First Watch fails

Support Ticket


I'm getting an application error on the "watch" function.  If I first create <card>+*watchers as a pointer card, it is fine, but otherwise it says that "Basic" doesn't have add_reference in the logs

What are you doing that gives you the error? Are you creating the +*watchers card by hand? The card will be created (and set to Pointer) automatically if you click on the "watch" link in a card's footer. --John Abbe

No, just clicking the "watch" thing.


I think I fixed it in my version, patch to follow

Ah, looks like a migration issue. *watchers+*rform should have been created with the upgrade, with its type set to Pointer. That solves this without mentioning type explicitly in the code.

I thought it may have been migration related. When I was updating, I was thinking about which db the db:migrate changes. Is it all of them (test, production, development), or only part? I probably ran it only against development, but I'm not sure how this works.

  --Gerry Gleason.....Thu Aug 20 12:46:08 -0700 2009

yeah it only runs against one environment at a time, defaults to development. you can specify eg. env RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate

Thanks for the patch! it should only be necessary in cases where the migration didn't work for some reason, but awesome to have that fixed.
