    Analytics Subjects field under Bibliographic Details cut off at 255 characters

    • Product: Alma
    • Product Version: Feb 2018 Release



    When doing analysis using the Subjects field under Bibliographic Details, the output display only shows up to 255 characters, often cutting off the string mid-term. I did an analysis checking the LENGTH() of the Subjects field, and I got many strings over 255 characters, many over 1024 characters as well. 

    Is this a display-only issue, and if so, is there a way I can show the full subject string? This will be very important for exporting and using the Alma Analytics API to be able to parse the full string. 



    This issue will be resolved in the May 2018 release.
