Precondition failed cryptic error
|Reported by:||arun.planemad@…||Owned by:||team|
|Version:||latest||Keywords:||precondition failed changeset conflict|
I got the following error while uploading the last few objects out of a 3000 object changeset while doing some offline mapping in a remote part of India. I have no idea what it means or what can be done.
Uploading to server failed because your dataset violates a precondition. ResponseCode=412, Error Header=<Precondition failed: Way requires the node with id in (XXXX,XXXX...) which either does not exist or are not visible.>
There must atleast be an option to exclude the affected objects from the changeset so that it can be resolved at a ater time or just dropped off completely if it is trivial. I have had such precondition failed messages before and I resolve it with great difficulty by manually editing out such objects from the .osm file by searching for them with specified id#. And because i cannot copy past text from the error dialog box, the task is extremely tedious and frustrating.
I can just imagine the frustration of someone new who has done a lot of mapping and suddenly faced with this error with no further information on how it can be resolved.
