Hello all,

I have recently set up a DSpace 7 test server, by using data and configs from our live 6.2 instance and got it up and working (almost) fine.

When trying to add a new item as Administrator in one (any) of the collections - New - Item Create a new item in... -  the message "You have not the privilege to make a new submission." is displayed. 

The following response is received by the UI:

{"timestamp":"2022-05-04T10:43:42.493+00:00","status":500,"error":"Internal Server Error","message":"An exception has occurred","path":"/server/api/submission/workspaceitems"}

And the following is logged by the backend in dspace.log:

2022-05-04 10:45:29,829 ERROR 12681462-6c1d-42f8-9557-2f806c58c7ee a069f79e-d60c-4902-9f0c-1f08f96479cf org.dspace.app.rest.exception.DSpaceApiExceptionControllerAdvice @ An exception has occurred (status:500)
java.lang.IllegalStateException: The submission configration is invalid the processing class for the step collection is not found at org.dspace.app.rest.converter.SubmissionDefinitionConverter.convert(SubmissionDefinitionConverter.java:70) ~[classes/:7.2.1] at org.dspace.app.rest.converter.SubmissionDefinitionConverter.convert(SubmissionDefinitionConverter.java:38) ~[classes/:7.2.1]

...

My guess is that this is somehow related to the migrated submission conf files, but I'm not sure exactly what to look for, or if there could be something else involved here.

DSpace version 7.2.1
O/S: Ubuntu 20.04.4
Java version: openjdk 11.0.15

Any advice or hints would be really appreciated, thanks!

/ Urban A.

I would look in config/item-submission.xml for the <step-definition
id="collection"/> element. Looking at the code, I think that the
step-definition exists but its <processing-class/> is incorrect.
SubmissionDefinitionConverter.convert() got a ClassNotFoundException
when it applied Class.forName() to the value of that element.

If the processing-class is correct, then there must be no such class
visible on the classpath.

The exception message ought to quote the step name ("collection" in
this case) to make the meaning of the exception clearer. It is
showing the 'id' of the <step-definition/>.

The processing-class specified for step "collection" in my item-submission.xml did not exist - wrong name and path. Not sure why, I might have done something when the old conf files were migrated.
After adding the correct class manually (and rebuilding the backend) it works fine.

Many thanks for your quick response and for pointing me in the right direction!
