Hi everyone,

We have encountered an issue with opencast-13.2.0 where some events can´t be deleted in the admin-UI.

In the UI i can see that after i ran the delete-workflow theres still an publication on engage.
When i click to watch the video on the engage-player (paella) the video can´t be loaded.

Furthermore the event still holds two attachments: security-policy-episode & security-policy-series.

If i re-run the delete-workflow i can see the following in the logs:
2024-04-09T12:32:36,708 | WARN  | (RetractionListener:63) - The retract workflow "Delete" (id: 589147, created by: <user>, media package c127ccd2-be77-415b-8f6a-577d43f89956) has some non-retracted publications, refusing to orphan them.

This only happens with some events/videos. To me it looks like the two attachements are not deleted properly and cause this event to be stuck in the admin-ui.

Seems to be kinda the same issue like:

Does anyone have insights or ideas regarding this issue?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards

Dietmar Zenker

Also, do you have other warnings further above related to engage (might also be in the log of a different node)? It's odd that that is left over, since that should be retracted by the delete workflow. Maybe there's a problem...

Thanks all for your help, appreciate it!

Adding this did the trick, like Dietmar mentioned:
 <!-- Here you can place operations to retract publication from your publication channels -->
  description="Retract event from external api publication channel">
<configuration key="channel-id">api</configuration>
<configuration key="retract-streaming">false</configuration>
