#19245 closed Bug (needsinfo)

Form Wizard does not support all steps being conditionally skipped at the same time

I am using a form wizard that works with models in the database. After the form wizard is run initially, all steps in the form wizard are conditionally skipped until a change is made that requires the form wizard to run again. I do not want to ask the user to verify the record more than once.

I would expect the form wizard index view to redirect to the form wizards done/finished view. However, the form wizard index redirects to the first step even though it is skipped and I get an exception.

This seems to be caused by the assumption that the form wizard will always have at least one step that is not skipped.

I think it would make sense for the index to directly skip to the done_step_name if there are no steps.

Thanks for the report, but it's a bit difficult to work out what you're describing without a full example -- the stack trace is nice, but doesn't really help unless we can see the code that caused it to break.

Can you provide a minimal example that reproduces the problem you've found? If you can, please reopen this ticket.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
