Bug Description

In 3.0.0:

When creating a new patron with a phone number that already exists on another account, no alert appears.

(On demo.evergreencatalog.com, I'm not seeing any dup alerts at all.)

OK, I'm having trouble with this alert, but it's different from what Terran described.

I do get the duplicate patron alert, but it only appears as you tab out of the text-entry box where I typed the phone number box.

As I hover over the link for the duplicate alert, the URL for the link looks correct. Unlike my experience with the e-mail duplicate alert, I can see there are search terms added on to the URL.

When I click the link, no record is retrieved and the link disappears.

Although this is different from what Terran described, I'm marking this bug confirmed since something unusual is happening with this feature.

I saw the behavior that Kathy is describing with one of the alerts a few days ago, but I don't recall if it was this one or not. It really looks like all of the alerts need to be reviewed for consistent behavior.

This appears to be happening because tabbing out of a dupe-searching field into another dupe-searching field creates a new search that "overwrites" the results of the last search. If you enter dupe data into a dupe-searching field, then click into a non-dupe-searching field, the link persists and the search works as expected.

Fixes pushed:


As noted in the commit, unlike the XUL client, this version shows search links per matching phone number instead of assuming the phone-based search should only search on the most recently entered phone.

Pushed to master and rel_3_0, along with a follow-up that fixes an issue with displaying the number of duplicate records. Thanks, Bill and Terran!
