[Steemplus API] [v1.0] [Bug-Report] Not counting SPP for transfers to postpromoter

in utopian-io •  12 days ago

Project Information

Expected behavior

SteemPlus Points (SPP) should be rewarded for various activities, such as promoting your post with minnowbooster or postpromoter.

Actual behavior

Only transfers to minnowbooster are counted. This is caused by a wrong condition in the sql statement that the job uses to calculate the points.
Other activities to earn points like setting steemplus-pay as a beneficiary still works as expected.

How to reproduce

  • Send 1 SBD to postpromoter
  • Wait 1 hour so that the job runs
  • Check the API to see that your points weren't updated and the transfer wasn't included.


The solution is very simple.
In the SQL-Statement one has to replace the [from] with a [to].
Turning from this:

To this:

Another indicator that "to" is the right field to use is the fact that later the field is later used to determine the type of transaction.

I would have made a Pull-Request for it, but after telling @cedricguillas (who is in charge for this function) what and where the problem is he immediately started working on it. (Making a PR and juggle with the issue would probably be just more overhead than quickly replacing the word himself. )

It is somewhat difficult to see , but my points weren't increased and only the transfer to minnowbooster which I had before was counted.

Like mentioned I contacted @cedricguillas about this issue. He confirmed the bug and implemented my suggested solution. (Unfortunately before I could ;) )
