I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

Description

This source text without any glossary reference puts aliases into the document glossary:


\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{glossaries-extra}
\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{main}{
name={main},
description={Main entry}}

\newglossaryentry{alias}{
name={Alias},
description={\nopostdesc},
alias={main}}

\begin{document}

\printglossaries

\end{document}

MWE

Download (294B)

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage{glossaries-extra}
\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{main}{
    name={main},
    description={Main entry}}

\newglossaryentry{alias}{
    name={Alias},
    description={\nopostdesc},
    alias={main}}

\begin{document}

    \printglossaries

\end{document}

Evaluation

This is a feature of all the cross-referencing keys (see, seealso and alias). See Why does the see key automatically index the entry?

Use autoseeindex=false if you want to prevent the automatic indexing (but you will then have to manually apply the cross-reference indexing with \glssee):

\documentclass[]{article}
\usepackage[autoseeindex=false]{glossaries-extra}
\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{main}{
name={main},
description={Main entry}}

\newglossaryentry{alias}{
name={Alias},
description={\nopostdesc},
alias={main}}

\begin{document}
\gls{main}\glssee{alias}{main}

\printglossaries

\end{document}
