Arcanist_configuration not respected

Reproduction Instructions

  1. set a library to extend ArcanistConfiguration and load it


    class ArcanistPSYConfiguration extends ArcanistConfiguration {
    public function willRunWorkflow($command, ArcanistWorkflow $workflow) {
    if ($command == ‘land’) {

             $testWorkflow = $workflow->buildChildWorkflow('unit');
             $testResult = $testWorkflow->run();
             $testMessages = $testWorkflow->getUnresolvedMessages();
             if (!empty($testMessages)) {
                 throw new Exception(
                 pht("Please fix the unit test issues before landing."));
         return 0;


  2. load it
    “load”: [".arcanist/configuration"] in .arcconfig

  3. set “arcanist_configuration”: “ArcanistPSYConfiguration” in .arcconfig

  4. finally, when command ‘arc land’, no errors and unit test was not run. However, ‘arc unit’ for unit tests work well.

Thanks for reply. things resolved.
Phabricator helps my team a lot.
I’ve create a pull request for throwing exception on that deprecated setting, in case workflow broken after upgrade without prompt. Hope it helps for question like that.
