Description Damian Jansen 2013-11-05 18:10:16 EST
Description of problem:
The Description field in the Create Project page is restricted to 1-100 characters.
This rule is not indicated to the user and validation only occurs after the user has pressed Save

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Sign in, go to Projects
2. Click Create Project
3. Enter > 100 characters in the Description field
4. Click somewhere to defocus the field
    - Note no error is displayed
5. Enter a project id and name, press Save

Actual results:
"size must be between 0 and 100" error is displayed

Expected results:
This error should be displayed to the user before pressing Save, and perhaps a (i) icon indicating the rule should be present.

I also suggest that we label this field as "short description", since they can enter longer descriptive text in the project homepage field.
Comment 2 Luke Brooker 2013-11-05 19:38:15 EST
In the future, I don't think we should have a long description fields, or an kind of wysiwyg. They can use the project url to link to more info if needed or add another url in the short description.
Comment 3 Ding-Yi Chen 2013-11-05 19:51:59 EST
I was going to suggest that "Summary" will be better. Both then we have to either modify the parameter name of desc to summary, or mend the client help.

Is this issue still occuring in 3.4.x?
Comment 5 Damian Jansen 2014-07-28 01:49:37 EDT
Tested 3.5.0-SNAPSHOT (git-server-3.4.2-201-ge0afdde) - still an issue
