Confluence Retirement

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is scheduled for retirement on January 27th, 2023. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Improvements

  • File upload date needs to be a date rather than a string
  • Need ability to identify if a user has permissions to edit projects in Depth. This is dependent on JSON from Science Base.

Stories

  • As a data steward I can view the status of my collections
  • Enhance process for multi-file upload/multi-item creation to include FGDC CSDGM scraper
  • I need to determine whether a user account exists in SB directory
  • Collection type (browse category) records should show up higher in search results than non-collection items

Tasks

  • Put XML files on a WAF so I can run a WAF process to import them
  • No labels
