Failed to save workflow schema, vRO HTML5 client exception

One of the major enhancements vRealize Automation 7.6 brings to the table is HTML5 functionality in vRO.


To name a few on what it brings to the table

  • Build , Import , Edit , Debug and Execute workflows from HTML5 interface

  • Create , update and use workflow configuration elements

  • Compare and restore different versions of the same workflow side by side

  • Enhanced dashboard and permissions for WebClient

  • Improvement in workflow run troubleshooting


But during one of two instances , i did see a problem with this new HTML5 vRO client where it does not allow you to save workflows



Issue is seen due to a bug in GA version of this component.


Let's see on how to resolve this problem


Step:1

Download JGit cli client

curl -k --output jgit https://repo.eclipse.org/content/groups/releases//org/eclipse/jgit/org.eclipse.jgit.pgm/5.4.0.201906121030-r/org.eclipse.jgit.pgm-5.4.0.201906121030-r.sh


Step:2

Move jgit to /usr/bin, set it to executable and change its owner to vco

mv jgit /usr/bin/ chown vco:vco /usr/bin/jgit


Step:3

Remove the HEAD ref of the master

mv /storage/db/vcodata/git/__SYSTEM.git/refs/heads/master /var/lib/vco/master_ref.backup

Step:4

Check where the HEAD should be cd /storage/db/vcodata/git/__SYSTEM.git jgit log

Get the commit ref sha from the first line. ex: 01bb5f58716dc12016b4fd8798c7fa8c91c76bf3

Step:5

Login as vco

su - vco

Step:6

Create the master ref

echo '01bb5f58716dc12016b4fd8798c7fa8c91c76bf3' > /storage/db/vcodata/git/__SYSTEM.git/refs/heads/master

Step:7

Run jgit garbage collection

cd /storage/db/vcodata/git/__SYSTEM.git jgit gc

Step:8

Login as root again and make sure everything in the git folder is owned by vco:vco

exit cd /storage/db/vcodata/git/__SYSTEM.git chown -R vco:vco


Step:9

Restart vRO server

service vco-server restart

Step:10

Create a workflow and then try to save it , it should work as expected
