Hi Santiago

If you replace the file:


with this one:


this should fix the problem. This file should match the content of the DWCA
meta.xml downloaded from GBIF. We need to remove the use of this file (as
the format of the GBIF archives may change in future releases of their API),
but updating it is a quick fix for this current problem.

Subject: Ingest problem :(

Hi Dave,

I'm checking out the ansible script, and I have a problem with the field
mapping in the indexing process.

The question is that when I upload this resource
.zip ( http://www.gbif.org/dataset/835177da-f762-11e1-a439-00145eb45e9a) and
I try to ingest the records. The mapping that the process applies for the
indexing, it's wrong. (Look attach image please)

It's like if one column is moved one position left. The begining of this
problem appears in the column:

<field index="54" term="http://purl.org/dc/terms/type"/>

The next columns are moved one position left. It's weird.

For this reason, you can see that the field "Associated taxa" is  "Basis of
record", and the same with the rest of the fields

Could be a error in the internal map? In the meta.xml the order of the
fields is right. I was thinking that it could be a error in the internal
process of indexing

Do you know what could be the problem?? Does anyone have the same problem as

Thanks so much.
Kind Regards.
