REST API: albums empty, but folders populated

Unread post by mbh » 03 Feb 2017, 20:32

Hi,

I'm the developer of the iOS "Subsonic" client play:Sub.

I have been investigating an issue for one of my users running a Madsonic6 server (6.1.8740.e4c6505.20161001.1002).
On this particular server, a lot of albums appear empty when loaded through the REST API (getAlbum.view)...
Album metadata is present, but no song details. For example:

Code: Select all

{
  "subsonic-response": {
    "status": "ok",
    "album": {
      "artistId": "349",
      "artist": "The Smiths",
      "genre": "Alternative",
      "id": "984",
      "coverArt": "al-984",
      "duration": 2792,
      "songCount": 10,
      "playCount": 0,
      "created": "2016-04-27T19:51:33.097Z",
      "name": "Meat is Murder",
      "year": 1985
    },
    "type": "subsonic",
    "version": "1.14.0"
  }
}
Locating the same album through the folder-based API gives song data:

Code: Select all

{
  "subsonic-response": {
    "status": "ok",
    "directory": {
      "child": [
        {
          "suffix": "m4a",
          "bitRate": 256,
          "title": "The Headmaster Ritual",
…
        }
      ],
      "id": "18485",
      "name": "Meat is Murder",
      "playCount": 0,
      "parent": "447"
    },
    "type": "subsonic",
    "version": "1.14.0"
  }
}
I have tried the above using both the Subsonic API exposed by the server (/rest/), and the Madsonic API (/rest2/) - both give the same results.

Is tere any known issues matching the above, or any things I can make the user try ?
Any and all input appreciated.

Thanks,
Michael.

I've received several error reports from users of DSub over the last few months as well

Thanks for the info Daneren2005.

Do you see any pattern in which server version(s) are affected?

Michael
