[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Component Unique Identifiers

A belated thank you for this reply. We do not have on site support for database issues, but I sent it to our consultant who just had a chance to make the change you suggested. It shows the identifier for the particular thing I have highlighted, but doesn't show where it is within the hierarchy. For example:
Instead of File--Folder 2, I would like it to say
Series 2--Subseries 2--File-Folder 2. It does give the title for each of those in the blue bar, but it doesn't add the identifiers. Is it possible to add another line to get it to display this?

Thanks for your help!

If I understand what you want correctly:

Copy public/app/views/shared/_idbadge.html.erb into plugins/local/public/views/shared/
( assuming local plugins are enabled ) and add a line to display result.identifier, for example:

$ diff -U 6   public/app/views/shared/_idbadge.html.erb   plugins/local/public/views/shared/_idbadge.html.erb
--- public/app/views/shared/_idbadge.html.erb 2018-04-12 14:59:32.000000000 -0400
+++ plugins/local/public/views/shared/_idbadge.html.erb 2018-04-12 14:59:20.000000000 -0400
@@ -17,12 +17,13 @@
 <%= (props.fetch(:full,false)? '<h1>' : '<h3>').html_safe %>
   <% if !props.fetch(:full,false) %>
     <a class="record-title" href="<%= app_prefix(result.uri) %>">  <%== result.display_string %></a>
   <% else %>
     <%== result.display_string %>
   <% end %>
+  <h4><%= result.identifier %></h4>
 <%= (props.fetch(:full,false)? '</h1>' : '</h3>').html_safe %>

Since that template is shared in several places, that will add the identifier to other resource listings as well.
digital_object listing already shows identifier next to the badge, so it looks a bit redundant there.
If that’s not what you want, then add some qualifier on result.primary_type.
For archival_objects, identifier will display directly beneath the title in the ‘Collection Organization’ tab of the resource.

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!
