Description

All "delete" actions in Metacat leave science metadata and data completely intact but DataONE wants there to be a way to actually remove them for good

History

#1 Updated by Ben Leinfelder over 9 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed

Now we actually remove the file from the file system.
We keep it in the DB so that the ID can never ever be used again, however.

#2 Updated by Ben Leinfelder over 9 years ago

Added additional switch so that there is no xml_documents_revisions or xml_node_revisions saved for a 'delete' action. This means Metacat has no knowledge of the document. DataONE still has the SystemMetadata, however. I'm not sure this is the safest course, but we will see.
