Description: There appears no way to find this record using the occurrenceID:

I propose we add a filter to support generic search by "identifier" where identifier might be catalogue number, occurrenceID etc.

Alternatively we should add occurrenceID at the very least, now they are becoming more useful thanks to the IPT mandating them.


Comment: There has been a *huge* demand for retrieving records by their occurrenceID in the TDWG 2014 identifiers workshop

Comment: Yes please! We are using occurrenceID as the primary identifier for our observation datasets, and have started removing the previously required collectionCode and catalogNumber (which always were an odd fit for observations) for older datasets. The only downside so far as they we wouldn't search records through the portal.
