[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Top-Container restrictions

I watched the video, tried some stuff out and I saw that worked on the resources level (thank you for pointing to that resource). If I update the Rights statement in accessions with restrictions information it doesn’t look like that is carrying over into the top-containers being listed as attached to the accession. Is that not a current functionality?

I'm glad you all asked about this! In short, containers aren't restricted, materials are. These material restrictions are then associated with containers.

I made a video about how it works here (a couple of years ago, but the functionality hasn't changed), which I hope you all enjoy. https://youtu.be/biCDhkbBSng

Following up on Brian’s question is mine:

How can you make a Top Container restricted?  I’ve tried restricting content (series or file level item) in a Resource record that is associated with a Top Container (doesn’t carry over t the Top Container) and I see no way to do this within a Top container record.

Thanks for all help!

Is there a non-API way to note that a top-container is restricted? I see this looks like it should be an option since it is a listed field in the container management, but there is nothing in the top-container record data entry form or update after-the-fact to actually note that a container is restricted.
