web API of 'action=parse' get a error of ParserOptions
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I used the api to get sections information to build my custom toc.

/w/api.php?action=parse&format=json&oldid=<the oldid>&prop=sections&disablelimitreport=1

But a few days age, I found it didn't work and I checked that it gets a error.
It says:

[WT81eApAAE4AAAUL8GwAAABB] Exception caught: The supplied ParserOptions are not safe to cache. Fix the options or set $forceParse = true.

It seems like it's a error of mw parser's ParserOptions which it can't be configured by the interface of the web API. Maybe it need to be fixed.

I check it again in APIsandbox, and I find that it will work again if I remove the option 'disablelimitreport'.
