Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1312824
referencing absolute path of file is not supported
Last modified: 2017-12-06 06:27:17 EST
Description of problem:
I am not able to reference oval file via absolute path.
xccdf / check / check-content-ref / href is of type anyURI, which is defined in RFC 2396 ( https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt ). Thus it should support file://<abs-path>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. reference oval file with absolute path
2. oscap xccdf eval $xccdf
WARNING: Skipping /tmp/tmp.oBlqLIiXmD/file://tmp/tmp.oBlqLIiXmD/oval.xml file which is referenced from XCCDF content
/tmp/tmp.oBlqLIiXmD/oval.xml is used properly
