#1504 closed defect (wontfix)

get_last_id() causing an error and sequence question

Reported by: brian@… Owned by: Anton Stroganov
Priority: normal Component: MantisImportScript
Severity: critical Keywords: currval, seqence
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


This line was giving me an error.

return self.db().get_last_id(c,'ticket')

psycopg2.ProgrammingError: currval of sequence "ticket_id_seq" is not yet defined in this session

This seems utterly wrong to me since i can select currval('ticket_id_seq') via psql. It's not used so i commented it out.

On a slightly different note, are the sequences in postgresql set correctly after all tickets, comments, stuff are inserted?

I ran into this as well.

The problem is that currval of a sequence id is a a session-local value. It cannot be retrieved unless nextval has been called for the current session.

I fixed this by modifying: /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/trac/db/

to call setval, max(id) first to update the sequence value for the session
