Hey pants team, is there a way to investigate what is pulling in a specific wheel file? I have an odd issue I can't seem to track down where a pex I have build (using pants 1.30 and pants 2.13) references a completely different version of a 3rd party module than I have referenced in the BUILD file.

Hello! One idea is to inspect the sandbox in 2.13: https://www.pantsbuild.org/docs/troubleshooting#debug-tip-inspect-the-sandbox-with---keep-sandboxes Another idea is if you are using lockfiles? That should pin down the exact artifcats (sdists and wheels) that will be used

I do have a lockfile which specified the right version. So the sandbox would have the list of installed_wheels that were brought in during build?

A Pex is a zip file, so you can
unzip requirements.pex
for example and then look at the PEX-INFO or I think it's a folder called
.deps
iirc

Ok. I'll unzip the pex and see what I can find. Is there any way to tell where a specific wheel would've been pulled from once I unpack the pex?

So the version that is being pulled into the pex is different than the lockfile one? Or just different than the BUILD file one?

The python code is trying to use something different from the lockfile and build file. I haven't had a chance to unpack the pex just yet, will try that momentarily
I unpacked the zip, and the correct version of the package with issues is installed. So that aligns with the build file and lock file.
I think I found a solution, I didn't realize that pants 2.13 would place the pex in an entirely different spot than I had expected, once I unpacked the newly build pex I saw that the proper versions were installed. When I looked at what pants 1.30 had built, it contained the wrong version. I'm going forward with rebuilding my docker file and testing the new pex out
