[Archivesspace_Users_Group] FW: Transfer failed

Hi Brian,

I've attached a screenshot so you can see what I see... It is a corporate agent record, called test repository, with nothing linked to it. "Test repository" is the name of the repository that I created to test the functionality. We are running v1.4.0.

Thanks for your help, Brian.

Hi Holley,

What do you see if you navigate to: agents/agent_corporate_entity/298 ?

Also, what version of ArchivesSpace are you using?

Hello All,

My library is migrating one repository in Archon to two repositories in ArchivesSpace. Our plan is to move the Archon repository into ArchivesSpace and then transfer collections to the second repository using ArchivesSpace's transfer functionality. I just tried this out in our test instance and got the following error message. I get the same error regardless of whether the collection has linked agents or not. Has anyone encountered this error or have an idea why it is occurring?

Thanks in advance for your help-
