Description Katrin Fischer 2015-05-05 12:44:08 UTC
Dobrica reported on bug 12412:

This bug will break Koha installation if there is no enable_plugins in koha-conf.xml with following error:

Can't call method "GetPlugins" on an undefined value at /srv/koha_ffzg/tools/stage-marc-import.pl line 206, <DATA> line 603.

This is not ideal, since it will break old installations.

Problem is line:


where Koha::Plugins->new() will return undef is plugins are not enabled.

It seems we also have same syntax in plugins/plugins-home.pl so it should probably be fixed also.


It's a little bit worse: plugins had to be enabled. Even adding


to koha-conf.xml won't help.

[PASSED QA] Bug 14148: marc import broken if plugins are not enabled

Bug 12412 introduced a way to use plugins to generate MARC records
out of any arbitrary format. But failed to properly check for
a valid configuration (plugins_enabled entry on koha-conf.xml, and
even the UseKohaPlugins syspref).

This patch makes tools/stage-marc-import.pl test for the required
configuration before attempting to create the Koha::Plugins object.

To test:
1/ Make sure you don't have a plugins_enabled entry on your koha-conf.xml file
2/ On master, browse to tools/stage-marc-import.pl
=> FAIL: You get a nasty "Can't call method "GetPlugins"..." error
3/ Apply the patch and reload
=> SUCCESS: Stage MARC for import page renders correctly

Repeat with plugins_enabled == 0 and == 1. Also UseKohaPlugins enabled/disabled.
It should work as expected.
