Summary0020727: Error 1100 (issue not found) in my_view_page

Today I pushed a commit to Github that had a reference to an invalid bug number due to a typo (#20275 instead of 0020725).

Immediately after that, my_view_page started erroring out:
APPLICATION ERROR 1100 - Issue 20275 not found.

I repeated the error with $g_detailed_errors = ON (see attached) and it appears the error is triggered when timeline_api.php calls history_get_event_from_row() at line 48.

Additional Information

Issue is marked as private because I attach a dump with $g_detailed_errors = ON.

TagsNo tags attached.

Reminder sent to: atrol, dregad, vboctor

Hi guys, this issue is urgent as it's crashing the My View page at

I unfortunately don't have time to look into the root cause right now, maybe one of you guys can do it. Otherwise I'll do it tonight.

One more thing, I just ran the SQL statement in the ADORecordset

mysql> SELECT * FROM mantis_bug_history_table WHERE date_modified >= 1457966655 AND date_modified < 1458571455 ORDER BY date_modified DESC,id D

I think we possibly have 2 bugs here

  1. Source Integration should not attach a changeset / create a history entry for a non-existant bug
  2. The History API should not choke on an invalid bug ID

I'm not sure about where exactly we are failing in the my view page. But by design the history APIs don't expect to be given a bug # that doesn't exist. So I'm not sure I would consider this a bug. We could change that behavior, or per the other places, make sure we are passing in a valid bug id.

I've applied a temporary fix to our live instance to check the bug id in history_get_event_from_row() before doing work on it. That is easy to checkin, but the question is whether we want to increase the number of queries by doing such check per bug. I would rather just fix the cause of the data error which is the Source Integration plugin.

Thanks for fixing it Victor. I assume you added a bug_exists() check ? If that's the case it wouldn't increase the number of queries (use of the bug cache), so it's probably not a bad thing to keep.

That being said, I fully agree that we should look into the root cause of the error, i.e. the Source Integration plugin if that's what it is, and fix that.

For data cleanup purposes:

  • Identifying all Changesets referencing non-existing issues:

FROM mantis_plugin_Source_bug_table sb
LEFT JOIN mantis_bug_table b ON = sb.bug_id

  • Identifying all orphaned History records:

FROM mantis_bug_history_table h
LEFT JOIN mantis_bug_table b ON = h.bug_id
ORDER BY 3,2,1

I just fixed the Source integration plugin and updated it on our tracker.

Will do the data cleanup later; once done, @vboctor's temporary fix can be removed and this issue resolved.

@vboctor some thoughts on data cleanup before I go ahead:

  • There are 19 changesets referencing non-existing issues (mantis_plugin_Source_bug_table) that can be safely deleted.
  • These correspond to 19 matching history records, which can also be deleted without foreseeable risk.
  • In addition, there are 48 additional orphaned history records not originating from the source integration plugin. They have the following characteristics
    • bug_id = 0 (not sure how this could have happened)
    • this is all fairly old data (2007..2009)
    • 8 have type = 9 (FILE_ADDED)
    • the remaining 40 are of type 0 (NORMAL_TYPE), changes to 'status' field
    • these trigger the same error as described above (e.g. - that's period 2009-07-13 .. 2009-07-20)

I am not sure how these records were created in the first place, maybe they are leftovers from old bugs ? Anyway, IMO they can be deleted as well. Let me know your thoughts on that.

To be on the safe side and avoid future occurrences of this error, I would recommend to implement a fix like one you put in place per 0020727:0052822 (it is no longer on the tracker's repository).

I believe the overhead of the extra bug_exists() call is negligible, as it is highly likely that the bug will cached already, and we need to read the bug data in any case for subsequent bug_get_field() or access_has_bug_level() calls.

Let Timeline handle non-existing bugs

If an history entry refers to a bug that does not exist in the database,
history_get_event_from_row() throws application error 1100.

Even though it is not a normal situation to find orphan records in the
history table, the overhead of verifying a bug's existence at the
beginning of the loop is negligible, so it doesn't hurt to add the extra
bug_exists() check.
