Bug #8277

Finding aid status on sidebar no longer works

It always says "Status: unknown" in the sidebar now, instead of the actual job status (the jobs run fine in the background/complete).

Expected result: it to tell us the correct status.

This was a regression from: https://github.com/artefactual/atom/commit/535470908038cdf2e0e20be308a6e3dbb77273d2

I marked this as 'high' since this bug also makes it so we can't see the Download link once the finding aid is generated, breaking the feature. It was an easy fix though, see patch above.

Hi Mike, I can't see how that patch will fix this problem. I think you are sending two null properties to the component, where they are populated after.

I haven't been able to fully test the status because I'm having an error in the generation, but at least the status changes from 'Unknown', to 'Generating', to 'Error'. So, I don't think we have a problem here, maybe it was a cache problem with the old partial (I moved all to an independent component/partial).

I'm taking a look at the problem in the generation, so far:

- It's happening in the test site too:


- It's a problem in the step where the EAD file is transformed with Saxon (the EAD file looks good):


- It looks like an error reading the temporary EAD file:

I/O error reported by XML parser processing file:/tmp/phpaKOXNL: Connection refused

- It happens with both models

Apologies, I think there's something really weird going on with my home VM. I tried the finding aid thing again today and it's totally broken again with no errors or any indication what's going on (my worker can't even pick up jobs). It's really inconsistent and confusing. I'm just not going to touch this feature on this VM for now... gl finding what's wrong.

I restarted my VM, ran the upgrade-sql task (I was on v.119 instead of v.122) and it works now ... And its also working in the test site. I don't really know what fixed the problem, sorry.
