    Attaching a build with a prospective fix for this issue. I'm able to deploy Bot metadata successfully with this build. Install it using Settings/Preferences>Plugins>Install plugin from disk (under the gear drop-down menu).

  2. Scott Wells reporter

    That's great! Let me know if you see any other issues. For now sit tight on this build (and get your coworkers onto it as well), and I'll post a new official build early next week that includes this fix as well as some others.

    @Scott Wells I am now in a state where I am getting the following upon deployment:

    5:07 PM Deployment Complete: Deployed 0/1 components to Dunkin (DEV) in 17 s 333 ms with status SUCCEEDED_PARTIAL.

    with no additional errors (I think typically there’s more information about the specific error here)

  4. Scott Wells reporter

    Matt, if you enable debug logging for deployment, is there anything more useful in the log? I'd like to see the raw deployment API response which should be logged at the debug level.

  5. Matt Casella

    Yes, there is an error. The XML is malformed somehow, but I would expect to see this error visible on deployment.

    Okay. I'll take a look and make sure that an error of this type is properly surfaced to the end user.

  7. Scott Wells reporter

    Matt, can you share what kind of error you'd introduced into the job XML file that resulted in this error being reported? I'd like to reproduce the exact same behavior so that I know that I've fixed it, and so far all of the errors I've forced in my job XML file have resulted in proper error reporting.

  8. Scott Wells reporter

    Deployment fix delivered in Still awaiting a reproducible example of the error reporting issue which will then be fixed promptly as well.
