I would like to make a suggestion: After selecting a profile make only
import-steps included in selected profile available.
Just to make sure you understand the current behavior:
- import_steps.xml is used for registering available setup handlers, not
available setup steps.
- Configuration files (like catalog.xml) represent the import steps
available in the selected profile.
- If the file is not available that means the import step is not
available and the setup handler has nothing to do.
Why would I like this?
I have a setup profile (prepopulating site, settting properties, etc)
and an install profile.
When updating to a new release only import steps of install profile
should be run.
It would be cake if the updater only has to select the profile, select
'all steps' and push the run button.
Curious to read comments.
Your install profile just contains files for steps that should be
So what goes wrong if you select 'all steps'? If setup handlers do
anything without finding their configuration files in the current
profile the handlers are broken.
thanks for your answer.
Following situation happened:
A 3rd party product installed via GenericSetup registered a setup handler. This
handler calls the quickinstaller install function, a function for populating
the site, etc. All without configuration files.
When I update my Product by selecting its profile and then select all import
steps, then the step registered by the 3rd party product is also selected and
run. For example the population of the site is run again and fails.
Oviously I do not understand why this step is present after selecting a
profile, this step doesn't belong to.
Maybe I mix up import steps and handlers?
