Smart Action - Prefill a form with default values not working in Production

Feature(s) impacted

Smart Action - Prefill a form with default values, using the hook feature

Observed behavior

The input is prefilled in development environment but when I try it in production, it does not work anymore.
Forest throws the following error : An error occured on form load. Check your server logs for more details.

Expected behavior

I expect the input to prefill the value, which is the actual behaviour in development.

Hello @juliepierre ! :wave: Welcome to our community :tada: :confetti_ball:

Thanks for this detailed thread. :pray:
I just need a few other information to help us find the culprit.

  • Can also provide the details about the error received from your agent, it would help ? This can be done using the developer tools of your browser → Network tab.
  • Could you, also, share the code of the smart action load hooks ?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

Hello Morgan !

Sure, there you have. FYI, I reproduced the issue on my staging environment, so here you will have the details from my staging app, but it is exactly the same issue on the live app.

The code of the smart action with the hooks

action "Créer un Versement Membre",
    type: 'single',
    fields: [
      field: 'Montant en centimes',
      description: "Renseigner le montant du Versement Membre en centimes",
      type: 'Number',
      is_required: true
      field: 'Description',
      description: "Ajouter une description",
      type: 'String',
      is_required: true
    hooks: {
      :load => -> (context){
        description = context[:fields].find{|field| field[:field] == 'Description'}

        id = context[:params][:data][:attributes][:ids][0]
        transfer_code = TransferCode.find(id)

        description[:value] = "Versement #{transfer_code.member.company_name} #{transfer_code.validity_month.strftime('%m/%Y')}"

        return context[:fields]

Hey @juliepierre :wave:

The logs you mentionned in your first message indicate ActionController::InvalidAuthenticityToken.
Would it be possible to see the associated code ? (As DM if you consider it private, here otherwise)

Thanks :pray:
