Hi Mark, re: your second question on the 2.8.0 update, did you undertake a full reindex as part of the update? Would staff be willing to undertake one now? The symptom of opening a record, saving it, and then [insert behavior] works is something I associate with indexing and might be worth a try.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Two questions

Hello ASpace List,

I have two questions and thought I'd post them here:

1.  We are getting a "translation missing:  en.instance_container.barcode" error in our ASpace 2.0.

I'm sensing I need to add a translation to the "instance_container" section of /locales/en.yml:
    <<: *instance_attributes
    barcode: Barcode

But is this correct?

2.  A query from one of our archivists:

Since the ArchivesSpace upgrade to 2.8 a couple months ago, I've encountered some issues with adding container information to archival object records. Specifically, when a container already exists in ArchivesSpace, I am not able to link to it in a new AO record by typing in the box number or barcode as I used to be able to do. I get a "no matching results. Try 'Browse'" message in the dropdown. I can locate the existing container record as usual and then link to it, but it is cumbersome.

A workaround I have found is that when I open the container record, hit Edit, and then resave, the barcode or box number pop up when I try to type it in the Instance field of an AO record.

Any thoughts on a remedy to this?

Advice MUCH appreciated!
