Defect #17517

Attempting to Add a Related Issue Multiple Times Sequentially Causes 500

Resolution:Fixed Affected version:2.5.1


When pressing "Add" after typing a related issue, the form ajax submits but does not prevent further ajax submits while the request is being processed.

As a result of this, clicking "add" multiple times quickly will cause sequential requests to link an issue (after the first) to fail; along with this, the results of the last post are displayed (meaning the first successful add of a related issue may be hidden).

proposed patch:

The proposed fix has a side effect with Firefox (tested with 24 ESR):
  1. go to an issue, add a relation
  2. hit F5
  3. click on the 'Add' link to add another relation => the 'Add' button is disabled

Problem doesn't occur if step 2 is omitted.

BTW, I don't get 500 errors when hitting the button multiple times. I only get a proper validation error message. Can you post your 500 error stack trace ?

It seems that the data-disable-with attribute is enabled by default in Rails 5. There are some examples here.

Also, I tested this issue on the current trunk and works as expected in the major browsers (Safari, Chrome and Firefox) on OS X. I propose to mark this ticket as fixed by #23630.

  • Assignee deleted (Jean-Philippe Lang)
  • Target version changed from Candidate for next minor release to 4.0.0

Considering that the issue seems to be fixed in version 4.0.0 by the migration to Rails 5.1, I would like a second opinion before closing it.
