Representing the filename of the original content


Philippe Mougin
 

Hi,

Use case : journalist uploads graphic content from a file into the editorial system. The editorial system creates a news item and needs to store the original file name, as it constitutes a useful hint to the user for various purposes.
This sounds like a job for the "altId" property, right? 
How should we model it?

<altId type="idtype:originalfilename">myfile.jpeg</altId>

or is it 

<altId role="idrole:originalfilename">myfile.jpeg</altId> ?

Or something else? 

Best,

Philippe

Hi

Refinitiv uses altId/@type with an idType including fileXML, fileXML, versionedId and a number of other proprietary values. The @role would be used to indicate the role, such as ‘original’ etc.

Thanks Dave. 

For the record, we eventually opted to not use the <altId> bc in our use case the current content of the item may differ from original content.
We then explored using a <link> with a rel such as "originalContentFile" and a residref holding the filename. This is a semantically/rdf-ically correct approach, but alas it did not fit well with some of our internal requirements, so we ended up adding a specific extension: an "originalContentFilename" property in the contentMeta extension point.

Best,

Philippe
