[Archivesspace_Users_Group] digital object import troubleshooting

Hi all,

I’m trying out the digital object import spreadsheet and while I had it work successfully before with one collection, I’m getting error messages now with a different collection and wondering if someone could help me troubleshoot.

I’m trying to attach a digital object to folder-level record (is this possible with the spreadsheet import)? I’ve put in the record’s aspace ID as I see it in the resource record, but I keep getting this message: Cannot find archival object   with Ref ID  aspace_984xxxx etc etc

I have tried using the EADID, the Collection-level ID, and the folder-level ID in the spreadsheet, but this keeps happening.

What might I be doing wrong? Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Error when trying to import XML file

Hi all,

I was trying to import a bunch of collection data via an MarcXMLfile and got the following error message:


The following errors were found:
dates_of_existence/0/expression : is required unless a begin or end date is given
dates_of_existence/0/begin : is required unless an expression or an end date is given
dates_of_existence/0/end : is required unless an expression or a begin date is given

 For JSONModel(:agent_person):
 #<JSONModel(:agent_person) {"jsonmodel_type"=>"agent_person", "agent_contacts"=>[], "linked_agent_roles"=>[], "external_documents"=>[], "notes"=>[], "used_within_repositories"=>[], "used_within_published_repositories"=>[], "dates_of_existence"=>[{"jsonmodel_type"=>"date", "date_type"=>"single", "label"=>"existence"}], "is_slug_auto"=>true, "names"=>[{"jsonmodel_type"=>"name_person", "use_dates"=>[], "authorized"=>false, "is_display_name"=>false, "sort_name_auto_generate"=>true, "name_order"=>"inverted", "primary_name"=>"Magalhães", "rest_of_name"=>"Fernão de", "dates"=>"-1521", "source"=>"lcsh"}], "related_agents"=>[], "uri"=>"/agents/people/import_16b1f035-4fb0-46f7-af70-989cadc56c27", "publish"=>true}>


I had previously tested this with a cut down version of the same data that imported just fine, so I'm not sure what exactly the issue is or what I need to do to fix this so the file will import correctly. Any suggestions?
