The internal artefact plugin hooks into the LEAP export system to export all profile related artefacts. Due to profile artefacts not mapping nicely to entries - in fact, most profile artefacts become persondata elements within an entry - this plugin generates its own XML for most of them.

Export Strategy

Apart from the Occupation and Industry profile fields, all artefacts are exported in a LEAP2A person entry. This entry always has the id portfolio:artefactinternal, and is referenced by the tag for the feed. Inside this entry are leap:persondata elements for most of Mahara's profile fields. The address fields are exported in a leap:spatial element.

Profile icons are linked to this element using a related link type. These are the only links created for the person entry.
