With my last few bulk uploads, I’ve noticed that the submissions do not seem to be getting assigned to my account. I don’t know why this is.
In the bulk import log (https://zebra.wildbook.org/imports.jsp), there are several imports from earlier this week listed under my name, Fiona Logan-Sankey. However, if you navigate to the task page for any of them, the user ID given is “c97e30b7-3f1f-4ca0-b18d-15da9e4e14f3” instead. And within the encounters themselves, although my email address is listed as the submitter, they do not appear to be linked to my account. There is no name/affiliation, and the encounters are not assigned to me as a “managing researcher”.
Example of metadata for a recently uploaded encounter:
See imports: fa1bc8c9, 3684e8ca, f8a2f5f3, and d55a3d1a for additional examples.
I highlight this because it’s in significant contrast to other, older encounters I have made, including some submitted via bulk import, which list me as the managing researcher and generally look like this:
This particular encounter is an image of individual 2020_0132 taken last June from a bulk upload I did in February. This bulk upload is no longer available via the log because it’s out side of the display time window, but I was able to access it from the View My Submissions page under the Encounters dropdown.
Concerningly, none of my new imports have been showing up the View My Submissions page, and I think it’s related to the user ID situation I’ve described above. This also makes me worry that I could have trouble accessing my submissions in the future, once the import task record is gone from the bulk import log page.
I think this is affecting other accounts as well. @maggieliebich noted that her bulk uploads from the last few weeks (she has submitted a lot more than me), don’t show up under View My Submissions for her, either.
I’m not sure what’s going on, but I am concerned that imported data are not being linked to submitter accounts properly.
Our spreadsheet template, with respect to the Encounter.submitter fields, haven’t changed since before the import containing the second example encounter above (except maybe column order).
I’m hoping you guys can help me sort this out, and figure out, what, if anything should be done to rectify the situation.
