Mail Notifier python error in twisted file "unbound method._init_(.."
|Reported by:||saqub01||Owned by:||ssa|
I am a completely new user to Python and BuildBot. Currently I am using an e-mail alert when the BuildBot build status changes (moves from success to fail, or vice versa), and failing will e-mail every time there is a failed build. I am encountering the following Python error when sending an email is attempted.
--- <exception caught here> --- ESMTPClient.init(self, secret, contextFactory, *args, kw) exceptions.TypeError??: unbound method init() must be called with ESMTPClient instance as first argument (got ESMTPSender instance instead)
I have found some examples of this error online when searching for an answer, including
You just need to pass 'self' as an argument to 'Thread.init' and calling the super class
but I am still unsure why there is an error. I would appreciate any guidance/help on why this error has occurred and how to go about resolving the issue. I am not the author of this code so I am unsure of what to be looking for to solve the problem.
The email was working before the following code was changed from gmail account to company account.
sendToInterestedUsers=False, mode=('change', 'failing'), relayhost="smtp.company.lan", useTls=True, smtpUser="lbuilder", smtpPassword="password"))
Here's the block of code producing the exception:
class ESMTPSender(SenderMixin?, ESMTPClient):
requireAuthentication = True requireTransportSecurity = True def init(self, username, secret, contextFactory=None, *args, kw):
self.heloFallback = 0 self.username = username
if contextFactory is None:
contextFactory = self._getContextFactory()
ESMTPClient.init(self, secret, contextFactory, *args, kw) self._registerAuthenticators()
