  • OpenAtlas: Alexander Watzinger
  • HIPHILS: Thomas Preuß


  • Public protocol ok? -> Yes


  • Questions about links between actors -> event
  • Questions about links between location -> event
    There are problems with CIDOC link checks. Links that should be valid are shown as invalid and prevent updating e.g. actors
    The source of these problems may be an inconsistent database, manual code adaptions, different software/database version or similar. We discussed approaches to narrow down the source of these problems.
  • How to update OpenAtlas (currently 6.4.0) -> the update process was explained in more detail, e.g. the importance of running all database upgrade SQLs and executing them in the correct order.
  • A question about how to enter inventory numbers could be solved with showing how to use reference systems
  • A request for user interface adaptions (e.g. hiding specific fields) couldn't be helped with because this tool isn't like a CMS. If code changes are made on their own it was advised to use CSS adaptions which isn't too intrusive.
