I would like the "Support" link found at the top of the DV page to send email to a UVa admin address, not to Harvard Dataverse.

I found the setting "SystemEmail" in setup script here: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/4.3/scripts/api/setup-optional-harvard.sh

So I made the API call and verified that it worked:

curl http://dvdev.lib.virginia.edu:8080/api/admin/settings/:SystemEmail

{

"status":"OK","data":

{"message":"UVa Dataverse Support <shl...@virginia.edu>"}

}


But email from the form still goes to Harvard.

Hi Sherry,

It appears that the SystemEmail is the sender address (i.e. the system's address that "sends" the notification emails).

The Harvard support address is hardcoded in SendFeedbackDialog.java as the default address, to be used if the context of the dialog is not a dataverse or dataset.
From your description I infer that the support link in the top 'menu' is a different context than the dataverse (which sounds reasonable to me, although maybe not for the top dataverse).

Could you open an issue on GitHub or send an email to sup...@dataverse.org about this?

Ben
