New Functionality

When an accession is created, Aurora now delivers a POST request to a configured URL along with a payload containing JSON data about that accession.

Aurora now allows updated transfer data to be delivered as a JSON payload via an HTTP PUT request. The application will update its transfer data and will also remove the transfer files from the delivery directory.


Properly serializes rights statements in the OpenAPI schema provided so external applications can use it to validate accession data. This functionality is used in Ursa Major.

Improves the application's accessibility: keyboard-only navigation is better-supported, color contrast is increased overall, and status badges are now progress bars.

Config file changes

In order for Aurora to deliver transfers to a microservice environment, this update requires the addition of a DELIVERY_URL configuration key in, set to the endpoint to which accession data should be posted.
