At times it may be useful for you to move a large number of deposits from "User Workarea" to "Live Archive". While you could do this manually using the Web interface one-by-one, this could be a very time-consuming process.

The following plug in allows you to do this from the command line. Otherwise, execute the following update command in MySQL:

UPDATE eprint SET eprint_status="archive" WHERE userid=3 AND eprint_status="inbox"

or

UPDATE eprint SET eprint_status="archive" WHERE eprintid < 101

depending on the criteria that identifies the deposits you want to change.

Then you will need to run generate_abstracts in order for the deposited items to have an abstract page:

/opt/eprints3/bin/generate_abstracts <archive_id>

Now your items should be available from the repository.
