Dryrun on import data is not dryrun

edited December 2019 in Troubleshooting


Version of the software that is used, along with browser and version:
PHP 7.1
Providence release 1.7.8

I am running the import this way:

php7.1-cli bin/caUtils import-data --no-search-indexing  --source ~/incoming/fotos-data-sample.xlsx  --mapping fotos-import -f XLSX -d DEBUG --dryrun

But every time I run it, data is imported in the database :(


  • We've had another report of this. The issue in JIRA is We'll investigate after the New Year. You might want to watch that issue for updates.


  • Thank you! I will follow it ;) Happy New Year!

  • I found the issue: the parameter is not properly propagated to ca_data_importers... I am preparing a PR with it :)

  • I tried to add more details to the JIRA, but I don't have the permissions to do it.

    JIRA server response is doesn't have access to Jira on

    Will you please add me to the team?

  • You don't seem to be registered on JIRA. I've just sent you an invitation.

  • Thank you!
