dm4-contacts: suppress automatic geocoding when updating address topics from within a migration

Reported by: Malte Owned by: jri
Priority: Critical Milestone: Release 4.8.3
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.8
Keywords: Cc: jri
Complexity: 2 Area: Application Framework / API
Module: deepamehta-geomaps


From within a migration, it might be necessary to perform manual updates on existing "Address" topics, when updating an address topic the caller (up to my knowledge) can not easily append/create/inject a Cookie (e.g. "dm4_no_geocoding") into its update call.

Thus, when running such a migration i loose all my existing coordinate values in the to new ones from Google.

  • Priority changed from Major to Critical
  • Cc jri added

So, as it looks to me, "enhancing" the API this way is important for me updating and installing the kiezatlas2 to 4.8 in the couple of weeks. I know of a "workaround" (since this currently only affects a migration for which i could comment the geo-coder) but what is your take on this, is this easy to do?

Hi just wanted to ask again, since i will need to deploy this migration during the next week (final demo at 20.7) so: would a fix of this during the next two or three days be feasible? If not, i will find my way to deploy the migration without this, wouldn't be a huge deal.

Thanks for your help.

Today I could implement a runWithoutGeoCoding() mechanism (analogous to runWithoutWorkspaceAssignment()).
Would this be still useful for you?
Sorry for the late reply.

Thanks, yes, it certainly would be helpful if contained in the 4.8.3 release.
The only requirement i have is that i can make use this feature in a migration.

In 4682bbf797180d1b0d588eaf7e8d616ac7d83fc4/deepamehta:

Geomaps: suppress geocoding by code block (#980).

1 new method in GeomapsService:

<V> V runWithoutGeocoding(Callable<V> callable) throws Exception;

Executes the passed codeblock and suppresses geocoding for Address topics created/updated while execution.
Returns the value returned by the codeblock.

Note: suppressing geocoding by adding the dm4_no_geocoding cookie to the request still works.

Geocoding is suppressed if at least one condition is met: the cookie is present, or code executes via runWithoutGeocoding().

The latter is useful e.g. for code running in migrations.

See #980.
