A couple of interesting bugs?

Good afternoon,

We're experiencing some odd behaviour in a couple of places. These are entirely unrelated to each other, I'm sure.

1. When searching for an accession record under "Manage accessions", we are unable to include forward slashes, "/", in the search text. For example, searching for 961/15.1, one of our accessions, yields an Elasticsearch error. However, if we wrap that search in quotation marks, "961/15.1", it works fine.

2. When editing an accession record, if we attempt to add a new Donor (not attach an existing one, but to create a completely new donor using the embedded form), we often get a blank name back in the accession record after clicking submit for the new donor form. If that happens and we then click Save on the accession record, this results in a 500 error. If we instead create the Donor first and then just attach them to the accession, everything is fine.

Any thoughts?

Hi Damian, 

Regarding 1: 

This is a known issue, because slashes are reserved characters in Elasticsearch. You'll find more details and a suggested workaround in the following forum thread:
Regarding 2: 

Can you share with me the error message found in the webserver logs when this happens, and a bit more about your installation? For example: 
  • Full version number as shown in Admin > Settings
  • Any changes you might have made to the default installation instructions
  • Anything else you think will help me to reproduce the issue
I will try to see if I'm able to reproduce this behavior. If so, I'll file a bug ticket so we can hopefully take a look for 2.7, since this is pretty core functionality. If not, hopefully the error log message might help me provide further suggestions.
