Description Charles Crouch 2012-07-09 15:25:12 EDT

From working with Heiko and RHQ Pocket I recall that the status URI:

http://ec2-184-72-193-95.compute-1.amazonaws.com:7080/rest/1/status

requires the requesting user to have MANAGE_SETTINGS permission, iirc.

We should provide a URL that a user can query to make sure the server is up and running, that doesnt require any special privileges, e.g. works for a readonly user.

$ curl -u joe:doe123 http://localhost:7080/rest/1/status/server.json
{"value":"NORMAL"}

Bulk closing of items that are on_qa and in old RHQ releases, which are out for a long time and where the issue has not been re-opened since.
