Hi Rod, I launched a crawl of the resource and the data is now visible in the portal.

Can you explain the steps you took to upload the dataset - it would help to debug the process.

I kick it old skool, I call the API directly to create the data set and point it to the data.

POST to to create
POST to to set endpoint

This is the same way I uploaded The Plant List data.

I've noticed that the eml.xml file didn't render as I expected, probably because the  element has some embedded HTML (I loath EML). I wonder if that caused a problem?

I think you need to launch a crawl as well:

POST /dataset/33614778-513a-4ec0-814d-125021cca5fe/crawl

Yes, I realised that yesterday (doh!). I'd thought I'd been doing that but the script I used was copied and pasted from the script to set the endpoint, so it did that rather than launch a crawl. I then discovered that I'd done the same thing for The Plant List dataset, which was why it had several links to the same Darwin Core Archive instead of just one (I've since deleted the extra links). Once I figured this out did the right thing and the data is now showing up nicely.

P.S. Don't tell Tim R. or he'll revoke my hacking privileges on the grounds of being an idiot ;)

Not at all.

Please be aware though that that crawling will be off until new backbone is in place.  I sent a message to the api-users list yesterday about that.

Crawling starting again - ETA: Tuesday

Comment: Thanks Tim, yes, I'd seen that email on the API list. Looking forward to the new backbone being in place.
