Report an Encounter upload - no sighting ID created

In which Wildbook did the issue occur? ACW

What operating system were you using? Win 10

What web browser were you using? latest chrome

What is your role on the site? logged in as a researcher

What happened? On July 2nd, in order to demo the system to 2 cheetah researchers, we created user accounts for them and logged in as one of them to upload one of her images during the demo. Looking at that record today, I noticed that it doesn’t have an occurrence ID.

What did you expect to happen? I expect that each individual image uploaded via the Report an Encounter page, gets a system-generated occurrence ID if none is entered by the user

What are some steps we could take to reproduce the issue? Per above

If this is a bulk import report, send the spreadsheet to with the email subject line matching your bug report


You are right, there should be an occurrence generated for single encounter submission.
I’m tracking this under work ticket WB-670 and will update this thread when a fix is
deployed or with further diagnoses.
