EXCEPTION in TextFindField: basic_string::substr

Reported by: BQOeNRCCW Owned by: jls17
Priority: minor Milestone: 3.1.2
Version: 3.1.1 Keywords:
Cc: Blocked By:



I get an exception with this escalation. I cannot explain why it happens. The del_AR_EMAIL.htm looks good.
Can you see anything wrong in the def-file?

OS: Solaris 5.10
AR Server: 7.6.04 SP5 201308012025 (happened also with 7.5.00 Patch 006 201007180200)

I had already noticed it with version 3.0.3 but 3.1.1 still has it.

verbose log:

Escalation [xx-xx] 'del_AR_EMAIL': EXCEPTION in TextFindField: basic_string::substr

Thanks for reporting. I'll fix the issue soon.

Can you see anything wrong in the def-file?

Yes, the action of the escalation is wrong. This escalation can't do anything and if the escalation is executed, you should see errors in the arerror.log (at least if there are entries matching the escalation runif).

There are two problems:
1) the Application-Delete-Entry function needs two parameters: <schema-name> <entry-id>
2) The value "$Request-ID$" is passed as the schema name. I assume there is no such form on your server. But even if it is passed as the second parameter, it won't work, because you'll have no record with a entry id of "$Request-ID$" (it's quoted, because this is used as a normal string value). The correct syntax in the def file uses the field id, so you should see something like this:

   action {
      command     : Application-Delete-Entry "$-5$" $1$

You should definitely check, why nobody noticed this escalation isn't working and decide afterwards how to fix this!
