The BIDS Curation Gear is provided as part of the gear exchange. Once installed, it can be run against a project from the data or session view by clicking Run Gear, selecting Utility Gear, and selecting BIDS Curation. No additional configuration is necessary, the gear will run against the entire project and will automatically determine whether to run in initial or update mode on a per file basis. Once the gear has run, the BIDS view should be available, and the project and any matched files will have BIDS metadata object in their info. The curation gear can be run as many times as is necessary. After initialization, the only fields that will be changed by the gear are fields with auto_update rules specified, as well as the special properties (valid and error_message)
The gear can be configured with two options, reset and entire_project. The first option will clear the BIDS info object on all assets before curation, thus rematching them to templates. The second configuration option is set true by default, and can be unchecked to only curate a single session instead of the entire project. This is useful if a single session needs to be reset before curating.
