Description Ivan Necas 2015-07-22 07:32:01 UTC
Complete steps from beginning to end to reproduce (Firefox browser):

1)Create a product
2)setup multiple external repos for that product
3)do a mass sync (I had 4 repos updating in this case) which will cause a parent task with subtasks to get created.
4)click on the tasks tab for the product.
5)Click the sub-tasks link which will bring you to the subtasks page (screenshot attached).
6)Wait for the page to reload and watch the errors start.

As you can see in the latest linked example, on the first reload, I get 3 copies of the menu bar, on the subsequent reloads, the entire screen fills up as linked in the first post.

Fix merged into master https://github.com/theforeman/foreman-tasks/pull/126

Comment 8 Corey Welton 2015-10-02 21:19:33 UTC
So I'm not sure how we consider this fully fixed, necessarily?  At very least, need some clarification.

The steps above read:

6)Wait for the page to reload and watch the errors start.

As it stands, once I go to the subtasks page, I never, ever see another reload.  I attempted to sync six repos, and within the subtasks page, all of them showed up as "running"; "pending".  This never, ever changes however.  If I take the URL and open a new tab, I can plainly see that the sync has completed, so I interpret this as meaning the refresh on this page has been completely removed?

Is this the intended fix/result - that refresh on the page is totally removed, in order keep the redraw from occurring?  Or am I missing something?

If the former is the solution, it feels like a "hack", but I don't want to be hasty in assuming that. 

Attaching two screenshots - one showing the page, five+ minutes after sync initiated, never updating, and a second with the page reloaded in a different browser tab, showing completion.

reload of subtasks page in different browser tab, showing completed syncs.

  Please note that original tab never refreshe(s|d), showing things pending/running in perpetuity.

Comment 11 Corey Welton 2015-10-02 21:23:46 UTC
TL;DR: Should we expect the page to refresh (minus the broken menu bars) as the repos sync?  The bug seems to imply that, but the fix seems to remove any reloads altogether.

Comment 12 Ivan Necas 2015-10-05 07:57:32 UTC
On the tasks list page, the reloads were not implemented, both before and after applying the patches for this fix. This is regarding the task details page only.

Comment 13 Corey Welton 2015-10-05 20:02:46 UTC
So, on the individual task details page, I see refresh, and the menu longer keeps getting generated.  I suppose we can mark this verified.
