"Uncommitted Changes" Badges

  • This morning I brought down a customer’s Iguana instance to purge the log files. When I restarted it and logged into the dashboard, many of the channels showed “uncommitted changes” flags/badges/icons. When I examine the file history for the translators, though, no differences are reported.

    I touched nothing but the logs directory in the Iguana base directory.

    Is there a way to clear these (apparently erroneous) badges without opening each translator and creating a new milestone? Is there an explanation for this issue?

    Thanks!

    Which version of Iguana are you using Jeff? There was some major improvements with how fossil is invoked in the back end of Iguana to update these badges in a more efficient manner. No good deed goes unpunished though 🙁 So there this might be an edge case created with some of those changes.

    Bret thinks this issue may have been patched in 5.6.12. So if you install a version of Iguana after that time it should resolve this. 5.6.15 I know has some improvements to the checks that Iguana makes when it starts up and validates that the deployed code in Lua is up to date. Stopping and starting Iguana should make the issue go away.

    This customer is still running 5.6.8, and we’ve been unable to upgrade due to an environment freeze for a pending go-live. I’ll bring this up with them and see if we can get their QA environment upgraded now that the bulk of the validation testing is completed.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm. The improvements to fossil status checks were not present in that version. Upgrading and re-starting the server should resolve the issue and give you a lot of other benefits. The old algorithm had a lot of overhead updating all those little badges. The latest one is much more efficient. It seems small but it has a really nice improvement on dashboard performance.

    The whole version control system is getting a lot of love in Iguana 6.0. Part of that will be making those badge icons more useful in terms of indicating what has really changed and so on:
