Description

On a RedHat 6.5, with an install that didn't work well but should have been repaired (user ncf-api-venv was created before installing the packages, but the home was not present, so some part of install were not done), we can save a technique once we restore the permission on /var/rudder/configuration-repository/techniques/ncf and 50_techniques, but we cannot read them
There is no error messages, and nothing to give a cue on what doesn't go as planed
There are JS error about null objects, so .size doesn't return anything, but I couldn't get all the error message.

I'm affraid i can't repoduce this, writing techniques works in latest version (2.11.10, 3.0.4), I will try again and again but i can't repoduce it!

ok, to reproduce it, i did:
create a virtual machine, and edited the /etc/passwd and /etc/group to add the line

ncf-api-venv:x:999:999:ncf API,,,:/var/lib/ncf-api-venv:/bin/sh

and
ncf-api-venv:x:999:

installed rudder 2.11
when to the ncf tehcnique editor, it failed
i thus executed

mkdir /var/lib/ncf-api-venv
mkdir /var/lib/ncf-api-venv/.cfagent
chown -R ncf-api-venv:ncf-api-venv //var/lib/ncf-api-venv

I could access the interface, but upon saving I got:

An Error occured! Unknown internal error during technique writing
Details: Cause: sub() got an unexpected keyword argument 'flags' Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/ncf/api/ncf_api_flask_app/views.py", line 136, in create_technique ncf.write_technique(technique,path) File "/usr/share/ncf/tools/ncf.py", line 519, in write_technique content = generate_technique_content(technique_metadata) File "/usr/share/ncf/tools/ncf.py", line 427, in generate_technique_content args = ['"%s"'%re.sub(r'(?<!\\)"', r'\\"', arg, flags=re.UNICODE) for arg in method_call['args'] ] TypeError: sub() got an unexpected keyword argument 'flags' 

which is not quite the error I had before, but much similar still

Do you have python 2.6 on your machine ? this is an error of compatibility in 2.6 (flags argument does not exists for re.sub in 2.6 )

This explains a compatibilty fix: https://code.google.com/p/pyfpdf/issues/detail?id=42
