Fix blank options in finder filters

On finder pages, facets on the left hand side can be populated from “link” fields in the search documents, like people, organisations, topics.

If the pages for those things don’t themselves exist in search, finder frontend won’t be able to fill in the titles:

People facet with blank options

This can be detected by the Finder Frontend feature in Smokey. An example error would be And I should see a closed facet titled "People" with non-blank values.

To fix the issue:

  • Inspect the blank options using your browser developer tools to work out which pages are affected
  • Republish those pages in whitehall
