Allows users to submit metadata-only content for the alternate file.

  • Directs the system to create a metadata-only alternate file. In this scenario, the contributor does not specify an alternate file. Instead, the system will create the alternate file using a template and the content item's metadata.

  • When AllowAlternateMetaFile is set to TRUE, an extra check box is added to the checkin page. When this check box is selected, the createAlternateMetaFile variable is enabled.

  • For use in the Batch Loader, createAlternateMetaFile must be set to TRUE in the batch load file.
