When trying to create packages from snapshots with Composer 10.2.1, when I select the /Users folder and say to delete it, the dialogue box that comes up with "cancel" or "delete" hangs up the computer. The app is then totally unresponsive and I have to force quit it.
I experienced this 3 times. If I use composer 10.1.1 on the same computer I have no issues deleting the users folder.
What is the cause of this and a resolution?
Hello @mccallister I too ran into the same thing. What I had to do was delete Composer 10.2.1 and then, go to your My Assets Page of Jamf Nation. Under the Jamf Pro listing, look for the item, show previous releases. I ended up having to revert back to 9.101 which is working perfectly well for what we need. Something is wrong with Composer 10.2.1 and I believe there is a product issue on this as well.
Being unable to delete sources/folders is a known issue that we have filed under PI-005356.
If you have not already, please contact Support to get a case opened and attached to PI-005356.
As others have mentioned in this thread, the easiest workaround is to download an older version of Composer and use that for the time being.
Composer opening to a "snapshot" at 100% we've found to be an issue with Spotlight indexing hanging.
This thread talks about that a bit more, and the steps to fix the Spotlight issue can be found here:
We have not opened a Product Issue for that as it appears to be a problem with Spotlight indexing as opposed to a problem directly related to Composer.
If you have further questions about either issue, please contact Support.
