Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: how to create a new group?

Posted by Gustaf Neumann on
The commands look fine; i tested just now
set instance_id [ad_conn package_id]
set id [application_group::new -package_id $instance_id -group_name "test 1"]
which returns 1508. In the DB i see
oacs-5-9-1=# select * from application_groups;
 group_id | package_id 
       -2 |        639
     1502 |           
     1508 |       1110
(3 rows)
so, all is fine. If you look at the error message, you have posted, there is the following line:
ERROR: duplicate key value violates unique constraint "application_groups_package_id_un"
... which means, there is already an application group with the same package_id in your system - there can be only one application group per package_id; check in your DB...

all the best
