Subject record linking is not precise enough


Please see the attached summary. This might be related to bug ANW-742, but we seem to be reporting something slightly different here.


2.5 and earlier version.

It seems to be the case that the linked records display is overly primitive. For "linked records" it's doing a search like this:[]={"subjects":"Photographs"}

And that's not precise enough to return the correct set of linked records. Personally, I'm not sure why search is being used for this function. The table displaying linked records should probably be pulling associations from the database, then there'd be no chance of ambiguous results.

I have submitted a pull request which I believe fixes this, and . I don’t know whether it will affect ANW-952, as we have not encountered that issue yet, but hopefully it won’t conflict with any fixes that may be working on for that issue.

This is now fixed in the test instance.

Agreed, I’m not seeing the issue in test instance.
