Rule not running until forced Sun Apr 14, 2019 4:07 pm • by GeekNeck
HI,

I have found that a rule chain that has worked previously is now not completing. Files get moved from one directory to another, then a new rule renames the files then moves them to a different folder. Hazel did not recognize the files at first, but operated on them correctly when I forced it. Any ideas? Here is the log surrounding the directory in question.

I am running Hazel 4.3.5 on Mojave 10.14.4

Can you post logs when the files were supposed to be processed but weren't? It might help if you turn on debug mode: https://www.noodlesoft.com/kb/hazel-debug-mode/

I was able to reproduce by placing a similar file into the first directory to be processed. I see that all goes well until processing of the folder "2.HazelSort". I also see a reference to an odd scheduling time:
requestedSchedulingTime = "4001-01-01 00:00:00 +0000";

Is this the file you are referring to?
StatementPDFServlet.pdf: Did not match any rules.


If so, then it's not matching your rules. Try using the preview function to see why it isn't matching when that happens.

But it does match in the Hazel Pref Pane. I don't know how to attach a screen shot, but I'm looking at the preview for 2.HazelSort. It says StatementPDFServlet.pdf matches a rule. If I "Run Rules Now" It will be processed.

This rule has been running fine with no modification for a number of months.

What is the rule? Maybe it doesn't match at first but something happens later?

It turns out that a reboot did the trick. Once I logged into my account, Hazel kicked in and moved the file. Thanks!
