Add subscriber info to User Import plugin
Last modified: 2009-07-27 13:26:52 PDT
From the Ontario Synergies node:
The Users XML plug-in could be expanded to allow subscription information to be imported in tandem with user information.
Fields to add would include:
- Subscription type
- Start date
- End date
- IP range
- Email user with login and subscription details
We might also consider merging the users import/export DTDs for OJS, OCS, and OMP into a single schema - or at least allow cross-import - to allow data exchange between applications, where possible.

Just came up on the forums today, actually: http://pkp.sfu.ca/support/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=4210&p=16337#p16337. I haven't ever tried exporting articles or issues from and importing to another, but it strikes me that we should probably ensure that this is doable. This brings up another, larger notion (maybe better suited to email or another bug report): abstracting common plugins out of each platform so we don't have to worry about duplicated code.
In order for a journal to make use of subscription information coming into a system with an imported user, the subscription type data would also have to be (ex|im)ported.
