API create object from template
the error message comes from the internal validation, but sadly it does not mention which category or attribute are responsible This might prevent one (or more) categories from being created.
I'll note this down as a bug - the error message should be part of the API response.
Could you check your validation and if the object does (aside from the affected category) match your default profile?
@lfischer The only validation we have is, that the object title needs to be unique. I have tried several object types like Printer, Monitor, Client but I get this error with all them. I tried different templates which I set as default but no chance. Every time the object is created, but none of the categories, no matter which template is set as default, are applied.
Here is a screenshot from our validation settings.
that's interesting - but I believe we should be able to reproduce this issue very easily. Are you using any placeholders in your object title (either the default template and the object you try to create)?
I will adjust the bug I previously created... I'm afraid I have no "work around" up my sleeve, so you might need to wait for a new API version.
I'll also create a feature request regarding "create object from template"
@lfischer No I don't use placeholders in titles of the objects/templates.
For testing purposes I disabled the validation/unique setting for the title and it's working this way - no error. But I need this settings for production, so I have to enable it again.
This bug definitely has something to do with the validation setting.
I would really appreciate if that bug could be fixed and if that feature request would be implemented.
@LFischer Are there already any news when a bugfix will be released?
sadly I have no updates yet, currently we are working on the i-doit 1.17.2 version which is going to be released shortly.
I believe after that we will check the API add-on
are there any new information?
Hi @kleinrotti ,
I'm afraid I have no new information for you Right now the team is working on the upcoming i-doit 1.18 version. There will also be a API release around that time, but it will not contain this feature.
And what about the bugfix for the default template? Even that would help me
again - sadly no updates regarding this topic
It's quite a while now but are there new information to this topic?
Unfortunately our workflow is not that good due to this bug. Every time we want to mass import ordered products from delivery notes with a tool, we have to disable the validation with a user which has the appropriate rights in i-doit. Afterwards we have to enable it again. This causes loss in time or if someone forgets to disable the validation, the products are not imported correctly and it has to be repeated.
Or is there a possibility to provide a pull request for the official API-Addon to provide a bug fix myself?
Did you check
system settings > Tenantsettings > Unique checks > object title
But I don't know if this is only valid for the Extras > import mechanism or for API as well.
Du you really need global unique titles in your daily processes? Maybe "Unique (per Object type)" is sufficient (but not sure if this triggers the bug or not)
