Unable to resolve method 'describeAutomaticCapability'.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When using the Diviner action Edit Book on freshly generated Phabricator books an exception appears:

Unhandled Exception ("Exception")
Unable to resolve method 'describeAutomaticCapability'.


Reproduction steps:

  • generate Phabricator books as suggested when you enter the Diviner application for the first time.
  • select a book (we used Phabricator Contributor Documentation) and select the Edit-Button from the Actions menu.

The resulting screen shows:

This looks pretty much like a common problem, but I didn't find any existing reports so far.

Basically nobody is using Diviner, and I don't think the "Edit Book" page actually does anything useful.

You could tag a project I think, but not sure what that actually did.

I think the major intent was being able to edit "View Policy" so you could create private documentation, but I don't recall if we got that far.
