TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

  • Ralph

    Hi Roberto,

    today I've upgraded to testman4trac 1.5.2 because I got the TypeError in previous version of testman4trac when clicking on test case title to display the descroption.

    But I found the same error in the latest version.

    Stack trace is below:
    2013-04-01 15:06:53,581 Trac[main] ERROR: Internal Server Error:

    tp_search['page_name'] = 'TC_TT' + tcat['page_name'].partition('TC_TT')[2].partition('
    ')[0] + '%'
    AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'partition'

    I got the source code and added some small improvements.
    One near line 424:
    summary = str(test_case.title)

    And the next near 869:
    tcat_page_name = str(tcat['page_name'])
    # Go up to outer enclosing Test Catalog
    tp_search['page_name'] = 'TC_TT' + tcat_page_name.partition('TC_TT')[2].partition('_')[0] + str('%')

    Now I'm able to display the testcase description.
    I'm not familiar with Python (using Java wherever it's possible). Perhaps you can find a better solution for my workaround.

    Thank you for lots of work in TestManager4Trac!

    Best regards,

  • Hi Ralph,
    thanks a lot Ralph for your fix.

    In the next release, which is about to come out, I'll try to better handle the case when the title is null.

    Thanks for your interest in this plugin. Ciao,
