[Archivesspace_Users_Group] AT Migration problem with repository processing note

I have a script that sort of does what Maureen suggests.  Was going to mention it earlier, but it's a bit undercooked....


It can read a two-column spreadsheet (as TSV) and batch add Repository Processing notes to archival objects via the API based on ref_ID values in the spreadsheet:  

The example above is a modified version of a script that folks at the Bentley wrote:

The comments in the script should help you figure out what you might need to modify.  For full disclosure, I'm a Python noob, so this is probably terribly written, but I can confirm that it works for my use case.

Hey Christie,

Doing it now, we would probably write a script to do an update using the API (better built-in validation, fewer opportunities to do something stupid). During the migration, there's a choice to keep or re-assign refids - you're definitely going to want to keep those to help match up the components. 

It's worth noting that we made those SQL updates because of mistakes in the migrator. I'm interested to know if those ever got fixed.
