After dragging an EML actor from search result panel to canvas, there was a right-click menu item named "Get Metadata" on Kepler 1.0. User can use the menu item to review eml metadata. However, the "Get Metadata" menu item has gone on kepler 2.0.

The right click menu works if you rt click on the item in the library. I'll see if I can add this to the right click menu for the dragged actor.

On wrp suite (kepler trunk), I saw the "Get Metadata" menu item after right click an eml actor on an existed workflow (The eml actor is in a composite actor).

However, if i search (on the same wrp suite) "dato" on Data search panel and dragged the search result to the canvas. I couldn't see the "Get Metadata" menu after right click.

This is weird.

Fixed the missing director rt. click menu items. this was due to a menu reorg on the ptII side. Still working on the get metadata item.

Hey Chad, is the Get Metadata context menu item supposed to be available for all actors? It looks like in 1.0 it was just available for eg EML 2 Dataset. This isn't hurting anything as it is afaict, so not a big deal...

#6 Updated by Chad Berkley over 12 years ago

The action handler that supports figuring out which object has been clicked on seems to have been broken so in the interest of getting the menu back for the eml actor, I just added it across the board. If you click "get metadata" on an actor that is not a DataSource, you just get a message saying there is no metadata associated with the actor. I think this is something we can fix after the release. I'll retarget this bug to 2.x.
