Database, submissions OJS 3.0.2

I am checking database of one journal and I found that in many cases submssions have NULL values in table submission_files in columns assoc_type and assoc_id.
Is that error due to unsuccessfull attempts to properly define submission i.e. section etc.?


Hi @vvucic,

That’s expected behavior – only some entries in submission_files will have an assoc_type / assoc_id. These are used in cases where the files are associated e.g. with galleys.
