[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Component Unique Identifiers

Good morning,

We've just linked our ArchivesSpace instance to our website and are trying to move our users away from Archon. There's one major hurdle. We migrated from Archon to ArchivesSpace with the first migration tool, and our only container instances are nonsensical records created by the import.  In most cases, our intellectual description matches up with the  physical location, which means if I can see the series number and folder number I can find the item. I'm hoping to find out whether we can somehow force the public interface to display the component unique identifiers which do not appear when I look at finding aids in the public interface (or in the staff interface without viewing the particular record).

It's going to be quite some time before I can modify every finding aid and add containers, so I'm hoping in the meantime there is a temporary fix that doesn't require me logging into the staff interface (or going back to Archon) every time a patron requests something. I wonder whether other Archon users are having this problem, and would welcome any suggestions. Thank you!
