REST getIndexes returns empty while scanning

Postby switz » Thu Jan 10, 2019 8:54 am

I'm on the latest version (6.1.5) and when my server is scanning, the getIndexes endpoint always returns empty. It's fine after scanning is complete.

This is only an issue because I'm running on a raspberry pi so scanning is slow (no big deal), but it means that during the scan, apps like iSub return nil artists.

The REST endpoint getArtists still returns the full list, but I presume iSub uses getIndexes, if that provides extra helpful info in any way. I'm also using postgres as the database, for a bit more info.

Here's my about page after I just started a scan, check out the Media Collection section. It seems like it clears out the collection somehow, even though on the website everything still shows up normally:
