Hi Andrew,

>From GitHub, it looks like 'min_resolution' was removed from the 'master' branch:
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/master/lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl
but was left as a remnant in the 3.3 branch (that your install will be based on):
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/lib/defaultcfg/cfg.d/eprint_fields.pl

Further to that commit in the master branch, the metafield workflow still asks for a min_resolution:
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/master/lib/workflows/metafield/default.xml#L72

 - so neither the 3.3 /or/ the master branch are fully 'right' :o\

That might explain *why* it's not working, but probably doesn't help you achieve what you want/need to do :o\
I would take a look at cfg.d/field_validation.pl or cfg.d/eprint_validation.pl, and add a check in there for the date field having at least the year and month parts set.

Cheers,
John

Subject: [EP-tech] Min Resolution on date fields

Hello all!

I’m currently trying to change the min_resolution on the stock date field to be “month” rather than “year”. I’ve changed this in our test environment in the eprint_fields.pl file in cfg.d, restarted the server but the validation is still allowing dates with only years through. Is there something I’m missing?
