#7298 Don't drop user related tables from Anitya's db dump
Closed: Fixed a year ago Opened a year ago by zlopez.

  • Describe what you need us to do:
    I found out, that Anitya's dump is missing these tables:
    "users"
    "tokens"
    "social_auth_association"
    "social_auth_code"
    "social_auth_nonce"
    "social_auth_partial"
    "social_auth_usersocialauth"

It will be better if you can just leave these tables empty instead of dropping them entirely.

  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)
    Asap

  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)

  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?
    Current development environment for Anitya is using production dump and without these tables you are getting error every time application works with user (login, check if admin etc.)

@zlopez This is the commit that made the change:

https://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/cgit/ansible.git/commit/?id=f0c596c427cc591148634d31cbe521579fc462ff

You may be able to adjust it to insert the empty tables you desire, or you may be able to adjust the development environment to do so.

I got advice from @mizdebsk on IRC, that this could be done by running sed '/COPY table_name /,/\./d' on dump. Is this possible, when the tables were excluded from actual dump?

The database dump is a text file, so there are a variety of ways you
could edit it to add an empty version of the table to it.

Ok, I will then just play with it.

My idea was not to exclude these tables from pg_dump, but instead truncate them on-the-fly, eg with sed, i.e. replace pg_dump -T users $DB | ... with pg_dump $DB | sed '/COPY users /,/\./d' | ...

Note that these were dropped for security reasons, so make sure sensitive data isn't being published.

I think we can switch -T to --exclude-table-data for these tho and have the table exist, but have no data in it. Would that work?

I've proposed a freeze break to do this (since db01 is frozen).

This is in place and theres a new dump that should be correct.

Let me know if it's not. :suspension_railway:
