Hi Paula,

As far as I know, you will require 2 fields in the metadata.
Maybe a shot in the dark but, have you updated these fields in dspace.cfg:

#### Embargo Settings ####
# DC metadata field to hold the user-supplied embargo terms
embargo.field.terms = SCHEMA.ELEMENT.QUALIFIER

# DC metadata field to hold computed "lift date" of embargo
embargo.field.lift = SCHEMA.ELEMENT.QUALIFIER

with best regards,

Bram Luyten

Hello Paula,

with regards to Step 2, how did you expose the metadata in the form?

With form I assume you mean [dspace-source]/config/input-forms.xml?

There are several input types to assign to a field among others date,
see dc.date.issued as input form field:
<field>
        <dc-schema>dc</dc-schema>
         <dc-element>date</dc-element>
         <dc-qualifier>issued</dc-qualifier>
         <repeatable>false</repeatable>
         <label>Date of Issue</label>
         <input-type>date</input-type>
         <hint>Please ...</hint>
         <required>You must enter at least the year.</required>
</field>

So setting your dc.description.embargo (might be better not to use dc
for this but rather use an internal administrative field) as input type
date in the input-forms should display it as such, assuming that you did
build, update and deploy your installation afterwards. There is no step
3 so maybe this is missing.

Furthermore the embargo will only work on newly ingested items, i.e.
during the submission process. Adding the configured embargo field as a
metadata to an item in archive, will have no effect.

Hope that helps

Claudia Jürgen
