After upgrading Joomla site to 5.46.2 with Mosaico 2.9 and searchkit, there are no recipients available in mail, only showing 'Searching…' in the recipient box.

The problem disappears if debugging is turned on (see comment below from Mark, experiencing same issue in Wordpress).

There is no obviously relevant sign in the logs.

Settings files and urls/directories are clean for 'http://' references and asset caching is off.

Other angular/recipient problems resolved here have identified & resolved 'invisible' recipient groups that still operate. However, in this case, no groups present themselves to be selected.

This ONLY happens with Mosaico enabled. With Mosaico disabled, choosing of recipient groups works fine using 'traditional' interface.

Browser console shows errors:

  • Does the browser console show errors?

  • i had a quick search on here for answers relating to angular. found this but suspect it isn't what you need but maybe it offers a hint (beyond clearing caches) civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/19366/… - you may find other Q+A here with other suggestions but assume you searched first

    I just upgraded my dev system to CiviCRM 5.47.0 and am not seeing this behavior anymore. Groups are showing up properly with debugging off. Commented Mar 8, 2022 at 23:11

As @Mark Westergaard has observed below, the problem has disappeared upon upgrading to 5.47.0, so I guess we just put it down to an obscure temporary bug?

Problems that go away by themselves come back by themselves…


The reason why it disappeared with 5.47.0 should be this fix https://github.com/veda-consulting-company/uk.co.vedaconsulting.mosaico/issues/494
