"Copy metadata" feature does not copy custom fields
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The "copy metadata" feature currently ignores custom fields added through upload campaigns like WLM. It should dynamically add those fields to the checkboxes (default-checked) when a campaign is loaded, and copy them if the user requests it.

bzimport set Reference to bz40147.

When I used UploadWizard all the checkboxes were default-checked, so could you explain a bit what you want to see here?

Nischay, this refers to custom fields added by the campaign feature; see

No. These are different "custom tags". Bug 39927 describes custom licensing templates like {{PD-Art}} being entered in the license selection workflow on a per-image basis and not correctly applied across a batch. This bug describes extra fields added via an upload campaign (such as a monument identifier number for WLM) not being copied.

Can we have a list of all such "custom tags" possible?
I can only see idField and idField2 atm.

Reproduced as well.

Since the changes to the Campaigns, there can be as many fields as defined in the JSON configuration.

I filed bug 53637 which is a duplicate.
Info from that bug:
I did the following actions

-I upload multiple images with for example the custom campaign on Commons.
-After using the link
and selecting 2 images I add information in the custom field for monument
identifiers. When I use the option "Copy information to all uploads below ..."
the information from the custom field isn't copied. All other information is

This seems like a bug to me.

  • Bug 53637 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

I am attempting/going to author a patch that will copy this information if the "Copy other information" checkbox is checked. I am not sure whether it is a good idea adding a 7th checkbox ("Copy campaign information"); if this is really wanted, it can be added later (I will make sure that it will be easy doing so.)

A checkbox for each single campaign field is, however, not possible unless the campaign scheme also defines a label that could be used by this checkbox.
"Copy " + fields[n].label does not work well (often longish text, starts with upper case letter, grammar, ...).
