Hi Jean-Marie,
I haven't tested this, but it might work...
In the view config, define a menu with the sub-field ('institution'), and 'allow_null' set to 0. Something like:

menus => [
    fields => [ "creators_institution" ],
    allow_null => 0,


PS (in case you don't know) you can re-generate just one view using the '--view' option with bin/generate_views

Hello all,

I want to create an author index that only refers to authors whose institution field is filled :
[cid:image001.png at 01D25607.E661BAD0]

How can we do that? I have seen the solution of Alan Stiles (http://www.eprints.org/tech.php/14651.html) but I can not manage to make it work. Maybe a problem with Eprints version? I work with eprints in version 3.3.12.

Thank you for your help.
