#10364 closed (fixed)

Incorrect error message given when role does not have create database privilege

Reported by: tylere Owned by: jbronn
Component: GIS Version: master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


If a PostGIS database role does not have sufficient permissions to create a database, the testing suite returns a misleading message similar to:

"It appears the database, test_database_name, already exists. Type 'yes' to delete it, or 'no' to cancel: "

This occurs because the _create_with_cursor() method in /django/contrib/gis/db/backend/postgis/ assumes that all errors in the method are related to a non-existing test database.

  • Component changed from Testing framework to GIS

This appears to only affect GIS databases, so I'm going to punt this to Justin's bailiwick. The fix seems fairly simple - we just need to print the exception obtained so that the user gets feedback on the underlying problem. The default creation backend already does this, so it's just a matter of porting the logic to somewhere near here
