generate_invite_link API endpoint throws 500 if invite already redeemed


(Greg Schafer) #1

The following error occurs

NoMethodError (undefined method `invite_key' for nil:NilClass)
/var/www/discourse/app/models/invite.rb:82:in `generate_invite_link'

on this line: discourse/invite.rb at master · discourse/discourse · GitHub

It happens when trying to generate a link for a user that has already been invited. Perhaps it should return a 422, as inviting by email does, instead?

I’m trying to call these API endpoints from another application, and would like to differentiate between “already invited” and “server error”. The discourse frontend handles it pretty well though:

Thanks for discourse being awesome!

Hmm good point perhaps @techapj can improve the return codes here for API usage?
