I have this document:

* topic1
See topic [[topic2]].
See glossary [[topic2]].

* topic2
* glossary
** topic1
** topic2

What are ways to disambiguate the internal links? The first link should
link to the topic2 first-level entry, while the second link should go to
the topic2 entry under glossary. They both have the same title. One way I
know is using a unique dedicated target, e.g.:

* topic1
See topic [[topic2]].
See glossary [[glossary topic2][topic2]].

* topic2
* glossary
** <<glossary topic1>> topic1
** <<glossary topic2>> topic2

What are other ways available?

Regards,
BS

That's what I do in practice as it's robust to changes in headings and
is visible so I can remember the names.

You may also wish to consider CUSTOM_ID properties?

I almost always use a CUSTOM_ID property for this, e.g.

* topic1
See topic [[#topic2][topic2]].
See glossary [[#glossary_topic2][topic2]].

* topic2
:PROPERTIES:
:CUSTOM_ID: topic2
:END:

* glossary
** topic1
:PROPERTIES:
:CUSTOM_ID: glossary_topic2
:END:
** topic2
:PROPERTIES:
:CUSTOM_ID: glossary_topic2
:END:

Are there advantages to using CUSTOM_ID instead of dedicated target? I'll
stick with dedicated target for now, because it's shorter to type.

I personally find CUSTOM_ID's easier since I can make them
unequivocally unique, and by using them the links don't break if I
change something in the headline title.

I don't know other way, but I don't see what's wrong with this one?

Hi Bastien,

Sorry for replying too late (setup a filter on my Gmail account). Nothing
wrong actually, except it's a minor visual distraction. So far I've only
used a short unique tag like <<201009a>> (for today's date + letter) so
it's not a major distraction.
