This wiki page describes requirements for gathering fixity check information from the | Fixity app and reporting through the Archivematica Storage Service.


  • Modify Storage Service to record time and results of fixity checks by adding columns to packages tab
  • Add script to send email alerts to administrator(s) when a fixity check fails


Storage Service packages tab

Two columns are added to the Storage Service packages tab:

  • Fixity Date, showing the date and time that the fixity check was run
  • Fixity Result, showing the outcome (Succeeded or Failed) with links to tool output in cases of failures or errors (successful fixity scan reports are empty)

Fixity Results: Failed

Failures should be reported as such if they are actual fixity failures, or if there were errors in the tool.
