    Advanced search "Starts with" doesn't work for 035 field

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: February Release
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct



    When I try to search for All titles with "Other system number" selecting Starts with (AT-OBV)99, I get zero results.

    The scope is to create a set containing records where 035 field is like (AT-OBV)99000211983020.


    The Alma Solr index does not support a 'starts with' functionality for a single word, but in a sentence.
    We suggests two solutions:
    1. Prepare a wider set and refine it with indication rule.
    2. Use Alma Analytics to filter according to the Network Number (a concatenation of 035 multi fields).
