Has anyone seen the bug where an observation did not initially upload with a photo due to an app glitch. Then user gets to properly adding the photo (Yay!), but now we can’t add the observation to a project (that requires evidence) with the error message “Didn’t pass rule: must have a photo”?
It has a photo now, so you would think that would update and no longer restrict us from adding.
If the problem still persists, try faving and unfaving the observation (and then re-fave if so inclined!). According to staff, this forces an observation to be reindexed throughout the system, and might just fix this particular issue too. Wait about 5 minutes, then try adding to the project again.
As things are added and edited in iNaturalist, a lot of background data re-indexing takes place all the time to support all the query functions on iNaturalist, and most of it is queued and can take several hours to complete after a change. This is a way to make it happen faster for a single observation.
