[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Rendering identifiers in search results?

It appears that you can also append “&display_identifier=true”  to the search results URL and hit return.

But there doesn’t appear to be a way to set this in defaults or config:


@display_identifier = params[:display_identifier] ? params[:display_identifier] : false

Perhaps those lines should be changes to use an AppConfig[] value ?  ( :frontend_search_display_identifier ? )
Although I would be as happy to have the default be true. ( Does anybody NOT want to see ids ?   )

Since extra columns for the browse pages for Accession, Resource and Digital Object are set in user preferences, it would probably be more consistent to control it with a preference setting instead of an AppConfig setting ( but that would probably be a bit more work ).

BTW: Some of those functions controlling the search listing view are in the search_helper code: https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/frontend/app/helpers/search_helper.rb

Assuming it is the staff interface you are referring to, there is a plugin available that will add identifiers to search results.

See https://github.com/lyrasis/aspace-search-identifier. Seems to work fine on our TEST instance, which runs 2.2, I believe.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Rendering identifiers in search results?

Does anybody have advice/examples of how to get identifiers to show up in search results?

What I have so far is that there does not seem to be a graphical way to do this; so looking into the structure of 2.2 on github to potentially modify and add to my local plugin I found the file “frontend/app/views/search/_listing.html.erb”. This seems to be the file that facilitates rendering search results(?). It has a line in it that says <% add_identifier_column ifshow_identifier_column? %>. There is no other reference to rendering an identifier. Ideas?
