  • Navigate to a user
  • Go to description permissions
  • Add custom permissions for one particular institution - deny most permission (see attached screenshot)
  • Save, then go to browse > archival descriptions

Resulting error

  • Multiple descriptions belonging to other institutions are also missing.
  • In the demo data, when I applied this to Burlington (6 holdings), all of Sudbury (17 holdings) and several others disappeared as well.

Expected result

  • When applying custom permissions per institution, only descriptions linked to that institution are affected.
