products.classification_id has a different definition in an upgraded database than in a brand-new database


(Bugzilla :: Installation & Upgrading, defect, P1)




Bugzilla 2.20


(Reporter: mkanat, Assigned: altlist)




(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

The bugzilla-tip install on landfill has a classification_id with this
definition, in the products table:

classification_id smallint(6) default '1'

Whereas the Schema creates classification_id with this definition:

classification_id smallint(6) NOT NULL default '1'

This only happens when we create the raw database, not when we add
classifications to an old install, for some reason.

Yup, adding the new field to an existing database was inconsistent.

OK, then we also need to fix it for all the people who currently have it set
incorrectly in their DB.

Just a simple bz_change_field_type toward the end of the LEGACY CHECKS should
do it.

Attached patch temporary patchSplinter Review
Here's an updated patch.  I'm marking it "temporary" as it will always update
the field for every call.  The long term fix will occur after the
DB functions can correctly tell us when a field is set to "NOT NULL".

I don't like running this every time. :)  Let's find something detectable we can
tie this to before 2.20 ships.  Make sure we get a bug filed on that if there
isn't one already.

The repeating message will actually be solved by bug 285111, as will any and all
repeating messages of this type, because the installation checks will become
