EasyCLA Troubleshooting

If you are having issues with EasyCLA, go to The Linux Foundation Support Center, and file a ticket.
Following sections help you troubleshoot common problems that you might encounter when using EasyCLA tool.

GitHub pull request is not passing

Problem:

I have an agreement on file, but EasyCLA does not authorize me and displays "Missing ID on Commit".

Solution:

  • Ensure that your commits are linked to your GitHub account. If your commits are not linked to any GitHub user, GitHub will display the grey Octocat logo
    beside the commits.
  • If your commits are linked to your GitHub account, and yet the GitHub pull request is not passing the EasyCLA check, then open the pull request, type/easycla in the comment box, click Comment as shown below. This runs the EasyCLA bot again, and the GitHub pull request is passed.

(Gerrit) Individual Contributor's EasyCLA status is not updated

Problem:

After a Contributor has signed an ICLA, EasyCLA status on Git command line still displays "No contributor agreement" when the contributor pushes the code change.

Solution:

Navigate to the Gerrit window, sign out, sign in again, and then push the code.

(GitHub) Corporate Contributor's EasyCLA status is not updated

Problem:

For a CCLA, after a Contributor has been added to the approved list for the first time, the CLA status still displays Not Covered.

Solution:

After being added to the approved list under their company's signed CCLA, the Contributor must acknowledge their association with the company. This is a one-time action and, after completion, it will not be required for future contributions to that project.
Although it is uncommon, some projects may require a Contributor under a CCLA to additionally sign an ICLA. If this is required, then after completing the company acknowledgement, the Contributor will be guided to sign the project's ICLA.

Navigate to the Gerrit window, sign out, sign in again, and then push the code.
