- You get the error Failed: Testing OAI support when adding a new repository to the Digital Collection Gateway
- Digital Collection Gateway
The Gateway uses the OAI-PMH
Identify verb to test basic functionality.
Identify is a required verb in the OAI-PMH protocol, so when it fails, it typically means the Gateway will not be able to support the repository. It is possible that the OAI-PMH repository is responding with an unexpected result, which may mean that the
Identify response does not conform to the OAI-PMH protocol, or that the response contains invalid XML.
There is documentation on the required elements of the Identify response.
