How to add a Registration Status to content

In this article we will go over how to Register or Endorse content at a particular state from an item page, without having to go through the Review process. This is for users of the registry that are either Administrators of the system or Stewardship Organisation, or Registrars of a Registration Authority.

 1. Go to the item page of the item you would like to register. 

2. From the Actions bar select "Add Registration Status"

3. Fill in the form:

  1. Registration date - The date this registration state will be active from, and when this state will be visible on the item page to the appropriate users. 
  2. Cascade registration - Select "Yes" if you would like to register all related items. Or, "No" if you only want to register the selected item. 
  3. State - Select from the dropdown the endorsement state you would like to register this content at.
  4. Registration Authority - Select the Registration Authority you want this content endorsed in.
    1. Select theicon next to the Registration Authority name to view that RA's visibility settings and which users can view the registration statuses and items - these may be different for each RA. 
  5. Administrative note - This allows you to add a published note. This message will be visible and give more context around the registration change in the "History" of this item. 
4. Select to either "Review Changes" or "Update Status"

  1. Review Changes - This will show you a breakdown of the changes that are going to happen to the content. 

  1. Update Status - Will automatically apply the changes to the content. When the Registration date is hit, this registration status will be visible in the "Info box" under Endorsed by.
