Testing set uniqueness error when adding new repository

  • You get the error "Testing Set Uniqueness" when adding a new repository to the Digital Collection Gateway 
Applies to
  • Digital Collection Gateway

If this test fails, it means that the repository returned a proper OAI ListSets response containing set information, but one or more of the setSpec identifiers are duplicated. The Gateway cannot work properly with duplicate setSpec identifiers because those are used to differentiate the collections in the repository. The user will not be allowed to add the repository with duplicate setSpec identifiers.
