Did you happen to modify the VizAlertConfig at all, besides editing the parameter values? This error could occur if you removed pills from the Details shelf. I might suggest grabbing the VizAlertConfig viz from the original source code again, pointing it to the right postgres database, editing just the default_allowed_from_address and
default_allowed_recipient_addresses parameters, then re-publishing it.
If that still doesn't work, would you mind sending me your vizalerts.yaml file (with passwords and sensitive info removed), the VizAlertConfig workbook, and the latest log file from \logs? You can email them to me at
Working offline with Enrico and co to determine root cause here. Will update when I figure out what is breaking, and what needs to be done to prevent in the future.
I now ran through the script and was able to run the first test successfull. Now after testing with the Advanced Alerts Demo I am getting the same error in Papercut
Error instantiating alerts from list obtained from server: 'view_url_suffix'
Is semicolon ";" the standard separator character where you live, Jens? If so, it's the same issue Enrico had, and you can work around it by changing this line in vizalert.py to:
self.csv_reader = csv.reader(f, delimiter=';', **kwargs)
If you've got time, I'm testing a fix for this that should be in 2.0.1 that I hope to get out next week.
