Old: Automatic Publication Blackout Approval
This page describes a tool that automatically approves items from Publication Blackout into the archive once their associated article is published
This feature is accessed by a command-line tool, which is designed to run via cron on the server. It has no user interface.
To automatically lift eligible items from blackout, run the following command:
$ /opt/dryad/bin/dspace dsrun org.dspace.workflow.ApproveBlackoutItems
Note that this requires a system curator account configured (see technical documentation)
To enable release at midnight
