui.util.StyleSelection

Example Value:

Code Block
plugin.single.org.dspace.app.webui.util.StyleSelection = \
  org.dspace.app.web.util.CollectionStyleSelection
  #org.dspace.app.web.util.MetadataStyleSelection

Informational Note:

Specify which collections use which views by Handle.

Property:

Code Block
webui.itemdisplay.metadata-style
webui.itemdisplay.metadata-style

Example Value:

Code Block
webui.itemdisplay.metadata-style = schema.element[.qualifier|.*]
webui.itemdisplay.metadata-style = dc.type

Informational Note:

Specify which metadata to use as name of the style

Property:

webui.itemlist.columns

Example Value:

Code Block
webui.itemlist.columns = thumbnail, dc.date.issued(date), dc.title, \
          dc.contributor.*

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="unmigrated-wiki-markup" ac:schema-version="1" ac:macro-id="c263450b23eda430-7273353c-4f894152-b858806f-4f38ae59356e8f0ef8af3827"><ac:plain-text-body><![CDATA[

Informational Note:

Customize the DC fields to use in the item listing page. Elements will be displayed left to right in the order they are specified here. The form is <schema prefix>.<element>[.<qualifier> | .*][(date)], ...
]]></ac:plain-text-body></ac:structured-macro>
Although not a requirement, it would make sense to include among the listed fields at least the date and title fields as specified by the webui.browse.index configuration options in the next section mentioned. (cf.)
If you have enabled thumbnails (webui.browse.thumbnail.show), you must also include a 'thumbnail' entry in your columns‚ this is where the thumbnail will be displayed.

Property:

webui.itemlist.width

Example Value:

webui.itemlist.width = *, 130, 60%, 40%

Informational Note:

You can customize the width of each column with the following line--you can have numbers (pixels) or percentages. For the 'thumbnail' column, a setting of '*' will use the max width specified for browse thumbnails (cf. webui.browse.thumbnail.maxwidth, thumbnail.maxwidth)

Property:

Code Block
webui.itemlist.browse.<index name>.sort.<sort name>.columns
webui.itemlist.sort.<sort name>.columns
webui.itemlist.browse.<browse name>.columns
webui.itemlist.<sort or index name>.columns

Example Value:

_}}

Informational Note:

You can override the DC fields used on the listing page for a given browse index and/or sort option. As a sort option or index may be defined on a field that isn't normally included in the list, this allows you to display the fields that have been indexed/sorted on. There are a number of forms the configuration can take, and the order in which they are listed below is the priority in which they will be used (so a combination of an index name and sort name will take precedence over just the browse name).In the last case, a sort option name will always take precedence over a browse index name. Note also, that for any additional columns you list, you will need to ensure there is an itemlist.<field name> entry in the messages file.

Property:

webui.itemlist.dateaccessioned.columns

Example Value:

webui.itemlist.dateaccessioned.columns = thumbnail, dc.date.accessioned(date), dc.title, dc.contributor.*

Informational Note:

This would display the date of the accession in place of the issue date whenever the dateaccessioned browsed index or sort option is selected. Just like webui.itemlist.columns, you will need to include a 'thumbnail' entry to display the thumbnails in the item list.

Property:

webui.itemlist.dateaccessioned.widths

Example Value:

webui.itemlist.dateaccessioned.widths = *, 130, 60%, 40%

Informational Note:

As in the aforementioned property key, you can customize the width of the columns for each configured column list, substituting '.widths' for '.columns' in the property name. See the setting for webui.itemlist.widths for more information.

Property:

webui.itemlist.tablewidth

Example Value:

webui.itemlist.tablewidth = 100%

Informational Note:

You can also set the overall size of the item list table with the following setting. It can lead to faster table rendering when used with the column widths above, but not generally recommended.

Property:

webui.session.invalidate

Example Value:

webui.session.invalidate = true

Property:

solr.resolver.timeout

Example Value:

solr.resolver.timeout = 200

Informational Note:

Timeout for the resolver in the DNS lookup time in milliseconds, defaults to 200 for backward compatibility; your system's default is usually set in /etc/resolv.conf and varies between 2 to 5 seconds, too high a value might result in solr exhausting your connection pool.
