How to organise data using namespaces

In this video we will demonstrate how you can use namespaces as a mechanism for organising data into defined groups. These groups can then be applied to datapools.

Once defined, that metadata can either be set on ingest or on an entity that already exists in the system.

If you haven’t already done so, you may find it helpful to watch the video demonstrating datapools.


Datapools explained and how they work

In this video, we will discuss datapools.

Datapools is a method for segmenting your data and/or files into sections that are separately addressable with access control. This means that your files can be accessed at a datapool level which will limit the amount of access users can have to your data/files.

Manual ingest

Part 1 of 3 for ingestion

In this video, we provide an overview of how a user would ingest small files into the Arkivum system using the manual ingest screen on the user interface (UI).

This ingest mechanism is recommended for ingesting files that are smaller than 100MB. You can also use this method to upload a single file or a collection of files.

To note, for a collection of files they must be compressed into a zip file.

Ingestion from a bucket

Part 2 of 3 for ingestion

In this video, we demonstrate how users upload data from an ingest bucket into the Arkivum solution.

This ingestion method can be used to upload a folder full of files which can have a nest of files inside of it, or it can be used to upload a single file.

A deeper look into the ‘Files to import’ screen is also shown.

Ingest approval

Part 3 of 3 for ingestion

In this video, we’ll show this process from the point of view of the user who requires approval for their ingests, as well as from the point of view from the ingest approver’s group who need to approve or reject any incoming requests.

Search and edit metadata

Searching and editing metadata on the dashboard

In this video, we will demonstrate searching for and editing metadata on the Arkivum dashboard. We will also explore namespaces on the dashboard along with the fields in the search screen, edit and value and search via a value.

If you haven’t already, then you ay find the namespaces video helpful to watch.


How to delete data from the Arkivum system

In this video, we’ll show how users can delete data from the Arkivum system using two scenarios:

  • The process for a user who needs to request a deletion to happen.
  • The process for the user who approves this deletion request.

This demonstration also delves into deletion reports and approval processes.


How to export data from the system

In this video, we will demonstrate how to export files from the Arkivum dashboard.
