Question

Why doesn't a Front End search find the same record found using a permalink?

Answer

When resolving a permalink, it does go to the desired record.
However the Primo Front End displays the default scopes and tabs, even if the desired record can only be found when searching in a non-default scope or tab.

Additional Information

This is due to the known issue A dlDisplay.do URL with the search_scope parameter does not change the selected Tab or Search Scope.
