The Ingest micro-service provides a means to add new digital content into the curation environment for active management by the Program. Using terms defined by the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) reference model, the Ingest service accepts Submission Information Packages (SIPs) and converts them into Archival Information Packages (AIPs). This process may involve the use of other micro-services: the Transformation service to transcode objects into normative forms defined by internal standards; the Characterization service to produce relevant descriptive information for management in the Inventory service; and the Storage service to manage object files.

The Ingest micro-service defines the following conceptual entities:

  • Batch. A set of jobs.
  • Job. The processing of a single digital object.
  • Profile. An indication of the type of digital object being ingested.
  • Handler. A specific ingest sub-task.
  • Notification. The final status resulting from an ingest.
