Summary

When aggregate records are selected within the Endeca Browser for a Record Spotlight Cartridge, the records that are saved/spotlighted are not representative of the selection made in the browser.

Example

A record filter has been created to filter specific aggregate records to return records for PDFs. The assembler security filter is: AND(format:PDF,TYPE) with aggregation on product_id. This is also set in the dataservice.json and endecaBrowserService.json. The rolled-up records contain different file TYPEs - e.g., PDF and HCB formats. When selecting the records in the endecaBrowser for a recordSpotlight cartridge, after saving, the expected records are not reflected. If a PDF record "Record.PDF" is specifically selected, "Record.HCB" may instead appear (or vice-versa, there does not appear to be a consistent behavior).
