Tool for automated processing of directories in BitCurator.
CCA Folder Processor creates Archivematica-ready SIPs from directories on a local filesystem, piece of external media, or network shares, and generates a pre-populated description spreadsheet containing information such as start and end dates, extents, and a scope and content note for each created SIP.
The GUI offers a checkbox interface to select which directories should be turned into SIPs.
CCA Folder Processor creates an md5deep-generated checksum.md5 manifest saved in each SIP's metadata directory (according to Archivematica packaging ventions) as default behavior. To create each SIP as a bag instead, select that option from the GUI interface. Folder Processor can optionally also run a PII scan of each SIP using bulk_extractor as part of the Brunnhilde characterization step of SIP creation and description. Bulk_extractor results are saved to metadata/submissionDocumentation, in the Brunnhilde report output folder.
This utility is designed for easy use in BitCurator v1.8.0+. It requires Python 3 and PyQt5.
