This workflow plugin allows a mass upload of files with automatic allocation to the correct Goobi processes either on the basis of the file names or by means of the analysed barcodes.
This workflow plugin allows mass uploading of files that are to be automatically assigned to the correct processes by Goobi workflow. The plugin provides its own interface for this purpose, which either allows you to upload files directly via the web interface or, alternatively, can also read out images from the user directory. These images are checked by the plugin for their name in order to determine the associated Goobi process. If the process has been identified uniquely and the Goobi process identified is also in the configured workflow step, the images are assigned to this step and the workflow is processed further.
As well as assigning files on the basis of their file name, it is also possible to configure the system so that an image analysis is carried out instead, which reads barcodes. This makes it possible that images of several processes are named sequentially, for example, and only a separating sheet between the images needs to be included. All images after such a separator sheet with an identifiable barcode are assigned to the respective process until the next barcode in the file stack is determined.
To install the plugin, the following two files must be installed:
To configure how the plugin should behave, various values can be adjusted in the configuration file. The configuration file is usually located here:
The contents of this configuration file are as follows:
<!-- which file types shall be allowed for uploading these -->
<!-- name of the folder inside of a users home directory to use as alternative for web upload -->
<!-- define if instead of the file naming a barcode shall be analyzed to match the following images to the corresponding process until the next barcode
gets recognized -->
<!-- copy images using goobi script in the background (true or false) -->
<!-- which workflow step has to be open to allow the upload into the process -->
<!-- which part of the files shall be used to find the right process (prefix, suffix or complete) -->
To use this plugin, the user must have the correct role authorisation.
Without correct authorization the plugin cannot be used
Therefore please assign the role
Plugin_Goobi_Massuploadto the group.
Correctly assigned role for users
The configuration of the plugin is as follows:
If the plugin has been correctly installed and configured, it can be found within the menu item 'Workflow'.
Opened plugin for upload
At this point, files can either be uploaded or read from the user directory. Once the file names or images have been analysed, Goobi workflow shows the processes to which the imported images can be assigned.

Import files into processesthe images are now moved to the directories of the detected processes and the workflow is continued.
Please note: If barcodes are to be recognised in order to determine the processes from them, it is important that the barcodes are also available in sufficient size and quality for the recognition to be successful.
