Bug Description

MARC expert search of field 022 does not retrieve records for searches of complete ISSN. Observing problem in both 2.6 and 2.7 versions

For example, in 022 subfield a 0272-2003 returns zero results. Searching 022 subfield a 0272 retrieves 17 results including ISSN 0272-2003 (Southern Living annual recipes).

Also tried searching without dash: 0272 2003 and 02722003 retrieve no results. 022 |a search of just 2003 returns no results

Also same behavior for ISSN 1938-4831

I've seen this problem with special (outside of A-Z, 0-9) characters in general for MARC expert search since upgrading from 2.4 to 2.7. Marking as confirmed.

(Note that searching the identifier|issn: index would likely be a better, faster approach to achieve the same goal for this specific example, but that doesn't negate the fact that MARC Expert Search has a serious bug).

Changed in evergreen:
