I'm using Drupal 8.0.2 and I'm trying to create a glossary of taxonomy terms by name. I have setup the view as follows:

  • Unformatted list
  • Fields: Taxonomy term: Name
  • Filter: Taxonomy term: Vocabulary (= Fruit Name)
  • Sort: Taxonomy term: Name (asc)

Stopping here the preview shows all Fruits by name (a-z) as expected.

Now when I add the following Contextual Filter:

  • Taxonomy term: Name
  • Type: Fixed
  • Fixed value: a
  • More: Glossary mode
  • Character limit: 1

The preview is empty, and the page returns a 500 error. I have done this successfully many times using Content: Title, but it never works using Taxonomy: Name. Can anyone tell me why this won't work using taxonomies?

This appears to be a bug in D8 core. Here is a link to the issue:
