SPIKE 4: Figure out best process for building Field mapping screens for MARCcat records

    Description

      Purpose: When creating or editing a Data Import Field mapping profile, we want the screen to mirror the create/edit screen for the existing record as much as possible.

      Here are the MARCcat record types we will need Field mappings for:

      • Bibliographic
      • Holdings
      • Authority

      Whatever actions happen to SRS records (create, modify, overlay, merge, etc) will also happen to the corresponding MARCcat records. Most fields will be clones of the SRS MARC.

      The "mapping" profile only has to allow for MARCcat field that are not part of the MARC record. Maybe just have a table or setting??

      Those fields still to be defined and enumerated

      MARC field mapping Record type priorities:
      1. Inventory
      2. Acquisitions (orders and invoices)
      3. SRS
      4. MARCcat

      Aim to be able to start building by 12 August 2019

      Factors to consider:

      • When creating/editing a record, a user fills data into the various fields, selects from dropdown lists, or marks checkboxes. For the mapping screen, instead of filling in data, the user will fill in a mapping (or possible a cascade of mappings) based on the incoming record type. Instead of a mapping, they may also fill in a constant data value. We're still working out the syntax for all of this.
      • Some of the record schema are still evolving. How do we ensure that our create/edit screen stays synchronized with the current version of the other app's create/edit screen?
      • The data mapping will be associated with an action, and will act on an incoming file based on the job's match + action criteria. For example, try to match the incoming record on the barcode number. If not match is found, then Create a new Item. At that point, the associated field mapping kicks in to gather data from the incoming record and organize it according to the instructions in the field mapping profile, preparing it to go to Inventory and build a new item record.
      • What else?
