UM transfer 1.2 Include checksums
Jump to navigation Jump to search
You can include checksums with your transfer if you have them. Archivematica will verify .md5, .sha1 and .sha256 checksums in the Verify checksums micro-service during the Transfer workflow in the dashboard.
- Place the digital objects into an /objects folder below the first level of the transfer.
- Place the metadata files in a /metadata folder at the same level as the /objects folder. Your checksums should be contained in text files named the following way: checksum.md5, checksum.sha1 or checksum.sha256.
- Begin your standard transfer in the Archivematica dashboard interface.
- If your checksum check fails, this micro-service will show an error. The micro-service line will turn red. The log for this is sent to the /logs folder of the transfer. The file in the log folder should look like "checksum.md5-Check-Tue Oct 14 13:56:51 PDT 2014"
