Description Patrik Hagara 2015-03-04 15:02:51 UTC

Unable to enter string containing spaces into resource agent optional arguments fields. Tested with Apache RA and 'options' field (extra CLI options to pass to httpd).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open pcs web ui with running cluster, go to resources tab
2. click add, select 'ocf:heartbeat:apache' resource
3. try to set 'options' in 'optional arguments' section to eg. '-D name -d /server_root'

Actual results:
Unable to input space character into any RA optional argument field, even when it should be possible/allowed (like extra apache CLI options).

Expected results:
Be able to enter strings containing spaces into applicable fields.

Comment 4 Tomas Jelinek 2015-08-10 13:19:52 UTC
Fixed in a complex rewrite of the resources page in the web UI, patches in bz1189857

Before Fix:
[root@rh71-node1 ~]# rpm -q pcs
It is not possible to type a space character in a resource's attribute value in Optional Arguments form.

After Fix:
[root@rh71-node1:~]# rpm -q pcs
It is possible to type a space character in a resource's attribute value in Optional Arguments form. The value is displayed correctly in the web UI after the form is submitted.

Comment 8 Tomas Jelinek 2015-09-16 13:35:57 UTC
After Fix:
[root@rh71-node1:~]# rpm -q pcs

It is possible to enter a space character into an attribute value input in the "Add resource" dialog. The attribute value of the created resource is correct - the same as entered.
