Manage Collection Metadata for my provider

Required Permissions

To create, update, or delete collection metadata records in the CMR, your username must be a member of a group with Provider Object Permissions which include Ingest Operations Read and Update.

See your provider Administrator if you are not sure whether your username has the correct permissions for these operations.   The provider Administrator should refer to the Manage 'Provider Object Permissions' for a user group section below to assign these permissions.

Create a collection record in the CMR for my provider

1. On the 'Manage Collections' dashboard,

 click on 'Create New Record'.  A draft collection record will be created.   


2. Begin filling in metadata fields for your draft collection record.  Use the information icons (blue 'i') to get information about what fields mean and how to format their values.


 

3. Navigate from form to form using the Previous or Next buttons, or by choosing the next form to edit from the pull-down list at 'Save & Jump To:'.    You may work on forms in any order.  When you move from one form to another, your input from the previous form will be saved in your draft record.


4. Explicitly Save form input (within a session or at the end of a session) with the 'Save' button; Finish editing your draft record using the 'Done' button.  

NOTE:  When you are working with a draft collection record, all 'Save' and 'Done' operations update the draft record in the MMT database, not in the CMR.  Your draft collection record will not be ingested into the CMR until you click on the 'Publish Draft' button in step 8 below.

5. Follow progress of your draft record on the progress panel:

The icons on the progress panel have the following meanings:

6. View an HTML rendering of your collection record on the 'preview panel':


7.  Special NOTES when creating or editing a collection level record:

a. To have the NRT (Near Real Time) badge appear for the collection on the Earthdata Search Client, set Collection Type to 'Near Real Time' on the 'Data Information' form.

b.  On the 'Temporal Extent' form, Ends at Present should be set to False if there is an end date for the collection.

c.  NASA data centers are strongly encouraged to provide DOI information for the Collection on the 'Collection Information' form.

8.  When all required fields are complete with no validation errors (red icon) showing on the progress panel, you are ready to publish your draft record to the CMR.  Click on the 'Publish Draft' button above the progress panel on the draft record page:


9.   You will then see a green banner indicating that your collection record has been successfully published to the CMR.   You will also receive an email stating that your record has been published, and providing the 'concept id' (CMR identifier) for the published record.   You may use that concept id to search for your record on the MMT or on the Earthdata Search Client.

Find and view collection records in the CMR

Use the 'Search Collections ' interface in the upper right corner of the MMT banner on the Manage Collections dashboard:


Find records based on a keyword

Enter a search term (e.g., Short Name, Entry Title, a CMR concept id, a science keyword) in the white 'Enter Search Term' box, and click on 'Search Collections'.  A table of CMR collection records which match the search term will be presented (sorted by Entry Title).


To view an html representation of the metadata for any collection record in the search results table, click on the Short Name of the collection.

Bulk Update of Collection Metadata 

Overview 

  1. The MMT allows metadata providers to update multiple collection records for their provider at once, using Bulk Update functionality.
  2. When Bulk Update changes are applied to a collection record, the updated record is stored in the CMR in UMM-JSON format (which may or may not be the original native format of the record).
  3. When Bulk Update changes are applied to a collection record, a new revision of the record is stored in the CMR.   The Last Revision date of the record is updated in the collection metadata, and the update date of the record in the CMR database is also updated.   These updates occur for all records in the Bulk Update set, regardless of whether the update was actually applied to that record.
  4. Bulk Update changes are supported for five Collection metadata fields, all of which have controlled vocabularies managed in the KMS:  Science Keywords, Location Keywords, Platform, Instrument, and Data Center.   
    1. For the two hierarchical keyword fields (Science Keywords, Location Keywords),  four update types are supported:  Add to Existing, Clear All and Replace, Find and Remove, and Find and Replace. 
    2. For the other three metadata groups (Platform, Instrument, and Data Center), two update types are supported:  Find and Remove, and Find and Update.
  5. 'Add to Existing' adds a new occurrence of a Science or Location keyword value selected from the KMS to all records in the Bulk Update set.
  6. 'Clear All and Replace' removes all Science or Location keywords from all records in the Bulk Update set, and replaces them with a new Science or Location keyword selected from the KMS.
  7. 'Find & Remove'
    1. For Platforms: finds all records in the Bulk Update set that have a platform shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and removes all platform metadata for the platform instance where Platform shortname = <value keyed in by user>,  including the removal of all instruments and child instruments associated with the platform.  Any other platform instances in the records remain as-is.
    2. For Instruments: finds all records in the selected record set that have an instrument shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and removes all instrument metadata for each instrument instance where Instrument shortname = <value keyed in by user>.   If the Instrument is associated with multiple platforms in a single collection, the instrument metadata will be removed from each associated platform.  Any other Instrument instances in the records remain as-is.
    3. For Data Centers: finds all records in the selected record set that have a Data Center shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and removes all Data Center metadata for each Data Center instance where Data Center shortname = <value keyed in by user>.  Any other Data Center instances in the records remain as-is.
    4. For Science Keywords and Location Keywords: finds all records in the Bulk Update set that have a Science or Location Keyword value of <value keyed in by user>, and removes that keyword value from each record.
  8. 'Find & Replace'
    1. For Science Keywords and Location Keywords: finds all records in the Bulk Update set that have a Science or Location Keyword value of <value keyed in by user>, removes that keyword value from each record, and replaces it with a new Science or Location keyword selected from the KMS.
    2. If the user enters blank > b > c > d >e for the 'Find Values to Replace', all Science/Location keywords with * > b > c > d > e will be replaced by the new Science/Location Keyword.
      If the user enters a > b> c> d >e for the 'Find Values to Replace' , all Science/Location keywords with a>b>c>d>e will be replaced, but a>b>c>d will not be replaced.

      If the user enters a>b>c for the 'Find Values to Replace', all Science/Location keywords with a>b>c or a>b>c>* will be replaced
  9. 'Find & Update'
    1. For Platforms: finds all records in the Bulk Update set that have a platform shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and replaces the Shortname for that platform instance with a Shortname selected from the KMS.  The platform Longname and Platform Type will also be replaced with the associated Longname and Platform Type from the KMS.
    2. For Instruments: finds all records in the selected record set that have an instrument shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and replaces the Shortname for that instrument instance with a Shortname selected from the KMS.  The instrument Longname will also be replaced with the associated Longname from the KMS.
    3. For Data Centers: finds all records in the selected record set that have an Data Center shortname of <value keyed in by user>, and replaces the Shortname for that Data Center instance with a Shortname selected from the KMS.  The Data Center Longname and Home Page URL will also be replaced with the associated Longname and Home Page URL from the KMS.


Initiate a Bulk Update operation, and select the records to update

  1. On the Manage Collections dashboard, in the Bulk Updates panel on the right, click on 'Initiate a Bulk Update'.
     
  2. Search for the records you would like to update by choosing a Search Field and Search Term. 

     
  3. Note that some Search Fields support wildcard searching.
  4. Use the '+' to further filter your search results by entering additional Search Field / Search Term combinations.    All search criteria entered will be ANDed together.
  5. Use the '-' to remove search criteria.
  6. When you have entered all of your collection search criteria, click on 'Submit' to find the records for the bulk update.
  7. A list of collections that satisfy your search criteria will be returned.   Click on the checkbox beside each collection you want to select for bulk update, or click on the checkbox at the top of the table to choose all collections in the table.


 

Select 'Field to Update' and 'Update Type'

After selecting your records to bulk update, add a unique name for the bulk update, select the Field to Update from the drop down list, and then select the Update Type from the drop down list.   The choices for Update Type will depend upon the Field to Update that you selected.

Bulk Update changes are supported for five Collection metadata fields, all of which have controlled vocabularies managed in the KMS:  Science Keywords, Location Keywords, Platform, Instrument, and Data Center.

For the two hierarchical keyword fields (Science Keywords, Location Keywords),  four update types are supported:  Add to Existing, Clear All and Replace, Find and Remove, and Find and Replace.

For the other three metadata groups (Platform, Instrument, and Data Center), two update types are supported:  Find and Remove, and Find and Update.


Enter the current value of the Field to Update (for 'Find & ...' Update Types), and select the new value from the controlled vocabulary (for Find & Replace, Find & Update, Add to Existing, Clear All & Replace).

  1. For update types of Find & Remove, Find & Update, and Find & Replace, enter the current (incorrect) value that you want to remove/update/replace.   For example:

or

The MMT will display the results of your bulk update operation on a status page.   You may have to refresh the page until the Status of the operation is Complete.

The status of each collection in the bulk update operation will be shown in a table at the bottom of the page.

NOTES: 

a.  If the Find value was not present in a collection record in the operation, no bulk update will occur, but the collection status will be COMPLETE.

b.  For each COMPLETE record in the Bulk Update operation (regardless of whether the record was actually updated), a new revision of the record will be created in the CMR, the Last Update date of the record will be updated in the collection metadata, and the Last Update date in the CMR database will also be updated.


 


View previous Bulk Update operations

  1. On the Manage Collections dashboard, in the Bulk Updates panel on the right, there is a list of previous Bulk Update operations for your provider, each with a numeric identifier.
  2. Click on the highlighted Bulk Update summary (e.g., 'Add to Existing Science Keywords') to see the status page for that Bulk Update operation.

   

3. If there are more Bulk Update operations than will fit on this panel, click on the 'More' link to see a table of all Bulk Updates for your provider.

NOTE:  The CMR removes Bulk Update operations from its database after 90 days.

To create, update, or delete service metadata records in the CMR, or to associate / disassociate services with collections,  your login user id must be a member of a group with Provider Object Permissions which include Ingest Operations Read and Update.

See your provider Administrator if you are not sure whether your user id has the correct permissions for these operations.   The provider Administrator should refer to the "Manage 'Provider Object Permissions' for a user group" section below to assign these permissions.

Create a service record in the CMR for my provider

1. On the 'Manage Services' dashboard,

 

click on 'Create New Record'.  A draft service record will be created.   

2. Begin filling in metadata fields for your draft service record.  Use the information icons (blue 'i') to get information about what fields mean and how to format their values.

3. Navigate from form to form using the Previous or Next buttons, or by choosing the next form to edit from the pull-down list at 'Save & Jump To:'.    You may work on forms in any order.  When you move from one form to another, your input from the previous form will be saved in your draft record.


4. Explicitly Save form input (within a session or at the end of a session) with the 'Save' button; Finish editing your draft record using the 'Done' button.  

NOTE:  When you are working with a draft service record, all 'Save' and 'Done' operations update the draft record in the MMT database, not in the CMR, i.e., DRAFT records are not stored in the CMR.   Your draft service record will not be ingested into the CMR until you click on the 'Publish Service Draft' button in step 7 below.

5. Follow progress of your draft record on the progress panel:

The icons on the progress panel have the following meanings:

6. View a HTML rendering of your service record on the 'preview panel':


7. When all Required fields are complete with no validation errors (red icon) showing on the progress panel, you are ready to Publish your record to the CMR.

Click on the 'Publish Service Draft' button above the Progress Panel on the draft record page:

8.   You will see a green banner indicating that your service record has been successfully published to the CMR.   You will also receive an email stating that your record has been published, and providing the 'concept id' (CMR identifier) for the published record.   You may use that concept id to search for your record on the MMT.

Find and view service records in the CMR

Use the 'Search Services ' interface in the upper right corner of the MMT banner:

Find records based on a keyword

Enter a search term (e.g., Short Name, Entry Title, a CMR concept id, a service keyword).

in the white 'Enter Search Term' box, and click on 'Search Services'.

A table of CMR service records which match the search term will be presented (sorted by Name).


To view an html representation of the metadata for any service in the search results table, click on the Name of the service.

Find all service records for a provider

Select a provider from the 'Select a Provider' drop-down list, and then click on 'Search Services'.

A table of all CMR service records for the selected provider will be presented (sorted by Name).

To view an html representation of the metadata for any service record in the search results table, click on the Name of the service in the search results table.

Update a service record in the CMR for my provider

  2. At the top of the service display page, click on 'Edit Service Record'

3. A new draft of this record will be created in the MMT database.   The MMT will display the progress panel (and html representation) for the draft record.

 


4.  On the progress panel, click on any section to begin editing the draft record.   Use the progress panel and navigation buttons described above (Create a service record in the CMR for my provider) to update the metadata in the draft record. 

5. When you have finished editing the draft record, publish it to the CMR by clicking on the 'Publish Service Draft' button above the progress panel.   This will create a new revision of the service record in the CMR.   The CMR stores up to 10 revisions of each service record.  When an 11th revision is created, the first revision is deleted, and so on.   Each revision of a service record has the same concept id as the original service record.

1. Find the service record using the instructions above (Find and View Service in the CMR), and click on the Name of the service to view the service page.

2. At the top of the service page, click on 'Clone Service Record'

 

3. A draft of a clone of this record will be created in the MMT database.   The MMT will display the progress panel (and html representation) for the draft record (the clone). 

Since service Names must be unique within a provider, the clone is initiated with a blank Name.   The Entry Title of the clone will be initialized  to '<entry title of the original record' - Cloned'.   You may edit the record to change the default entry title of the clone.

NOTE:   A prompt to enter a new Name and Long Name for the clone appears in the blue bar, and the progress panel indicates that the Name and Long Name have not yet been filled in.

4.  On the progress panel, click on any section to begin editing the draft record (the clone).  You must enter a new Name and Long Name for the clone.  Use the progress panel and navigation buttons described above (Create a service record in the CMR for my provider) to update the metadata in the draft record.

    Provider Object Permissions for the Administrator Group are as follows:

2.  Each provider may also establish Groups of registered users who will have Search and Order access to specified sets of your collections (this access is granted through Collection Permissions, described in the next section of this User's Guide).  (e.g., instrument team group with access to collections from that instrument)

Manage collection and granule permissions for my provider

Recommended set-up for a provider: 

  1. An 'All Collections' permission to be set-up by the OPS team, granting Search and Order permissions for All Collections for the provider to members of one or more 'privileged' groups, e.g., the Administrators group
  2. An 'All Granules' permission to be set-up by the OPS team, granting Search and Order permissions for All Collections for the provider to members of one or more 'privileged' groups, e.g., the Administrators group
  3. Permissions for only 'Selected Collections' - to be set up by the provider Administrator, granting search and order permissions for a specified set of provider collections and/or granules to members of a provider group.   Common examples are: 1) 'Public Collections' permissions which grant search and order permissions to a set of provider collections and/or granules to All Registered Users; and 2) <instrument> permissions which grant search and order permissions to collections from a specific instrument to a group of instrument scientists.

Define user permissions for a set of collections for my provider 

  1. On the 'Manage CMR' dashboard, under 'Permissions & Groups', click on 'Collection Permissions'

2.  On the Collection Permissions page, click on 'Create a Permission'.

3. Name your collection permission (it is recommended to choose a name descriptive of the type of permission and the type of collections to which the permission applies), and select whether the permission applies to collections, granules, or both.

 4.  Click on the 'Selected Collections' radio button, and assign collections to your permission.  

Choose specific collections to which the permission applies, by highlighting collection names on the left side of the collection 'chooser' and clicking on the '+' to add the collection to the permission.  You may use the SHIFT key to highlight multiple collections at one time.

To remove a collection from the permission, highlight the collection name on the right side of the chooser, and click on the '-' to remove it.   You may highlight more than one collection on the right and click on the trashcan icon to remove all highlighted collections from the permission.

5. OPTIONAL:  Further qualify the collections or granules in the permission by specifying only collections with Access Constraint values in their metadata within a specified range. (use the Access Constraints subform on the Data Identification form to enter these values in a collection record using the MMT).  Click on the 'Include Undefined' checkbox if you want to also include collections that have no value for Access Constraint.

6.  Assign the groups of users who have Search or Search and Order permissions for these collections.  (Search and Search and Order permissions apply when a user uses a client like Earthdata Search Client to search for a collection record and to order granules from that collection.)   When you position your cursor in the Search box or in the Search and Order box, you will see a pull-down list of existing groups for your provider.  The list will also include two standard 'system' groups:  All Guest Users, and All Registered Users.   (Registered Users are users who have an Earthdata Login account).   If you choose a group for Search, that group will not be available to choose for Search and Order, and vice versa. Click on a group name under Search to give users in that group Search privileges for the collections in this permission.   Click on a group name under Search and Order to give users in that group Search and Order privileges for the collections in this permission.   You may select multiple groups for Search and multiple groups for Search and Order.


NOTE:  One use case here is to allow All Registered Users or All Guest Users to search for and order granules in Version n+1 collections, but not allow those users to search for and order granules in Version n collections.   To do this, create a Collection Permission with Selected Collections, choose only your Version n+1 collections, and choose the All Guest Users or All Registered Users group appropriately.    Make sure that there is no permission that grants access to Version n collections to All Guest Users / All Registered Users.


7.  Click Submit to create your collection permission.

8. You will see a green banner indicating that your collection permission was created successfully, and you will also see a display page for your collection permission.
