Closed, ResolvedPublic


UploadWizard mwext-qunit job fails often recently with failures such as:

I think the problem is actually with 'checkStatus' test in /tests/qunit/transports/mw.FormDataTransport.test.js:

		postd = $.Deferred();
		poststub.returns( postd.promise() );
		postd.resolve( { upload: { result: 'Poll', stage: 'test' } } );
		assert.ok( !tstub.called );
		assert.ok( usstub.calledWith( 'test' ) );

This tests causes transport.checkStatus(); to call transport.retryWithMethod( 'checkStatus' ) internally, which fires another query… after 3 seconds timeout. If that query (which uses a mocked API, I think, and is thus synchronous) happens to start before unit tests finish, and doesn't finish before the end of whichever unit tests is then running, it will cause that test to fail mysteriously.

Change 208938 had a related patch set uploaded (by Bartosz Dziewoński):
mw.FormDataTransport: Make it possible to skip the 3000 ms timeout in tests

I'm going to bump priority since this issue is making committing code to UploadWizard super annoying for me so far.

At this point this doesn't seem to be caused by the CI infrastructure. Let me know if the issue persists. Can you reproduce it locally via grunt qunit via MediaWiki core with UploadWizard installed? Or via Special:JavaSciptTest/qunit/plain directly?

Yeah, it's a mistake in UploadWizard tests. I couldn't reproduce locally, but I think the patch above should fix it.

Change 208938 merged by jenkins-bot:
mw.FormDataTransport: Make it possible to skip the 3000 ms timeout in tests
