What is the best way to get a Dataset DOI when you start with a Datafile DOI?

Input: persistentID of a file

Desired info: JSON-LD citation for the file's dataset

We tried using the search API to get the dataset's persistentID but were unsuccessful.


   -> gave 27k+ results

Please let us know if there's a workaround.  Any way to these would help:
  - file persistentId -> file id
  - file persistentId -> dataset persistent Id 
  - file persistentId -> dataset file Id

Hi Raman, you've definitely found a bug and a problem with the index on Harvard Dataverse. For now, can you try the demo site? I seem to be having fairly good luck finding https://demo.dataverse.org/file.xhtml?persistentId=doi:10.5072/FK2/Q1RSNG/MVJGHT with https://demo.dataverse.org/api/search?q=filePersistentId:MVJGHT

I'd say that from there you'd have to parse the citation to get the dataset DOI, but because the demo site (and Harvard Dataverse) use the default :DataFilePIDFormat setting of "randomString/DEPENDENT"* in this case you can easily derived the dataset pid from the file pid by simply the last slash and every after it so that "doi:10.5072/FK2/Q1RSNG/MVJGHT" becomes "doi:10.5072/FK2/Q1RSNG".

I hope this makes sense! This seems fairly related to https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/issues/4616
