12:25 pdurbin bencomp: I think we're both going to be on vacation for roughly two weeks. maybe we can ask sivoais or skay or mjturk to welcome people and direct them to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/dataverse-community :)
12:28 bencomp pdurbin: you mean you will be *offline*?! ;)
12:30 pdurbin bencomp: I'll be on a tiny island
12:30 pdurbin searchbot: lucky block island
12:30 searchbot pdurbin: http://www.blockislandinfo.com/
12:31 pdurbin not sure how much internet I'll have
12:32 bencomp I hope it's not enough for a ssh connection ;)
12:33 bencomp it doesn't look like minecraft, btw :P
12:35 pdurbin heh
12:58 bencomp "Command edu.harvard.iq.dataverse.engine‚Äč.command.impl.AssignRoleCommand@35d292ed failed: null"
12:58 bencomp hmm
12:59 bencomp happens when I POST a role assignment a second time
13:04 bencomp pdurbin: there's no support for parsing the dataverse affiliation or category currently in the API, is there?
13:17 pdurbin bencomp: I hate it when commands fail with null as a message >:(
13:17 pdurbin bencomp: have you tried getting a dataverse object as JSON? I'm not sure what's in there
13:20 bencomp pdurbin: hence my comment https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/issues/2174#issuecomment-133422000 :)
13:21 pdurbin bencomp: right. but what does "level of requiredness" mean?
13:21 bencomp in a normal GET I see general information
13:21 bencomp "will your command fail if X is missing"
13:21 pdurbin oh
13:21 pdurbin required parameters
13:22 bencomp is "don't bother, we'll ignore this completely" also a form of "required"?
13:23 bencomp as I put affiliation in my request but it's ignored
13:24 bencomp JsonParser.parseDataverse doesn't look for it
13:26 bencomp a GET on a dataverse gives me: id, alias, name, affiliation, dataverseContacts, permissionRoot, ownerId, creationDate and creator
14:02 pdurbin bencomp: you're reminding me that you can't use the API to specify a category for a dataverse: https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/v4.1/src/test/java/edu/harvard/iq/dataverse/api/SearchIT.java#L216
14:03 pdurbin which is a bummer
14:07 bencomp pdurbin: indeed. btw, why did you write https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/v4.1/src/test/java/edu/harvard/iq/dataverse/api/SearchIT.java#L231 instead of insisting that it equals the thing you want? if a correct test fails, you must fix the code
14:07 bencomp now you seem to expect a bad thing
14:10 pdurbin yeah, I'm expecting null
14:12 bencomp https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-driven_development
14:12 bencomp did you know there's assertNull too?
14:13 pdurbin yep
14:16 pdurbin bencomp: sorry, doing many things. trying to wrap up and I'm only working a half day
14:17 bencomp pdurbin: cool, no worries. Before I forget: enjoy your vacation!
14:26 pdurbin bencomp: thanks! you too
