Description of problem:
I was testing special characters container requests and if you create a container with % in the name we get a bad request page:
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat) Server at nott-vdsa.qa.lab.tlv.redhat.com Port 80
also, for some cases the container will be created but we cannot list/upload or download files from it.
testing the swift UI it can support it as long as we put '***' so please note that even if horizon blocks special characters we can still create them from swift.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to create a container called b%b
we get a bad request page from horizon
requests for special characters should be sent with 'b%b' since swift does support this and a user can still create a container from the cli and than not be able to list it from horizon.
Fixed in Icehouse-1 upstream (commit 5a57c1ee704).
As per previous comment, this was merged during Icehouse upstream and should already be available in the existing RHEL OSP 5 packages.
Verified, I tried %, along with some other esoteric charecters.
