Error: Core fallback runs in infinite loop with action server

Hey,

we’re trying to implement our own action server within php application and getting a strange behavior with core fallback. Let’s have the following setup

Now, whenever a action_core_fallback is predicted, custom action is being sent to our webhook url (correctly set in endpoints.yml)

The endpoint receives something like this

(
 'next_action' => 'action_core_fallback',
 'sender_id' => 'test_sender_1',
 'version' => '2.0.6',
 'tracker' => [...],
 'domain' => [...]
)

Our webhook then responds with this 200 json

{
    "events": [
        {
            "event": "bot",
            "text": "fallback text"
        }
    ]
}

but it doesn’t really matter, which actions or responses we use, the result is still the same. Rasa correctly receives the json, sends a message fallback text to the user test_sender_1 to our callback channel but then, Rasa starts to keep predicting action_core_fallback (see the log at the end). It’s keep hitting our action server up to 10 times, then dies on Circuit breaker tripped. The result is that user receives 10 fallback messages in a row.

Expected behavior - Rasa should send the response to the callback channel and start listening for new input. Interesting is, that if an action server doesn’t send any events, Rasa behaves correctly and listens to another input.

Could you please suggest, what’s wrong?

hey there @mbukovy, interesting problem! I see that the infinite predictions are all being made by the RulePolicy. Can you post your rules here? Maybe you have some rule that applies with wait_for_user_input: false or something like that, which is always applicable?

Interesting is, that if an action server doesn’t send any events, Rasa behaves correctly and listens to another input.

Sounds like that bot event is part of the rule that’s always applicable, and therefore if it doesn’t get sent, the rule no longer applies…

Oh! Actually, i’m now noticing that it’s predicting with RulePolicy although there is no applicable rule. Do you have the TEDPolicy in your ensemble, or just rules and Memoization? Seems like RulePolicy (higher prio over memo) is defaulting to the last prediction it made because there’s no other policy to make an educated guess? :thinking:

Hey @erohmensing thank you for reply :slight_smile:

There is my yaml setup on pastebin in the first post (it’s not well visible though) https://pastebin.com/eY1SZqiz You can see there all the rules and policies and yes, there is also TED policy.

Ah thanks for the clarification, i missed that you’d shared it before :slight_smile: I think this is the problem:

  • enable_fallback_prediction - If True , core_fallback_action_name is predicted in case no rule matched.

Seems like the exact behavior you’re seeing!

@erohmensing I’ve been testing it a little bit but removing enable_fallback_prediction didn’t help. Still doing the same loop :frowning:
