Unable to create private scans using Wayfarer

  • Issue category: Niantic Wayfarer 3.1.0.cafe174
  • Device type & OS version: iOS
  • Host machine & OS version: iPhone 11 on iOS 16.6.1

Description of the issue:

I was trying to create private scans of my workplace and a small building outside, but every time after selecting Scan Type → Private it appears public in the Logbook. Also, I can’t upload any scans now because they need a wayspot assigned since they automatically became public. Lastly, selecting Upload Now seems to be uploading scans somewhere since those scans don’t appear in the Logbook, but they are also nowhere to be found in my lightship.dev account, even after some time (more than 4 hours).

Any help would be appreciated!

Update: downgrading Niantic Wayfarer to fixed the issues

Hello Anastasiia,

Thank you for your report and for posting your solution!

I have reproduced the issue with version 3.1.0.cafe174 of the Wayfarer app that the Scan Type is assigned as Public despite Private being selected by default. I was able to get past this by manually clicking Private (if you get to the Wayspot Association page, that means they will be uploaded as Public scans), but I have let the team know of the issue so that they may work on resolving it.

As a note, scans will disappear from the logbook once they’re successfully uploaded. You would not be able to find them in your Private Scans section if they were not properly tagged as Private.
