Axiell Sapphire

Guide to using and configuring the Axiell Sapphire add-on to EMu.

Sapphire is a browser-based add-on to the EMu Collections Management System. It is designed to provide access to your EMu database for the creation of new records and editing of existing records through custom-built forms. A Form is designed and constructed by authorised users around a workflow, capturing data, editing records, creating attachments, etc., with each Form providing access to a subset of fields.

02 Mar 20   EMu Online Help updated with a new side navigation template. A feedback option has been built into the Help allowing users to email feedback for specific pages.

New Operations privileges:

  • Re-identify
  • Relocate
  • Revalue

Operations Registry entry privileges have been added for the Condition Update, Re-identification, Relocation and Revaluation tools. Previously access to these tools required that users were given the Global Replace (daReplace) Operations privilege. While users with the daReplace privilege will still be able to use these tools, it is now possible to give users access to each of these tools without also providing them with the Global Replace privilege. The new privilege values are:

Tool Name Privilege
Condition Update daRecondition
Re-identification daReidentify
Relocation daRelocate
Revaluation daRevalue
