Hi Gwen,

Others may have answers here, but I'm also going to put a support ticket in for this. (You'll see another message about that directly to you in a minute.) Our tech folks who are familiar with multiple Archon migrations may have some ideas.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Subject Record Migration from Archon


I'm working on reviewing Subject Records from our recent migration from Archon and have run across a discrepancy regarding how the faceted Subjects in Archon are displaying in ArchivesSpace. It seems that tiered Subject Records in Archon are displaying as multiple Subject Records in ArchivesSpace so that a record like Academic libraries -- United States -- Maryland now has three Subject Records in ArchivesSpace, Academic libraries, Academic libraries -- United States, and Academic libraries -- United States -- Maryland.

Where I'm running into trouble is that some of these records say they have Resource or Accession tags in the Subject Record but are not tagged in the Subject field for the Resource or Accession. Has anyone experienced this issue with their migrated data and does deleting or merging the untagged Subject Record create any issues with other Subject Records or Resource Records?

Thanks for your time,
Gwen Coddington
