I have been playing with mailman shell but upon creating objects like domains and addresses, and subsequestly committing them to database by calling transaction.commit() I am unable to see changes in the database(and thus on Postorius)
The current approach I am taking towards committing transaction is first creating a connection object by calling config.db.engine.connect() . After that, I am creating a transaction object by calling connection.begin() . Finally after creating domain and address objects, I call transaction.commit(),which executes succesfully, but I am unable to see changes being reflected in the database.
Which database backend are you using, SQLite or PostgreSQL?
When you're checking the database, is this from a different process? How are you checking the database? Can you give us the exact set of commands you're using both to change things and to check things? E.g. maybe paste a console session so we can reproduce it.
mailman shell exposes some globals, such as commit(), abort(), the config
object, and the mailing list
m object if you gave the -l option. I don't
think you normally need to do the config.db.engine.connect() call or the
connection.begin() call, and I don't know whether those are create
subtransactions or otherwise interfering with your operations.
