get_file_metadata {dataverse}R Documentation

Retrieve a ddi metadata file

Description

Retrieve a ddi metadata file

Usage

get_file_metadata(
  file,
  dataset = NULL,
  format = c("ddi", "preprocessed"),
  key = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_KEY"),
  server = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_SERVER"),
  ...
)

Arguments

file

An integer specifying a file identifier; or a vector of integers specifying file identifiers; or, if used with the prefix "doi:", a character with the file-specific DOI; or, if used without the prefix, a filename accompanied by a dataset DOI in the dataset argument, or an object of class “dataverse_file” as returned by dataset_files. Can be a vector for multiple files.

dataset

A character specifying a persistent identification ID for a dataset, for example "doi:10.70122/FK2/HXJVJU". Alternatively, an object of class “dataverse_dataset” obtained by dataverse_contents().

format

Defaults to “ddi” for metadata files

key

A character string specifying a Dataverse server API key. If one is not specified, functions calling authenticated API endpoints will fail. Keys can be specified atomically or globally using Sys.setenv("DATAVERSE_KEY" = "examplekey").

server

A character string specifying a Dataverse server. Multiple Dataverse installations exist, with "dataverse.harvard.edu" being the most major. The server can be defined each time within a function, or it can be set as a default via an environment variable. To set a default, run Sys.setenv("DATAVERSE_SERVER" = "dataverse.harvard.edu") or add ⁠DATAVERSE_SERVER = "dataverse.harvard.edu⁠ in one's .Renviron file (usethis::edit_r_environ()), with the appropriate domain as its value.

...

Additional arguments passed to an HTTP request function, such as GET, POST, or DELETE.

Value

A character vector containing a DDI metadata file.
