Hello Nathan,

We are about to imminently embark on a migration from AT to AS v1.1.0. We are interested in the ‘refid_unique’ option under your item #3, to enable all our AT migrated Resource Components refids to be assigned in the newer AS format. You mention in your post that “if you are using the refid plug-in, then use this option”.

My question is, if we are not using the refid plug-in can we use this option?
Conversely, do we need to add this refid plug-in to use this ‘refid_unique’ option during migration?
In terms of the plug-in, are you referring to the refid_rules plugin<https://github.com/hudmol/archivesspace/tree/master/plugins/refid_rules> on the hudmol github site?

Thanks for any clarification that you can pass along.

You can download the latest release of the AT migration plugin from the Github site.

This release is:

1. Designed to work with both v1.0.9 and v1.1.0 of ASpace

2. Fixes bug in which Windows file URIs in External Documents were not being migrated properly.

3. Supports options for specifying how Resource Components refids are transferred. valid options are:

-refid_original --  Copy the original refid from the AT.

-refid_unique --  Copy the the original refid and adds a String to make them unique (refid_abc).  This is the default option since a few Resource records may have duplicate refids for resource components and will fail to copy.

-refid_none --  Do not copy any refid, instead allow ArchivesSpace to assign one.  If you are using the refid plug-in, then use this option.
