Wikitech occasionally hides all your instances on Special:NovaInstance until you log out and log back in the wiki
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

The instance lists on wikitech's Special:NovaInstance stopped listing any of my instances, making it impossible to manage them such as adding puppet roles for MediaWiki-Vagrant.

Per Yuvi's suggestion, I logged out of wikitech and logged back in, and it magically began to work again. This is a bug that should probably be avoided, or else the error condition should be detected and an error message displayed instead of just showing no instances.

Original comment:

I can't figure out how to add puppet roles to a labs instance anymore, such as setting up the mediawiki-vagrant role on a new instance for server-side wiki testing.
The instance lists on wikitech no longer show any of my instances, so I cannot edit them there, where I used to add roles.
And I can't find any way to add puppet roles to an instance on horizon, which seems to be the new thing replacing the labs interfaces on wikitech.
If this is simply no longer available, then need a documentation update explaining what to do instead...

Instance list on wikitech showing no instances for ogvjs-integration project:

Instance list on horizon showing 3 instances for ogvjs-integration project (but no way to assign puppet roles):

Have you tried logging off and back on to wikitech?

I bet 20$ that'll fix the issue

@yuvipanda I owe you $20. This may be several beers or few, depending on what country we next meet in. ;)
