Thanks, Mark!  That was very clear.

Hi, Kate.

This is a new feature that was added during the development of the new public interface.  The intent is to allow staff to identify which digital object to highlight on a resource/accession/component page in the public interface in case there are more than one digital objects attached.    In Edit mode, you'll see that you now have the option to make a digital instance a representative one, but not an analog instance.  I'd suggest that this "is representative" value should be suppressed in view mode for analog instances since the staff interface doesn't permit a staff member to do that with an analog instance.

I hope that partially explains things, but I wouldn't say that this feature is really fully finished at this point, but that's the general intent of it.

When "viewing" an instance in AS staff interface (not editing) there is a line that displays as "Is representative?" suggesting that the data behind it is a "yes/no" "true/false" data type.  Does anyone have any idea what the data source is for this displayed field?  Screenshots below.

Here's the same record in "edit" view.
