    WebV: Redirect Searches cannot be set as browses

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 8.2.1

    Description:
    Bug Report Form for Issue 16384-12977
    Module(s): WebVoy?ge
    Server platform(s) affected: Tested on Solaris and Linux
    PC OS (if applicable): N/A
    Browser & version (if applicable): N/A

    Release(s) replicated in: 7.2.3
    Last version without bug (if applicable): N/A

    Expected results: To be able to make redirect searches into browses by modifying webvoyage.properties

    Actual results: Changing redirect searches to browses will cause the redirect to no longer function

    Workflow implications: Customers are not able to use browses for search redirects

    Replication steps:
    1. In webvoyage.properties, change the following three lines so that they end with a plus sign:
    holdings.redirect.author.search.code=NAME+
    holdings.redirect.subject.search.code=SUBJ+
    holdings.redirect.callNumber.search.code=CALL+
    2. Search for any record in WebVoy?ge, and load the holdingsInfo page. Click on the redirects for Subject or Author, they will not work, taking you to an error page stating “Could not retrieve search results.”
    3. Modify the URL from step 2 so that instead of “searchCode=SUBJ+”, it reads “searchCode=SUBJ%2B”, and resubmit, the search will now work as expected

    Other information: This issue cannot be replicated with call number browses.

    Resolution:
    Fixed in Voyager 8.2.1
