Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a few of recordings in a series
2. Use Bulk Action to Edit Metadata on a couple of recordings and change the series
3. Use Edit Metadata on single recording and change the series.
The Series doesn't change
The series is changed on both recordings to that
Workaround (if any):
Individually edit the recording's metadata
Note the series is correct though if you go back to the editor, but not on the recordings tab nor the inspection page.
To my knowledge, bulk editing was never implemented for Opencast 2.x or higher, so this is actually a feature request, not a bug report
In order to get the metadata changed throughout the system: is it required to reapply the "Republish metadata" workflow after editing the metadata of a recording (eg. series, title, or whatever?).
If so, in my opinion this should be indicated to the unknowing user somewhere.
So the editing of a single episode now (with 4.1 or earlier) allows for changing the series.
It does not allow to remove the series metadata, though. Ie. using the "No option" list entry. So I can't remove the assigned series from an event (via the adminUi).
This behaviour is also reflected in:
Bulk editing (using the > < arrows) kind of works, but you have to switch to another series and then to the desired series in each recording modal.
Furthermore, the series metadata displayed is not correct, ie. the series entry looks the same for all recordings while walking through these via < >.
