Filter Setup

With the USE_FILTERS option set to True in settings, filters will be called once a file object has been verified.

Filters allow post-processing of uploaded files and can be used to extract metadata from file headers and/or generate thumbnail images.

The DataFileObject’s verify method submits a task called “mytardis.apply_filters” to the message broker (RabbitMQ).

This task can be picked up by the “mytardis-filters” microservice: or by your own custom microservice.
