Description Meni Yakove 2016-04-19 10:30:16 UTC
Description of problem:
On 3.6 in order to refresh host capabilities we send GET with:

In 4.0 this is not working (no error) and only the new method working:
POST with:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
oVirt Engine Version: 4.0.0-0.0.master.20160404161620.git4ffd5a4.el7.centos

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send GET with /ovirt-engine/api/hosts/<host_id>;force

Comment 1 Meni Yakove 2016-04-19 10:37:45 UTC
same when setting version: 3 in the header

Comment 2 Juan Hernández 2016-04-19 10:55:15 UTC
This happens because the code that handles parameters ignores them if they don't have a value. This needs to be fixed, we should assume that the value is an empty string instead. We will fix that.

Meanwhile the expected result can be obtained including explicitly the value of the parameter:

  GET /ovirt-engine/api/hosts/<host_id>;force=true

This will work with version 3 of the API, including the "Version: 3" header. The "force" parameter has been completely removed from version 4 of the API, replaced by the "refresh" action.
