Passing Continuous Quality Control

last updated at 2023-09-07

Continuous Quality Control (CQC) is a process that ensures the quality of the metadata of an ARC meets certain standards.

CQC is performed on each commit to an ARC, and the results are displayed on the ARC homepage:

For more details, you can click on the pipeline badge (1), and investigate the steps of the CQC pipeline details:

CQC pipeline details

Click on a pipeline result (e.g., (4)) of a commit of choice to open the CQC pipeline details for that commit.

On the next page, you can see the details of the CQC pipeline for the selected commit:

Clicking on (7) will open the CQC pipeline, where each step can be viewed in detail:

Starting the publication process

Clicking on the publish button (2) on the ARC homepage will start the publication process. Refer to the ARChigator guide for more information on the publication process.

What to do when the CQC pipeline fails?

There are multiple issues that can lead to a failed CQC pipeline:

CQC step 1 fails

CQC step 1 (10), should never fail, as it usually creates a json file even when there is no ARC in the repository. If this step fails, please contact the DataHUB support team, as there is something fundamentally wrong with your repository.

CQC step 2 fails

CQC step 2 (11), is the most common step to fail. This step contains a set of critical quality checks that MUST pass in order for the ARC to be eligible for publication, and a set of non-critical checks that signify metadata quality. Only failed critical tests lead to a failed CQC pipeline. If this happens, investigate the failed tests in the Test tab (13), and fix the issues based on the information displayed there. An example could for example be a person not having a first name in your investigation metadata. Commit your changes and check wether the tests pass.

CQC step 3 fails

As CQC step 3 (12) is only performed after the ARC has passed all critical tests (10), it is very unlikely that this step fails. If it does, please contact the DataHUB support team.
