Description Fridolin Somers 2020-08-07 08:58:09 UTC
When using misc/export_records.pl --deleted_barcodes if barcode is NULL you get warn :
Use of uninitialized value in say at /home/koha/src/misc/export_records.pl

Also exporting barcode if empty string makes no sense.

Also exporting barcode if empty string makes no sense.

Test plan :
1) Delete an item with barcode = NULL
2) Run : misc/export_records.pl --date=`date +%d/%m/%Y` --deleted_barcodes --filename=/tmp/deleted_barcodes
3) Check you se no warn "Use of uninitialized value in say ..."
4) Delete an item with barcode = ''
5) Run 2)
6) Check there is no empty line in /tmp/deleted_barcodes

Logically makes sense and works as expected..

Passing QA

How is this --deleted_barcodes flag used?

I don't understand why it is in this script.

Why don't we display an empty line instead?
Imagine someone using it to know the number of deleted records (wc -l).
Comment 6 Jonathan Druart 2020-08-18 12:35:27 UTC
waiting for an answer.

Hi,

It is used to update a portal :
After exporting modified/created records, we exported a list of deleted barcodes to remove items from the portal (they may not be in a modified record).
Barcode is enough because other datas are fetched live via ILS-DI.

An empty line does not mean anything I think.
