[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Status migration advice

Hi Harvard,

We definitely haven't forgotten about you.

Right now I just don't have enough time to sort this all out. Pretty much scrambling to work through this container management conversion work that's planned to be included in the next release.

But...we really need to gather up all the requirements here and spec this out. Some of the things that are being requested are actually contradictory.

Is there  a way we can maybe figure out how to capture the requirements in a place were everyone can  follow a common thread? Listservs are really hard to do this kind of thing effectively...

I could maybe post a summary of what I've hearing and seeing to get things kicked off...

best, Chris.

Hello everyone,

Apparently AS-76 is now AR-1426?  This still seems to be unresolved.   Harvard University continues to advocate for:

*         The restoration of processing status to collection management records

*         No reverse migration of data

*         Processing event records should stay

Greetings all,

Hopkins is working to address a legacy problem with our Processing Status in preparation for going live with ASpace. However, knowing that processing_status is in a state of flux given the discussions around AR-1426<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__archivesspace.atlassian.net_browse_AR-2D1426&d=CwMFAg&c=WO-RGvefibhHBZq3fL85hQ&r=QRZODf9XXD3bgxGHWgBXsAvw7uhg6gGfVUJ1KmSajT8&m=m2Uufu22sE3bSzHY8ICmFBbBB6TH3itiM_v5IRLUleg&s=njmu4GjXhNSoJpJt5M7ng0sbuSlrZlDs6ctHkS4YAAw&e=>, we're wondering whether it will make sense to update AT with our accurate processing_status before migrating, rather than through the API after migrating. I am asking because I see mention of a plugin being written to move this field back for institutions that want it (I hesitatingly believe we are one such institution), and am wondering where that plugin will be looking, and whether putting the updated process_status into AT will simply make this easier in the future. Any comments welcome.
