To reproduce
  • Navigate to Manage > Physical storage
  • Make sure you have data that includes physical storage information (name, location, and type). Create a new location:
    • Name: FOO
    • Location: BAR
    • Type: Hollinger box
  • Save, and return to Manage > Physical storage
  • Search for BAR
  • Search for Hollinger
Resulting error
  • No results for BAR or Hollinger
  • Only physicalObjectName appears to be indexed
Expected result
  • All fields in the current physical storage module should be indexed and searchable via the Physical storage module's dedicated search box.

This search is done without ElasticSearch and currently the logic only searches by name, but it looks like physical object is indexed so it might be worth reworking this into an ElasticSearch-based search.

Looks good!

Minor doc update needed here in 2.5: https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/docs/2.5/user-manual/access-content/search-atom/#physical-storage

First paragraph states that only container names are indexed. We just need to remove that line.
