Description Og Maciel 2014-07-30 19:50:57 UTC
Description of problem:

Our automation has shown that creating an operating system via the API is failing when providing the 'minor' version field with the following error:

  undefined method `empty?' for 10:Fixnum

curl -X POST -k  -u admin:changeme https://SERVER/api/v2/operatingsystems -d {"operatingsystem": {"major": 1, "release_name": "osrelease246", "name": "OperatingSystem_2799", "minor": 10, "family": "Redhat"}} 

  "error": {"message":"undefined method `empty?' for 10:Fixnum"}
