Islandora Build Status


Islandora Fedora Repository Module

For installation and customization instructions please see the documentation and the DuraSpace Wiki.

All bugs, feature requests and improvement suggestions are tracked at the DuraSpace JIRA.


This module requires the following modules/libraries:

Tuque is expected to be in one of two paths:

  • sites/all/libraries/tuque (libraries directory may need to be created)
  • islandora_folder/libraries/tuque

More detailed requirements are outlined in the Installing the Islandora Module chapter of the documentation.

Optional Requirements

If you want to support languages other than English download and enable String Translation, and follow our guide for setting up additional languges.


Before installing Islandora the XACML policies located here should be copied into the Fedora global XACML policies folder. This will allow "authenticated users" in Drupal to access Fedora API-M functions. It is to be noted that the permit-upload-to-anonymous-user.xml and permit-apim-to-anonymous-user.xml files do not need to be present unless requirements for anonymous ingesting are present.

You will also have to remove some default policies if you want full functionality as well.

Remove deny-purge-datastream-if-active-or-inactive.xml to allow for purging of datastream versions.

More detailed information can be found in the 'Set XACML Policies' in the Installing Fedora chapter of the documentation.


The islandora_drupal_filter passes the username of 'anonymous' through to Fedora for unauthenticated Drupal Users. A user with the name of 'anonymous' may have XACML policies applied to them that are meant to be applied to Drupal users that are not logged in or vice-versa. This is a potential security issue that can be plugged by creating a user named 'anonymous' and restricting access to the account.

Drupal's cron can be run to remove expired authentication tokens.
