Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. 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 Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Comment: Updated program name from CSAS&L to SAS


  1. Click on one of the other 'purple' buttons under Preview, Save, or Download (e.g., Quick Save, Save and Preview Formatted) and look for a system response to your click (e.g., 'Document Saved!' popup; display of a formatted metadata record). If nothing appears in response to your click, this means that your logged in OME session has terminated, and you are no longer connected to the OME server; as a result, OME doesn't know that you are trying to Download Metadata Package. Return to the OME login page, login again, open your record, and then attempt to Download Metadata Package; validation will commence, and, if successful, your metadata zip file will download.
  2. The Metadata Parser (MP) service, which OME connects to in order to perform the validation and generate your metadata zip file, may be down. If you have eliminated #1 as a cause of Download Metadata Package failure, please submit a ticket to the OME Support Desk. MP is managed outside of the CSASL programScience Analytics and Synthesis (SAS) program, but we will work with the owner of the tool to restore OME's access to the service as quickly as possible.
