We've been working on the issue of the authority linker not working for hierarchical authorities for months with ByWater, to no avail. 

If anyone has gotten hierarchical authorities to link automatically, we'd love to know what they did.

Subject: [Koha] Koha 3.22 authorities linking and hierarchy not working properly


We plan to use authorities linking and hierarchy in production to display thesaurus based topical subject authorities.

On a clean install of Koha 3.22 on Ubuntu using UNIMARC, we created 1 biblio with 2 topical subject authorities (biblio unimarc 607), the one being broader than the other and linked them.

Issue #1: authority link relations had to be entered manually (in 550$5 'g' and 550$5 'h') as they would not be entered using the authority finder plugin.

Issue #2: only broader to narrower terms show correctly when viewing the broader term's details with a collapsible + sign to display the narrower term, while in the narrower term's details view no broader term is displayed as linked.

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated, Andreas _______________________________________________
