The LeafData API has a pretty serious issue. A request indicates success however, the operation is a failure. This is on top of the gateway-timeout and other service availablity issues they had. The Request and Response POST /plants/update { "plant": { "global_id": "WAJ499999.PL18QN4", "global_area_id": "WAJ499999.AR1T0I", "global_batch_id": "WAJ499999.BA54W6S", "plant_created_at": "2018-04-09 00:00:00", "origin": "inventory", "stage": "growing" } } { "additives":"", "created_at":"04\/09\/2018 11:20am", "deleted_at":null, "external_id":"", "global_area_id":"WAJ499999.AR1T0G", "global_batch_id":"WAJ499999.BA54W6S", "global_id":"WAJ499999.PL18QN4", "global_mme_id":"WAWA1.MMF5", "global_mother_plant_id":null, "global_strain_id":"WAJ499999.ST6MEK" "global_user_id":"WAWA1.USDK", "group_name":"", "is_initial_inventory":"0", "is_mother":"0", "last_moved_at":null, "legacy_id":null, "notes":"", "nutrients":"", "origin":"inventory", "pesticides":"", "plant_created_at":"04\/09\/2018", "plant_harvested_at":"", "plant_harvested_end_at":"", "stage":"growing", "updated_at":"04\/24\/2018 01:13pm", } Notice here that while we requested an update to the Area of AR1T0I the response still indicates Area AR1T0G.

Yet another failure by MJ Freeway / LeafData in their endavour in Washington. It appears that on March 25th, at 6:45 AM UTC (about 22:45 Seattle Time) there was an update deployed to the LeafData system. This time, they’ve mangled the date formats so badly that their own preferred language (PHP) has difficulty interpreting it (strtotime). No release notes were included, this change was not announced. Date Format History Back in December of 2017, before this dumpster fire was even launched (it was in it’s first delay period) I requested that MJ Freeway format all dates using the ISO 8601/RFC3339 standard format.

Today the WSLCB and MJ FailWhale/LeakData have once again demonstrated their incompetence and negligence. Mary Mueller, the CIO of the LCB sent this out today (we received at 18:31 Pacific Time) Good evening, gang, I know that we were hoping to get this out earlier, but I wanted to let you know that we did find a couple of defects in release 1.35.4.1. Due to the severity of the issue to be fixed, I have reluctantly approved this to roll to Test ASAP and Prod tonight.
