Description

Our digital objects are stored in the filesystem organized by institutions. Each institution has its own directory and it's represented by its slug or permalink. The slug column in the db is a varchar(255) and AtoM started truncating the slugs to 235 characters in v1.3.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create a new institution with the following authorized form of name: "university of british columbia library rare books specialcollections university of british columbia library rare books specialcollections university of british columbia library rare books specialcollections university of british columbia library rare books specialcollections"
  2. Create a new archival description and link to the institution above
  3. Link a digital object to the new archival description

History

#1 Updated by José Raddaoui Marín almost 9 years ago

I couldn't reproduce this issue. The slug and the folder name are truncated, but linking digital objects works as expected. I tried linking an upload file, an external url and importing multiple files (see screenshot).

  • Status changed from QA/Review to Invalid

Like Radda, I tried several different times to reproduce, and found that though the slug truncated, everything still worked. Marking invalid for now.
