Hi Kayla,

We get the same error here when we import an EAD into ASpace. (the string after the record number is different by one number: @archival_object-1__for_key__uniq_ao_pos_) We’re not sure what causes the error, but it resolves when we resync the record. Was this finding aid imported into ASpace?

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Unable to change title of an item

Hello all,

I am doing some cleanup in our item level photograph records and have come across an issue. I am trying to update the titles of some of our items and I am receiving an error message (please see image attached).

[Inline image 1]

My coworker, who is our admin, tried to do it as well but received the same message. We exported the EAD to make sure there were no duplicate Ref IDs or component IDs and we confirmed that there were not. I also cleared my browsing history and cookies just to double check.

Does anyone have any solutions for this error message?

Thanks in advance!
