To use this plugin, the user must have the correct role authorisation. Therefore, please assign the role Plugin_administration_ruleset_compatibility to the user group.

Wenn das Plugin korrekt installiert und konfiguriert wurde, ist es innerhalb des Menüpunkts Administration zu finden. Nach dem Betreten können in der Oberfläche die oben beschriebenen Parameter noch einmal individuell angepasst werden.

After clicking on the button Execute plugin the check of the METS files starts. A progress bar informs about the progress. The processes already processed are listed within the table. Any incompatibilities are immediately displayed. In addition, it is possible to directly enter the metadata editor of individual processes.
