Slack Import Error: Meteor.userId

Description

I am Trying to import our current Slack Workspace into RocketChat. I have upgraded our Slack Account to Businiss for this month go get the complete export but now i can not import the files into RocketChat.

I have this log at the Bottom, i had some messages at the beginning about unknown SubTypes (for Slack user join stuff, that i manually deleted) but the error is still there.

Would really like to get some help here to figgure this out. All the DOMAIN / ID etc stuff in the logs is my redacting and has reall info.
Thanks for the support

hi @TobiasDax

Wild guess here… looks like some name has some unwanted characters.

I say that based on those hints:

  1. app/lib/server/functions/setRealName.js:44:23
  2. “object [”"] is not a valid ObjectId"

Can you check the data and look for “weird” names? Probably some ", or \

I never did this kind of import, but If we can isolate that, we can could a simple environment and feed that to our dev team.

Thanks!

so, after a very long day i found out the following:

  1. importing the same files on a SAAS version of rocket.chat works fine.
  2. using the official docker-compose.yaml does not work out of the box
  3. using the official coder-compose.yaml and changing the image version to 3.18.2 works. This is the same version that the SAAS Server runs on.

so my guess is that somewhere between 3.18.2 and 4 the import broke.

Not sure who to call about that.
