All requests, including with the Hello World tutorial on, show the error tag.

Are you sure this is an issue with the hapi core module or are you just looking for some help?

Yes, I believe so.

Is this a security related issue?


What are you trying to achieve or the steps to reproduce?

Using the following example:

What was the result you received?

Debug: request, error, close
{ request: true, error: true, close: true }
Debug: response, error, close
{ response: true, error: true, close: true }

The error tag is set to true, both through debugging turned on, as well as the server request event.

What did you expect?

The error tag to not be set.


  • node version: 11.6.0
  • hapi version: 17.8.1
  • os: Mac OSX

I think the problem is with this line:

request._log(err ? ['request', 'error'] : ['request', 'error', event], err);

Regardless if err is truthy or not, it always sets the error tag.

I can confirm also on hapi v17.7.0 and node v11.2.0 with a simple curl request. I can also confirm that the issue does not occur on node v10.12.0 with the same hapi version. I recall some timer issues in node v11 that @cjihrig experienced and reviewed (i.e. nodejs/node#24322). While those bugs were fixed in v11.2.0, perhaps there's something else going on in a similar vein.

I don't think this is related to the timers issues (knocks on wood).

nodejs/node#20611 landed in Node 10.2.0. If you run the example against Node 10.2.0, you'll see the same output as you see on Node 11. That commit was determined to be a breaking change, and reverted in Node 10.8.0 in nodejs/node#21809, which is when the behavior goes back to what we expect.

nodejs/node#20611 was then re-released in Node 11, which is why we see the different behavior. I think hapi will probably want to update to deal with this.

I don't know if this additional information is helpful, but it looks like when running against v10.15.0, I don't see the request event fire at all (as shown in my original gist).

v8 and v10 do not have this problem, hence nothing is being reported (the internal request events are only fired on errors). With v11, looks like close is now a normal event, not just an error one.
