Problem with numbering of subject IDs in mods.

Project:RUcore Workflow Management System (WMS)
Component:Batch Import
Category:bug report

For some reason, with mods:subject, the numbering of the IDs breaks after nine topics are included. So, we get <mods:subject ID="SBJ-1" authority="local"> through <mods:subject ID="SBJ-9" authority="local"> the next one is designated <mods:subject ID="SBJ-176543210" authority="local"> (or some other random number for the ID). After that, <mods:subject ID="SBJ-1" authority="local"> is repeated for each additional topic.

I noticed this happening during a batch ingest. Kalaivani later discovered this also happens during the manual object creation process.

No IDs are assigned for subject. I added multiple entries in subject(topic). They are in the XML but don't see any IDs assigned.


Version:5.2» 5.3


Version:5.3» 6.2

Moving from 5.3 to 6.2.

We don't have specs for how subject ID should be generated, what they are used for, and who should create them (automatic or by user). If there is indeed a need for these ID's, provide specs first. -YY
