Description of problem:
The error [An error occurred saving the URL: Validation failed: Repository url is too long (maximum is 255 characters)] while updating CDN URL for ISS exported directory path having more than 255 characters.
E.g: http://qeblade36.rhq.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com/pub/export/Default_Organization-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_Server-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization_Agents_for_RHEL_6_Server_RPMs_x86_64_6Server/Default_Organization/Library/content/dist/rhel/server/6/6Server/x86_64/rhev-agent/3/os/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.2 Snap 3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In upstream satellite, Export a redhat repository which path should have more than 255 characters.
2. In downstream satellite, Attempt to update CDN URL in subscription page with exported directory location of step1 which has more that 255 characters.
Note: Example provided in description.

Actual results:
The following error is raised by CDN URL:
An error occurred saving the URL: Validation failed: Repository url is too long (maximum is 255 characters)

Expected results:
Increase the length of CDN URL to contain url having more that 255 chars.

Additional info:

Comment 2 Chris Duryee 2016-03-23 14:32:03 UTC
The patch will update this to 1024 char.

For the test data given in comment #0, typically you'd want to use "http://qeblade36.rhq.lab.eng.bos.redhat.com/pub/export/Default_Organization-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_Server-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization_Agents_for_RHEL_6_Server_RPMs_x86_64_6Server/Default_Organization/Library/", so the "content/dist..." part gets appended to the end.

Comment 6 Jitendra Yejare 2016-03-31 07:39:41 UTC
Verified this in Sat 6.2 snap 6.0.

The issue is no more reproducible and fixed.

I see the CDN URL is taking more than 255 characters and not throwing any error.

So changing the status as Verified.
