Overview not visible

Issue #5 wontfix
eSolutions created an issue


I'm not able to see the "Overview" tab in STASH

System configuration: STASH 2.0 on my iMac java version 1.6.0_37 git version ReadMe Parser 1.1.1 Browser Safari, Google Chrome

My README.md file is located in the root folder of my project. I created the file using MOU and here everything looks just fine.

I have tried with readme.md, readme.markdown, README.md and README.markdown and still no luck.

In STASH I click on my project and then on my repository. Here I have the following options: [Files] [Commits] [Pull Requests] [Settings]

    The README.md shows up at the bottom below all files but still not in it's own window using a Overview button.

    Hi Michael,

    thanks for filing this issue! The display of the readme at the bottom below all files is a feature that Atlassian has added in the latest Stash version so that's nothing rendered from our plugin.

    I think we'll have to investigate in the problem described above.

    the client side seems to be working on a Mac with Chrome as browser. So we ought to take a look at the server side and running the Stash instance on a Mac. Is there any update from your side? Do the log files provide some more detailed information?

    Best regards

    Hi, no news from my side... I have also checked my logfiles but nothing about loading plugin here... if you need any other informations from me to get closer a solution just ask. Reason for running on my iMac is that I still have problems getting STASH started on my QNAP NAS (waiting for atlassian support to give me some feedback) but if I'm lucky and the installation on my NAS is starting to work I will test your plugin running on my NAS.

    Best regards Michael

    Ok I think we're going to run a stash instance on a mac and see if we're able to reproduce this error.

    Did you notice any Javascript errors? Are all components of the plugin activated (in the plugin administration area)?

    If you're modifying the loglevel in your log4j.properties e.g. by adding log4j.logger.com.pirateninjaunicorn=debug - do you see any specific output from the plugin?

    Hi, Tried with Firefox also... same result. Also no JavaScript errors. I know about Java logging but could not find any log4j.properties file. Tried to add the line to logging.properties but could not find any new log files when loading the server again so that might not work.

    Tried to launch in foreground and the result is shown below... hope it helps... there are a few warnings but I don't know if they can crash your plugin :-)

    Thanks for your quick feedback! :) I don't see anything specific from our plugin in the log excerpt - perhaps our tests on the same target platform will give us a hint.

    Do you have any other plugins installed? And to which version of java does "/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Home" point to?

  8. eSolutions reporter

    Hi, I have enabled the following plugins

    Atlassian Developer Toolbox ReadMe Parser Stash Commenter SVN Importer for Atlassian Stash

    /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/CurrentJDK/Home points to /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents


  9. Micha Kops

    Thanks! Since I've got no clue at the moment we could at least test if there's an interference with other plugins if the system tests on the Mac platform should fail :)

    I installed all mentioned plugins in my stash installation (linux) and got the overview tab and the readme file as expected. I guess the issue might be the stash installation on Mac, so we should try this next.

    Hi @thoeger69

    we just released a new plugin version 1.1.3 to fix another issue. Maybe this resolves your problem, too?

    Would you mind checking the new plugin version and giving us feedback how it works for you?



  12. eSolutions reporter


    Just updated the plugin to 1.1.3 and it's still not working :-(


    Regards Michael

    I'm getting the same issue - no Overview tab displayed.

    This is a new install of Stash 2.0.2 on Windows 2003, with ReadMe Parser 1.1.3

    Not sure if it's relevant but I'm running Stash from the command line, using the internal database (doing a trial of Stash).

    Hi @andym_cv , hi @thoeger69

    would you mind checking the logs for us again? There is a simple documentation on how to enable debug logging https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/STASH/Enabling+Stash+debug+logging for a running stash instance.


    curl -u admin -v -X PUT -d "" -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:7990/rest/api/latest/logs/logger/com.pirateninjaunicorn/debug

    Then open the root file list of your repository (the one which contains a readme file), which should produce some log entries in stash/home/log/atlassian-stash.log

    Your help is highly appreciated, thanks a lot!
