Robot and gadget jobsCurrent script used to upload from DigitaltMuseum to Commons should be amended to also include this property.


DigitaltMuseum is, as the name implies, a digital museum website used by plenty of museums in both Norway and Sweden. This property would be used in Structured Commons to link back to DigitaltMuseum from the images that are uploaded there by especially Wikimedia Sverige and Wikimedia Norge efforts.

Might be better to use the UUID which I think can be considered stable, while the regular ID could change? We should check with KulturIT. Is it a problem that the relation is one-to-many, since lots of Digitalt museum IDs will be referenced by multiple Commons objects? Also, we can use for both Norwegian and Swedish links if that makes the syntax easier. Ambrosiani (talk) 08:41, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
@Ambrosiani: Are the UUIDs user-visible anywhere (without going through an API)? I wasn't able to find anything more specific than this one. Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 15:06, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
yes, they are visible right below the ID. URL works as well, see for example Ambrosiani (talk) 15:19, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
I sent an email to Espen at KulturIT about this, hopefully they will contribute to the discussion as well. Ambrosiani (talk) 15:20, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
@Ambrosiani: Great! I didn't notice the UUID there, I was too focused on the URL of the images. I'm neutral as to which one to choose, so if Espen has some input on which one is more stable that would be great. 😊 Jon Harald Søby (WMNO) (talk) 07:39, 17 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Reply from KulturIT: Both IDs are persistent so we can choose whichever we want. Then I think the ID used in the url is more easy to understand so let's go with that. I.e. I think the proposal should stand as it is (since I noticed that is already used as the domain) Ambrosiani (talk) 13:30, 20 August 2019 (UTC)
