[EP-tech] Lift_embargos: Can't call method "current_repository" on an undefined value

Thanks John,

Your grep formula helped me solve the ?Use of uninitialized value in
string ne at (eval 65)? issue, but that?s not what is causing the script
to fail.

We are running Eprints 3.3.13 which is not concerned by the Apache 2.4
problem you mentioned (but thanks for the info).

I still suspect it?s something related to Apache config, I?ll investigate
this with our IT team.

Hi Robin,

*** Firstly, if you have moved from Apache 2.2 to Apache 2.4, make sure
your restricted documents are restricted!

*** There may be a change needed in

*** See: https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Feprints%2Feprints%2Fissues%2F322&amp;data=01%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7C3931be5440cc4d0a72ea08d76dcf9b10%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0&amp;sdata=vIu6kRSXz4SjFkQjJGB7OtqRSYGfWNxiwi7DDRL7AAs%3D&amp;reserved=0

On to your reported problem

I would check any 'commit' triggers in your repository config.

This might also help (it's a bit crude, but has helped me in the past) -
grepping for a 'ne' on line 48 of a repository's config:

grep -n ' ne ' archives/ARCHVIEID/cfg/  | grep 48

if that doesn't return anything, try other config locations  like

I suspect there's a commit trigger that either:

- works OK if there's an online session, but not from the command-line

- generates a warning that's ignored in an online session, but not in the
bin script - which then fails

Does that help at all?

Subject: [EP-tech] Lift_embargos: Can't call method "current_repository"
on an undefined value

Hello fellow Eprinters,

We?ve been running Eprints 3.3.13 and a modified ?lift_embargos? script
for quite some time without any issue. But we noticed lately that the
script has stopped working. It seems that it is now unable to commit any
changes. Running in debug mode, I can see that the script fails after
calling the ?$doc->commit(1)? line:

Lifting expired embargo on eprint #2957, document #41378 (2019-11-19)


149:            if( !$dryrun )

150:            {


151:                    $doc->set_value( "security", "public" );


152:                    $doc->set_value( "date_embargo", undef );


154:                    $doc->commit( 1 ); # pass force through to parent

Can't call method "current_repository" on an undefined value at
/usr/share/eprints/bin/../perl_lib/EPrints/BackCompatibility.pm line 443.

Looking at the code, I can see that the session information is passed to
the other functions, but it doesn?t seem to be working anymore as the
session is undefined when calling the method ?current_repository? on line
443 of BackCompatibility.pm:

return $EPrints::HANDLE->current_repository;

The only thing that changed in the last few weeks has been a server
upgrade (not sure what was the previous version but we are now running on
CentOS 7 with Perl 5.16.3 and Apache 2.4.6). Using the workflow to commit
changes still work without any issue.

Has anyone encountered this error before? Could this be related to Perl or
Apache?s configuration?

Thank you for your input on this issue!
