[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Bulk updater plug-in

Hi all,

We've been having problems with using the bulk updater plug-in to add more
than one Top Container to an archival object and wondered if anyone else
had experienced this issue?

We want to use the bulk updater to add top containers to archival objects,
creating the top containers as part of the process. This works perfectly
when adding just one container to an archival object. However, when we try
to add two top containers to one archival object by completing details in
the instance 2 fields in the spreadsheet, the import creates two instances
of the same Top Container (for the top container details in the field
instance 2 rather than instance 1). The Top Container from the instance 1
field in the spreadsheet is created but is not attached to the Resource.

We're using 2.8.1 but we've tried this on a test instance on 3.0.1 and
encountered the same problem.

Any help or advice on this would be much appreciated!

Many thanks,
