[EP-tech] Subject trees

Hi all,

Anyone have any experience with updating the subject tree via the API?   (using 3.3.10 but current github module for EPrints::DataObj::Subject looks similar)


I’m trying to add a new top level entry with the following code snippet…


                my $rootsubj = EPrints::DataObj::Subject->new($repository,"ROOT");

                exit unless defined($rootsubj);

                my $newsubj = $rootsubj->create_child("newid",[{name=>"New Top Level Subject"}],0);


It creates the subject, but orphaned rather than linked to the ROOT object as I’d expect…

Any clues?
