Description Katrin Fischer 2019-06-24 09:24:39 UTC
We followed the instructions on bug 8523 comment 19, but we didn't manage to get a tree view:

AuthDisplayHieararchy ON

151 $aGermany
  551 $a Baden-Württemberg $w h

151 $aBaden-Württemberg
  551 $a Konstanz $w h
  551 $a Germany $w g

151 $aKonstanz
  551 $a Baden-Württemberg $w g
  551 $a Fürstenberg $w h
  551 $a Paradies $w h

151 $a Fürstenberg
  551 $a Konstanz $w g

151 $a Paradies
  551 $a Konstanz $w g

The authority that is displayed shows as the only entry of the 'tree' abvove the record in staff and OPAC. Links have been cataloged in both directions.

Screenshots from Owen on bug 21128 from 2018 suggest that the feature still worked at this time.
Comment 1 Frédéric Demians 2019-07-03 05:11:43 UTC
Do you have sample data?
Comment 2 Katrin Fischer 2019-07-05 06:15:14 UTC
No real data, just what is written up in the first comment basically, manually created test records.
Comment 3 Marcel de Rooy 2020-01-21 08:59:10 UTC
The feature needs an authid in $9.
The editor in authorities does not (or no longer) enforce the use of the connected authority plugin (for some reason). Allowing you to enter a name manually but if you do that, you won't have the link in $9 (and the tree cannot be built).
In master the icon of the authority plugin [three dots] has been moved. Very hard to see too. They are on the same line as the a for subfield and the field label Geographic name.

I would say: The feature is not broken, but the authority editor needs some attention at least.

Thx Marcel, I will try to give it another go.
