Bug Description

When uploading several different files to the same queue (e.g. a huge MARC file that has been split into smaller parts), it's hard to keep track of exactly which files you have already uploaded. I don't know if EG already records filenames of uploaded MARC files (I didn't see anything in the vandelay schema), but it would be great to see a list -- maybe in the "Inspect Queue" interface -- of which files have been uploaded.

Jane, I may be misunderstanding your bug, but I thought that one can use the column called "imported as" to see which files have been imported. That column is supposed to show the bib number, (and hopefully the auth number) assigned to the record once it was imported.

I am not saying that having additional visual queue are a bad thing, just wanted to offer a potential workaround in the meantime. Also to make sure I was on the same page as you.

The imported_as column would help signify whether or not a given record was imported, but wouldn't seem to do much to tell which file the record came from if you've uploaded multiple files into a single queue. Of course, one workaround would be to create a queue for each file, but I can see the desirability of being able to stick multiple files into a queue.

I confirm that Evergreen doesn't currently keep track of the original filename, but the filename is available to the upload handler, which could in turn pass it to open-ils.vandelay.*.process_spool and in turn stick it in a new column in vandelay.queued_*_record.
