Exception handling in webapi

Hi,

I am on Orchard 1.7.2. I have a web api controller with HandleError attribute on it.

In this controller I throw exceptions if the posted data is not confirming the requirement. I noticed that these exceptions are not caught by the action filters and not logged in the log file.

Exceptions thrown from the non-api controllers are caught and logged.

Now the problem is, the transaction is not cancelled since the action filters are not activated.

API exceptions are logged in Orchard currently, was added in 1.8 I think. This is implemented in Orchard.Framework.WebApi.Filters, what you can simply copy to your 1.7.2 solution and thus backport it as far as I know.

i'm using 1.8.1, exception in webapi doesnt trigger the exception filter.
thus, the transaction got committed. :)

any idea how to solve this?

Indeed. Would you mind submitting a bug? BTW you can work around this by implementing your own unhandled exception filter.
