Known Issues & Other Notes

  • Until the Library Manager module is migrated off of Oracle Forms, new InPort users must be created in both the Library Manager and the CAM administration interface.
  • Reports accessed from within Forms will require re-entering username and password, for the first time in a session.
  • The Hierarchy with Details Report has been removed until further notice due to critical performance and stability issues.
  • NMFS Data Categories have been temporarily removed until an updated version has been finalized by NMFS.
  • Due to the change in use for Oracle schemas, only Librarians and System Admins will be able to use the Table / Column Loader in Oracle Forms with their existing accounts. Other users needing to use the Table / Column Loader must be granted a special role, provided upon request.
  • Although lineage has been implemented in InPort as of this release, it is not yet supported within the FGDC Uploader module. Currently, if an FGDC file is uploaded to InPort which contains a lineage section, it will be preserved and emitted as is in InPort's FGDC export. It will also be used as the basis for InPort's ISO 19115 export. If InPort's native lineage data has been populated, the original FGDC lineage data will be preferred in usage over InPort's. This will continue until lineage processing has been implemented in the FGDC uploader module.
