Call for Feedback on History Reports

The InPort Steering group is currently in discussion on ways to revamp and improve Catalog Item History and User History reports in InPort. We would greatly appreciate feedback from the user community on how to improve these features. Please contact us to share your thoughts!

Notification of Deprecation - Custom ISO 19115 Upload

The custom ISO 19115 upload feature has been deprecated, and will be removed in a future release. This feature allows a user to supply their own custom file as the ISO 19115-2 export for an InPort metadata record in InPort, rather than relying on the automatically-generated export.

This was originally implemented as a provisional feature, when InPort did not natively support all of the sections and fields in ISO commonly used across NMFS and NOS. As all of these elements have been implemented in InPort since then (and have been available for many years), this feature should no longer be needed to ensure metadata completeness in ISO 19115.

Our metrics suggest that this feature is not being actively used, but if you have been considering it for the future, or if you have legacy records that still need to transition off this feature, please contact us so we can provide further assistance.
