SUSHI Configuration and COUNTER Harvesting in WMS License Manager: SUSHI Registry

SUSHI Harvesting Documentation

OCLC Documentation

  • Configure COUNTER Vendors for Reporting - this documentation includes which COUNTER 4 and 5 reports can be harvested via SUSHI by License Manager, a list of SUSHI compliant vendors available for configuration, and the minimum required credentials to enter in when configuring vendors.
  • Request a SUSHI Vendor - if you have your COUNTER 5 SUSHI credentials, including the vendor's SUSHI URL, then you can enter your credentials for vendors that aren't available yet in License Manager. Entering your SUSHI credentials will start OCLC's process for adding a new vendor to SUSHI harvesting in License Manager.
  • Recurring Harvest - you can set up recurring harvests each month once you have verified your library's SUSHI credentials, as well as perform a one-time harvest for historical usage or to re-harvest any failed harvests.
  • Use the Harvest History - you can view successful and failed harvests, as well as harvests that returned no usage, and assess whether re-harvesting some SUSHI reports may be necessary.
  • Harvest Summary with Calculator and Coverage Display - you can calculate metric totals for all of the COUNTER 5 standard report views harvested by License Manager as well as harvest any missing reports from your desired coverage range using this feature.
  • License Manager Account Roles - certain levels of admin access are necessary to access the Licenses tab in WMS.
  • Reports and Report Designer Account Roles - certain levels of admin access are necessary to access the Analytics tab in WMS.
  • Acquisitions Account Roles - admin access to vendor roles are needed to access Vendors in the Licenses tab in WMS.

License Manager and XML COUNTER Manual Uploads

Manual COUNTER Report Uploads

If a content provider does not support SUSHI but does support COUNTER, they should be able to provide an XML, CSV or TSV COUNTER report. Properly formatted XML, CST and TSV files can be uploaded to License Manager by transferring a report file from your computer. These content providers' files have been successfully uploaded to License Manager.

  • ACLS - save the XLS file you receive as CSV, and then upload.
