Displaying an empty element in the metadata editor

Jo Cook
Hi List,

I've got an element that looks like this (in a profile based on ISO19139):

 <gmd:parentIdentifier xmlns:gco="http://www.isotc211.org/2005/gco"

This doesn't display in the metadata editor (in either simple or
advanced view) in Geonetwork 3.4. I haven't been able to test in 3.8.x
yet unfortunately. It also doesn't show if I activate the extra
elements (eg to show nilreasons). If the element is removed entirely,
then I get the option to add it, as I would expect. I have tried a lot
of different options for defining the element in config-editor.xml but
none seem to work.

Is this expected behaviour? I think I would expect to see at least
something to show that the nilreason is present, and I'd like a way of
adding a parent identifier (in this case) without having to edit the

What are my options to work around this problem, or is it known and
fixed in 3.8.x?

Many thanks


Jo Cook
