#1708 defect dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed SOLR configuration lost

The SOLR url, user and password defined in the CKAN config file are ignored and the default SOLR url is used.

This causes:

  • "0 datasets" displayed on the home page
  • Dataset searches result in 0 results and a small message "There was an error while searching". (Nothing about it in the logs)

To reproduce

This bug is only visible if your SOLR instance is not at the default place. To quickly reproduce this problem, setup your machine as a SOLR multicore instance and run: "paster db clean && paster create-test-data && paster serve development.ini". It quits with the error: "solr.core.SolrException?: HTTP code=400, reason=Missing solr core name in path"

#1709 defect dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-01-23 closed fixed Simple_search fails with all packages

Also, simple_search configuration is not documented.

Also, no tests for sql search.

#1710 enhancement dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed 'Announce' email list for thedatahub

We want to make email announcements to users of thedatahub.org.

The most simple way to do this is to get a dump of the email addresses and subscribe/invite them to a mailman list.

Different ways to do it:

  • 'paster dump-users-csv' creates a CSV file. Apache serves up the directory using password protection. Is this secure enough?
  • CKAN admin pages provides a button to produce the CSV and download it. A config option may be necessary to enable this (disabled by default).

Something more advanced in the future could be:

  • CKAN tells mailman about new subscribers using the mailman web interface. Could be brittle.
  • Mailman doesn't have an Internet API, but it does have a python interface. So CKAN could tell mailman about new subscribers using a python proxy. There may be one out there, or maybe easy to do. But annoying to have to maintain another process running on machine.
  • CKAN sends out the emails itself. A sysadmin is given a form. Users have an opt in/out option in their account. But receiving emails is a sensitive thing so it would need to be right first time, and there are several risks to this approach.

#1711 enhancement icmurray icmurray ckan-sprint-2012-03-19 closed fixed Resource validation page
  • On the resources tab, there's a "Check Resources" button which, when clicked makes an ajax request with the list of URLs entered by the user.

  • The server checka each link for errors and header information about the linked resource. (Using ckanext/archiver/tasks.py:link_checker()).

  • The server returns a list of dicts (json), containing information about the linked resource, and the client uses that to:
  • populate the format field of each resource

The (guessed) 'file_extension' populates the 'format' field. If it's 'htm' or 'html', then we assume it's a listing page, and so don't populate the format field with 'htm' or 'html'.

  • provide feedback if a URL appears to be invalid

If the URL doesn't appear to be a URL at all, or returns a HTTP error, or times-out, then URL field is highlighted in red to indicate it's a bad URL. A tooltip shows the error message to the user.

  • [Optional] provide feedback if a URL appears to point to "Additional Information" - ie the Resource should be entered under "Additional Resources", rather than "Timeseries" or "Individual" datasets.

#1724 enhancement seanh seanh ckan-sprint-2012-02-20 closed fixed Update logic action functions for vocabularies

ckan/logic/action/get.py:tag_list() Currently (I think) just returns all tags in the CKAN instance that the user has access to. Needs an optional argument to get only tags from a particular vocabulary? When called with no argument, should only return free tags? Also add an optional dataset argument, so you can get tags for a given dataset and/or vocabulary?

ckan/logic/action/get.py:tag_autocomplete() Add optional argument to get only tags for a given vocab? When called with no argument, should get only free tags?

ckan/logic/action/get.py:tag_search() Again, optional arguments for restricting by vocabulary and/or dataset.

#1725 defect dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed Tag autocompletion and commas don't mix

If you use tag autocompletion, it automatically adds a comma after the tag. This is fine if you are going to add another tag, but not fine if it is the last one. If you don't manually remove the final comma than you get form validation error "Tag string: Tag "" length is less than minimum 2"

Affects only version 1.5.2a.

We need:

  • "current" column in harvest_object
  • "harvest_source_id" column in harvest_object, foreign key to harvest_source
  • "title" column in harvest_source

The extension should check on startup if the db needs updating and run the necessary scripts.

#1727 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2012-02-06 closed fixed Add "current" property to harvest objects

Right now is quite difficult to get the most current version of a package via the harvest objects, and the queries involved are prone to errors. A new "current" field will be added which will identify unequivocally the most recent harvested object. Unfortunately this will involve some major changes:

  • Model update (See #1726)
  • Update queries for getting harvest sources' datasets
  • Update ckanext-csw queries for getting the objects
  • Update inspire and ckan harvesters
  • Document new field

#1728 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2012-02-20 closed fixed Update UKLP harvesters

Three small changes:

  • Set Resource type to None instead of 'Undefined'
  • Set extra 'UKLP' = True instead of 'INSPIRE' = True

These two changes will require manual update of the database.

  • Allow datasets to be updated if the old source is inactive, even if the metadata date hasn't changed:
    if last_harvested_object.metadata_modified_date is None \
       or last_harvested_object.metadata_modified_date < self.obj.metadata_modified_date \
       or self.force_import \
       or last_harvested_object.metadata_modified_date == self.obj.metadata_modified_date and last_harvested_object.source.active is False:

#1731 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2012-03-19 closed fixed Publisher support for harvesting

Estimate: 4-5d

Only sysadmins can manage harvest sources right now, we need to allow publishers to handle their own sources.

We need to decide if there will be two different profiles on ckanext-harvest, the current one with only sysadmins allowed to manage the harvesting and a new one supporting publishers (ckan core can be configured to not use the publisher model)

Tasks include:

  • Auth checks on the different controller actions (and the command line interface?)
  • Modify the index page to just show sources the logged user has permissions on.

(Talk with Ross about the specific functions to use)

  • Create/edit form to show a dropdown with the user available publishers.

#1732 enhancement johnglover seanh ckan-v1.8 closed fixed Update CKAN's search for taxonomies

Initially we'll just add all tags from all vocabularies into the existing tags search facet (this should happen automatically). Later we want to enable templates to use separate search facets for different vocabularies.

Also need to make sure that search terms are matched against the texts of the tag names themselves (should happen already) and maybe also against the texts of the vocabulary names?

#1733 enhancement amercader amercader ckan-sprint-2012-02-20 closed fixed Delete (inactivate) harvest sources

Right now harvest sources can be inactivated (only via the cli), but we need to make sure:

  • Expose this on the web interface (only for sysadmins, see #1731)
  • Inactive sources are not shown in the web interface

Also for deleted packages:

a) Deleted packages get state="deleted" (not actually purged) so they are hidden on front end ACTION: need a button on the front end for "Delete" for sysamdins

Done in #1425. Not sure if the button is only shown to sysadmins.

b) No undelete: If you reharvest a deleted package, it remains deleted

  • Publisher should create a new record with new identifier and same/different content as applicable.
  • If publisher reharvests, a deleted document they get a error and are told to create new identifier for their updated.
  • You won't get the state where a package is updated in its deleted state
  • If they change the ID and reharvest, a new record appears on DGU.

c) Update CSW interface so that export doesn't export deleted packages d) Check geospatial search doesn't search deleted pacakges e) Check deleted packages don't appear in harvest source details, or in the counts or anywhere in the harvest interface or API.

We already have API calls for adding one tag or removing one tag at a time to/from a vocab. Want more convenient ways to add or remove many in one call, or just pass in a list of tags to completely replace a vocab's current list.

  • Add tags_create() function that calls the existing tag_create() many times?
  • Also tags_delete()?
  • Or just let tag_create() and tag_delete() accept a list?
  • Add tags argument to vocabulary_update() to pass in a list of tags to replace the vocab's current tags? (But it should still be possible to simply rename a vocab without changing its tags and without having to pass in the tag list.)

From Antonia Acuno, via Ira:

It appears that the current layout for the datahub does not work in IE7, which would mean a problem for us as most gov uses it and is one of those we have to support...any views?

Tested in several gov departments computers, so a common enough issue.


From Rufus: We haven't officially supported IE7 so far but can put engineering effort into this if absolutely needed. I note that IE 7 is now 3y out of date and is likely a security risk. Obviously this is something to ask Antonio about.

#1796 enhancement ross dread ckan-future closed fixed Get rid of lxml dependency

lxml is used in CKAN core in two places:

  • ckan/lib/helpers.py:239 Parsing Markdown and ensuring it is valid XML (i.e. tags close nicely so the HTML of the rest of the CKAN page is not disruptable).
  • reading the SOLR config XML to determine what version it is.

Both of these could be done with xml.dom built into Python and would save us a sizeable and slightly problematic dependency.

lxml is needed by these extensions: ckanext-inspire, ckanext-harvest, ckanext-csw & ckanext-wordpresser, so we'd have to add this to their requirements.

Main tasks:

  • Integrated seamlessly into CKAN (authorization etc)
  • Based off ElasticSearch?

Etherpad: http://ckan.okfnpad.org/webstore


  • New API point (config + controller) [0.75d]
    • /api/data/{resource-id}
  • Authorization [0.5d]
  • Documentation [0.25d]
  • Upgrade data viewer to use ES [0.5d]
  • Convert webstorer to new setup - http://github.com/okfn/ckanext-webstorer [1d] - #1753
    • See below
  • "Create DataStore? Resource" in Resource creation (??)
    • Just creates a resource with blank url and datastore enabled (webstore_url non null)
  • Tick box to enable DataStore? in Resource edit form (for time being would just set webstore_url to any non-null/non-empty value)
    • Also need to use this info in DataStore? extension?
  • Create nice instructions on Resource page about using the DataStore?
  • Rename webstore -> datastore
  • Deploy [0.5d]


Layout on ES


index = ckan-{ckan-id}
type-id = resource-id (1)

Request path

Req => Nginx => CKAN App (authz) => req to elasticsearch and returns results

See as an example: https://github.com/okfn/elastic-proxy


  1. How do we decide what to use in the viewer e.g. Webstore data versus DataProxy?
    • Check for existence of webstore_url on Resource (should really be webstore_enabled boolean or similar, however we stick with url for the time being because it exists and we avoid migration). If exists use Webstore o/w don't.
  2. How do we decide when webstore is activated
    • Ans: see previous.
  3. Do we (and how do we) allow for resources which are just for webstores
    • Ans: we have to set webstore_url = True ... on save. Or add a big button saying: "Create Blank Resource" ...
  4. How does webstorer work ...
    • CSV import - NS: make sure we add e.g. rownum or id = rownum ...
    • Separate mini-service (webstorer.thedatahub.org ...)
  5. How do we selectively disable recline where not appropriate (e.g. query support makes no sense for DataProxy?)
    • Ans: do not bother at present. Focus on Webstore route.
  6. Where does geodata support come in (in Recline or separately)
    • This is a separate issue

User Story 1

User -> CKAN instance -> Add Dataset -> Adds a Resource via uploading a CSV file -> Save

=> Result = New Dataset + Resource + Data API to resource and nice Preview of the data


  1. Allow normal upload process
  2. Webstorer queue task which should get triggered by new resource. Check the resource and if it can convert into the associated resource webstore database.
  3. Update the resource in some way (set webstore_url)

User Stories

User Story 2

User -> CKAN instance -> Add Dataset -> Adds a Resource via linking to some remote file (CSV or otherwise) or uploading some data (CSV or otherwise)

=> Result = New Dataset + Resource + nice Preview of the data (wherever possible)

User Story 3

User -> CKAN instance -> Add Dataset -> Adds a Resource which will be webstore database in CKAN -> User saves data to this data store.

=> Result = New Dataset + Resource (Webstore resource) which can now be written to or read from by the user

Solution: just create a resource with blank url (or better, have a new option to create webstore resource ...)

#1799 defect dread dread ckan-sprint-2012-03-05 closed fixed To login as a different user or register, you need to logout first

When you are logged in, you cannot login as a different user before first logging out. (This is a restricting in repoze.who, which gives priority to an existing recognised identity over another one you supply.)

Yet, the CKAN login form appears when you try to do something you're not allowed to, even if you are logged in already. You login with a different identity and nothing happens - you remain as the first identity - this is incorrect.

(It is also a little confusing to be sent to the log-in page, although we do have a flash message explaining, and you might want to relogin as a superuser if you can.)

Whilst in this area, it would be worth fixing the problem for developers where you are logged in, do "paster db clean" and then try to log in - AuthTkt? recognises your old cookie but the User object doesn't exist, so you get an error logging in. In this instance we should tell people to log-out.

#2204 enhancement ross rgrp ckan-sprint-2012-04-30 closed fixed [super] Related (Stuff) Extension

This is a reworking of the existing apps extension.

Initial proposal at http://wiki.ckan.org/Proposals#Apps_in_CKAN and http://wiki.ckan.org/Proposals#References.2FLinks_in_CKAN


What do we call this extension?

  • related
    • RP best IMO but perhaps too close to separate relationships concept?
  • relatedstuff
  • links
  • references


"Related Stuff": Apps as in an application (website/service/tool) that uses this dataset (as in Apps and Ideas extension)


New table named Related with following structure

|| id (int) || type || title || description (markdown) || image_url || owner_id || url || created (timestamp)
  • type = Idea | App | API | Visualization | Post | Paper | News Article
    • Suggest we make this a ckan.ini config option (comma separated ...?)
      • Do we want the possibility of different templates for different types of Related objects?
  • image: ?? Depends where we store images. Simplest option would be to change to image_url and leave it to users to have already uploaded an image somewhere. If not we need to support image uploading and storage. See #1692 (add image attribute to datasets and groups) for more discussion, once implemented the URL here can be an internal url.
  • owner_id = user_id or creating user (see authorization below)

Related2Dataset (note that related_id, dataset_id tuple should be unique). This allows for m2m connections. If a given related item is only with one dataset this could be simplified. May contain status so dataset owner can turn this on/off.

|| id || dataset_id || related_id || status

status should be used to allow for a dataset owner (for dataset_id) to de-activate the relationship between the dataset and the related.


  • /dataset/{dataset-name}/related/{related-item-id}/{related-item-title-stringified}
    • If a reference item could exist in its own right (and perhaps refer to multiple datasets then it should get its own url at e.g. /related/{id}
  • /dataset/{dataset-name}/related/add => Modal dialog on related tab so we can use API to create them.

/dataset/{id}/related <- list

  • use image_url for small icon etc, title description (shortened?)
  • Click through to full related item (optional)
  • dataset owner is shown show / hide button ... (or on /dataset/{id}/related/{id} )
  • related owner sees an edit button / icon (pops up modal)

/dataset/{id}/related/{id} (optional)

/dataset/{id} will have a Related tab (with bubble with count).

  • Drop down with Add Related -> Pop-up modal and save via API

(Not used: /related/add with dataset prefilled ... )



Addition of related item be considered orthogonal to datasets (and hence with separate authorization i.e. i can add the info that site X uses dataset Y without needing permission to edit dataset Y).

Thus any logged in user could add a Related item. We set the owner of the related item to creating user and going forward only that user or a sysadmin can update or delete.

NB: we could have a system where datasets owners have to approve related items before they show up next to their dataset. This would add substantial complexity so I propose we leave out of phase 1.
