Intermittent "noPDF" errors on finding aids


Login to join this discussion, or follow the forum conversation!

We are experiencing intermittent errors with the PDF generation process on finding aid submissions. Starting sometime in March 2019, some finding aids did not generate a PDF -- instead, "noPDF" text appears where the PDF icon and link would typically appear.


We are currently troubleshooting the issue, but will be re-running the PDF process back through March to pick up cases where the PDF files did not generate.


Please feel free to report occurrences of this PDF generation error in the comments. Thanks!


We have this issue represented in our Pivotal Tracker operations queue -- work is in-progress to resolve intermittent errors with the PDF generation process: https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/165950529

This seems like a related issue, but I might be wrong about that. Last week I uploaded an updated finding aid for the Octavia E. Butler papers. The new version of the finding aid is live, but the pdf version hasn't updated. This is easy to see in the call number field -- it's mssOEB 1-8000 in the old version and mssOEB 1-9062 in the new version.


Thanks for your help!
