Error when posting a pause node

#1

Postby ericb » Thu Jul 06, 2017 7:14 pm

In the past I've been able to post pause nodes with the workflow API, but recently all of my attempts have resulted in the error below, and I'm not sure what's different in how I'm trying to post them now that didn't occur in the past.

In short, the following line of code:

Code: Select all

system.workflow.api.post(fields._parentJobID.value, 'approvalWait', 'check if ready to continue', 'system');
generates the following error:
Exception in run: com.ebasetech.ufs.runtime.events.rhinojavascript.RhinoScriptException: Wrapped com.ebasetech.ufs.workflow.server.external.WorkflowManagementException: Script execution error: Cannot have any pending top calls when executing a script with continuations
Bonus pause node-related question: We've noticed that with a pause node set to repeat every minute, repetition stops after 100 iterations. Is there a hard-coded limit that a pause node can't repeat its code more than 100 times?

Which Ebase version are you using?

If you have an exception in your server log, could you also add this please.

Bonus question answer: no, there is no limit. 100 is a bit of a suspicious number

Do you have any hunches for why it could be stopping after 100? After the first time it happened, the 100 number was a bit suspicious to me as well, so we started another process and left it to see if it would stop after 100, and it did once again.

I suspect that the error is caused by the fact that the system activity node and the pause node script are both Javascript. This leads to nesting two Javascript executions within each other which is not allowed. You can see this in the stack trace. In which case this is a bug and we will need to fix it. As a bypass I suggest changing one of the two scripts from Javascript to FPL. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

I still don't have any suggestions about the 100 iterations. Obvious question but are you sure you haven't got anything in the pause node logic which is doing this?

I've created a barebones test process that also repeats every minute to see if that one stops after 100 repetitions, I'll see what that one does.

I also created another one to check if posting the pause node with an FPL script works, but I'm getting a different error. I don't really ever use FPL, so I'm not very good at debugging this.

This is the process and the pause node:

Image

I created a test form with a new script that just opened a job for that process. Here it is afterwards in the workflow admin:

Image

I then changed my test form to use an FPL script to post it, with the following code, which I think is correct:

Code: Select all

workflow post job 'JOB:PauseTest_1:1:1' testWait;
However I'm getting the following error in the server log:

Code: Select all

Your FPL command looks correct to me. It's gone wrong trying to load the job, it might be an issue with the case sensitivity of the Job id, in which case it's another bug. I can check this on Monday.

Should I try with an all-lowercase or all-uppercase process name?

Plot twist on the subject of the pause node stopping after 100 repetitions: It turns out it doesn't actually stop. Since my test process mentioned earlier was in my local version of Ebase, I could see the server log updating in realtime. The audit trail stopped at 100, but I can still see it running every minute.

So I checked the audit trail table to see if it was just limited to the 100 first entries, which didn't appear to be the case. I then checked the WF_AUDITLIST resource to see if there were any parameters to limit how many items were returned, which there is: AUDIT_MAX_ITEMS_FILTER. We don't have any scripts that set/change its value, and its default value was blank, so it didn't seem like it should have any effect. Just in case though, I set its default value to 500, and lo and behold, I suddenly got all the missing audit log entries.

With all that done, if the AUDIT_MAX_ITEMS_FILTER is not set, shouldn't the WF_AUDITLIST resource return an unlimited number of entries, rather than what seems like an invisible default limit of 100?

Try all upper case.

Yes, you're right - a hidden limit of 100 sounds pretty awful.

All-uppercase did indeed work, so looks like there's an issue with case sensitivity as you thought.

Are either of these bugs ever going to be fixed so that pause nodes can be manually posted? I've just had a case where a pause node stopped checking if it needed to run after a server restart, and since I can't post it manually, I'm going to have to cancel the job and restart it from scratch. This is in a production environment, so not something I like having to do.

A server restart should not have any impact on pause nodes - the time of the next execution is stored in the database and the system just picks up where it left off on a restart. It's possible your pause node had an error and was therefore in "Failed" state. If this occurs, it needs to be restarted with "re-execute" from the workflow admin app.

And yes, the bug that stops the post from working will be fixed.

In what table is that next execution stored?

Table workflow_workitem - this table acts as a queue for the workflow background process. The DUE column, if present, represents something that should occur in the future.

The first problem: "Cannot have any pending top calls when executing a script with continuations" when posting a pause node - is fixed in V5.4.0

The second problem: display of audit records has a default limit of 1000.
This is changed in V5.4.0 to 9999.
