I am using Drupal Commons (7.x-3.46).. Whenever trying to "break contact" of a trusted-contacts, I get an error:

An AJAX HTTP error occurred. HTTP Result Code: 500 Debugging information follows. Path: /batch?id=19&op=do StatusText: Service unavailable (with message) ResponseText: EntityMetadataWrapperException: Invalid data value given. Be sure it matches the required data type and format. Value at og_membership(): . in EntityDrupalWrapper->set() (line 756 of C:\Users\USER\Sites\commons-7.x-3.46or\profiles\commons\modules\contrib\entity\includes\entity.wrapper.inc).

An authenticated user can't break-contact at all. Trying as an administrator, it throws the error, but does complete the operation, and does breaks the contact. This seems (to me) to be a crucial issue. If users can't remove a contact, I dare-not give them the possibility to add contacts in the first place..

At some point I thought it was all about VBO, so (I think) I uploaded the dev version of it, but I'm still getting the same behavior. Also, changing the php version as suggested somewhere, made no difference.

In my search for a solution I've come across many similar issues, some of which I've listed below. But I haven't found the very same issue I'm facing, and with so many different solutions I'm not sure where to start. In some posts it's about views-bulk-operations. In others it's about the Entity module. Or about Organic Groups. Or indeed about the Trusted-Contacts module itself. As I'm no patching-guru, I'm uncertain of how to proceed

Similar but not identical issues:

  • I tried the patch from the Commons issue queue ( drupal.org/project/commons/issues/2588155 ). It stops the error throwing, but users still cannot break contact. Any advice appreciated. Surely I'm not the only one facing this problem!!

to resolve this problem, two patches are needed:

1 patch for the trusted contacts module as discussed in comment #2 here: https://www.drupal.org/project/commons/issues/2588155

2... and a patch for the membership-delete-action .../profiles/commons/modules/contrib/og/includes/actions/membership_delete.action.inc as discussed here https://www.drupal.org/project/opigno_lms/issues/2953675

works for me... d
