Setup Metadata Tagging Templates
DNA Evolution allows per archive tagging templates. This allows administrators to setup tagging for users that can be enforced at archive time. To setup tagging for a particular archive, follow these steps:
- Locate the sample tagging template file in Administrator Dropbox -> Metadata Files -> _SAMPLE -> meta-data.xml (see screenshot).
- Alternatively, you can connect to the share over the network (See section: Network Connecting to the DNA Server Administrator Dropbox).
NOTE: YOU CANNOT PERFORM THIS OPERATION OVER A NETWORK MOUNT TO A WINDOWS MACHINE. (This is only supported from a Mac.)
Copy the sample template file into the archive folder that you wish to setup tagging for. The folder can be found in the AdminDropbox->Meta Data Files-><Your Archive Name>.
- Alternatively, you can login to the DNA controller and perform this over Terminal. The administrator dropbox is located in /sdna_fs.
- Once you have copied the sample file, you can edit its contents to your needs. Currently DNA Evolution supports the following types of metadata fields:
- Free Text, Dropdown
- Optional, Mandatory
Tip: You can specify unlimited key value metadata pairs.
