Vault: reschedule failed tasks after a manual/non-manual resolution
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If i have a failed directory and i try to re-download it, on the web-app view it stays with the failed status.
This is related to the vault decision to make failures stick and not reschedule failed tasks.

For a better user experience:

  • The task should be rescheduled after manual/non-manual resolution and the link should be sent to the user (if email was provided)

AFAICT the vault sets the number of retries to 0 when scheduling tasks; A least-effort improvement would be to set that to a non-zero number.

Now with a new session I can relaunch a failed directory, but in an old session it keeps the error in the vault table view.

tenma moved this task from Backlog to In progress on the Vault board.

In addition to failed cooking retry, failed RPC calls are now also retried.
