How to add or remove entity generation for schema sub properties

When you create a dataset, additional data nodes will be created for specific sub-elements of the dataset as well, the default properties are: publisher, theme, keywords, and distribution. These data nodes will provide unique reference ids for the sub-elements and can be accesssed via an API endpoint. Learn about the API.

You can customize which sub-elements generate additional data nodes here admin/dkan/properties.


When the value of these elements change or become outdated, the corresponding data node will be unpublished by the orphan_reference_processor queue task.

If you prefer to run it manually, you may do so with:
