[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Incomplete Subject Merge

Yes, this makes sense.  It's scary to see the links disappear, but they do
return as you indicated if a minor edit is made to the impacted Resources.

Also, I've discovered it isn't just the merge that behaves this way.  Any
edits made to a Subject will cause its Linked Records to drop off until a
forced re-indexing of each previously Linked Record is done.

Thanks for putting in the ticket to have this resolved!

Hi Jamie,

Yes, this looks like the merge function is not triggering the resource
records to be reindexed. If you make a small edit to the resource record
and save it, it will trigger the reindex and the subject values will be

I've made a ticket for this here =>

If you remove the data/indexer_state directory, this will trigger a
system-wide reindex, so the subjects will be updated.

Does that make sense? Let me know if you have any other questions...
