"axonated" tag throwing def errors
Christopher Hartley16th Dec 2019


I'm working through our def management process, and noticed this error during startup. I thought it was from one of our pods, but the developer that is currently testing Axonator on their pods said it was added by the Axonator app. Can you add the "axonated" def to your defs.trio file if that is the case? Thank you!

Hi Chris,

Axonator purposely does not declare a defs.trio file because the new symbol format throws errors and renders the extension invalid on older versions of SkySpark.

Axonator does, however, declare a tags.trio file which defines the axonator tag as seen under the Axonator Custom tags page. According to SkyFoundry in a response to the Unresolved tag symbol errors in 3.0.19 post, this should be sufficient to suppress the warnings.

As this appears not to be the case, if you can confirm which version of SkySpark you're using, I'll confirm with SkyFoundry the current status of tag warnings and consider increasing the version of SkySpark that Axonator is compatible with.

I'm currently working on v3.0.22! I can send along any additional troubleshooting information you need. Thank you!

Thanks, I'm verifying the situation in the Unresolved tag symbol errors in 3.0.19 post.

In the mean time Chris, as I know you use the cmd line for Axonation - you can use the -skipAxonatedTag option to prevent the axonated tag from being added to axonated functions.
