Openwhisk : "error": "Cannot initialize the action more than once."


Level 3

Hi All,


I am trying to create a webhook for my Adobe IO Project using Openwhisk.


I created a new webhook action and able to see it in wsk action list. And I am able to fetch the URL too. But when i configured it in my adobe io project's event registration I am getting "Webhook has been disabled because either webhook is unreachable or verification has failed".


When I checked the activation list in openwhisk. I got the below error 


"error": "Cannot initialize the action more than once."


After got this error. I deleted the action and tried creating it from scratch, after that also I am facing the same issue.


Can someone help me on this ?


Cheers 🙂

Hey there,

had the same Error some time ago. 
Using "aio runtime activation list" I was able to make out 3 different "activations" for every request I made.

When taking a peek into each one (aio runtime activation get <activation-id-from ...list>) I noticed an different error message on another one.
Fixing that one automatically removed that problem for me...

If you find the out what exactly is causing the problem in the first place please share it with us - would really like to deepen my understanding as I notice the more I learn the dumber I feel  😅
