Aloha POS: When Olo triggers a restart of Iber(qs) based on error from POS


Technical Teams, Engineers, Product Managers

Description of Issue:

When Olo encounters specific behaviors from Aloha POS, Olo is written to trigger a restart of Iber(qs) to overcome the error and get Iber(qs) back into a ready state to process orders. 


Reasons IBER restarts:

  • We failed to login:  we retry once before failing
  • The COM interface isn't available
  • Any exception occurs when checking POS health:
    • In terms of health checks, there's no counting of errors before restarting, it's an immediate restart.
  • COM exception occurs when committing an order with an error between 0xC0068001 and 0xC0068118
  • COM exception occurs during Order Validation or Tip Adjustment and it's NOT one of these reasons:
  • InvalidTender = 0xC006801B
  • CheckIsClosed = 0xC006801C
  • TableActiveOnOtherTerminal = 0xC0068020
  • InvalidItem = 0xC0068021
  • InvalidOrderMode = 0xC0068023
  • UnavailableItem = 0xC0068026
  • InvalidModCode = 0xC0068027
  • ModNotAuthForParentItem = 0xC0068028
  • ModReqsNotMet = 0xC0068029
  • InvalidCompType = 0xC006804A
  • InvalidPromotion = 0xC006804B
  • InvalidComp = 0xC006804C
  • InvalidPromo = 0xC006804D
  • InvalidOrderNumber = 0xC0068086
    • Conditional: when adding memos or items to a check during the ordering process we retry on 0xC0068086, but not forever.  Therefore, for scheduled orders we retry 60 times every 3 seconds, if the order isn't scheduled then we retry 45 times with 1 second between each. If Aloha does not resolve the error at that point, we restart Iber(qs).
  • During many Aloha interactions, we retry on busy errors (0xC006804E) based on config using the IberBusyRetryAttempts and IberBusyRetryInterval keys.
