EPrints 3 Reference: Directory Structure - Metadata Fields - Repository Configuration - XML Config Files - XML Export Format - EPrints data structure - Core API - Data Objects

Back to cfg.d defines all the optional fields which an Document object has. These fields all have mappings to the database. There are a variety of field types which you can see here here.

Note removing fields from does not usually cause data to be deleted from the database. To add or remove fields from you must run:

EPRINTS_PATH/bin/epadmin update_database_structure ARCHIVEID

and then reload your configuration (or restart the webserver).

Field Definition

The field list is represented by an arrayref of hashrefs. Each hashref has at minimum a name, which is the field name used when referring to the field (e.g. in search) and a type, which describes the type of data the field will hold. Depending on a field's type there may also be other compulsory fields and some optional ones. See the details of field definition on the page for that type.
