Description Marek Schmidt 2016-09-12 15:12:07 UTC
Created attachment 1200239 [details]

Description of problem:


oc process -f jboss-fuse-camel-amq-template.json "MAVEN_ARGS_APPEND=-Dfoo=bar -Dbar=foo"

causes an error

invalid parameter assignment in "s2i-jboss-fuse-camel-amq": "MAVEN_ARGS_APPEND=-Dfoo=bar -Dbar=foo"

The same command works correctly in previous version (OCP 3.2)

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

oc version
oc v3.3.0.29
kubernetes v1.3.0+52492b4
features: Basic-Auth GSSAPI Kerberos SPNEGO

Server https://api.devel.xpaas:8443
openshift v3.3.0.29
kubernetes v1.3.0+52492b4

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 

oc process -f jboss-fuse-camel-amq-template.json "MAVEN_ARGS_APPEND=-Dfoo=bar -Dbar=foo"

on the attached template json file

Actual results:

invalid parameter assignment in "s2i-jboss-fuse-camel-amq": "MAVEN_ARGS_APPEND=-Dfoo=bar -Dbar=foo"

Expected results:

list of objects with a build config containing "name": "MAVEN_ARGS_APPEND",  "value": "-Dfoo=bar -Dbar=foo"

Additional info:

This used to work in OCP 3.2 

$ ./stable-oc version
stable-oc v3.2.1.13-1-gc2a90e1
kubernetes v1.2.0-36-g4a3f9c5

so this is a regression

Comment 3 Xingxing Xia 2016-09-13 07:47:06 UTC
Checked on devenv-rhel7_5003 (openshift v1.3.0-rc1+3cd9a1f). Fixed. Multi '='s work well. Wait for merge into OCP.

Comment 4 Brenton Leanhardt 2016-09-13 11:58:14 UTC
Can we discuss the severity of this bug?

Obviously some 'oc process' commands may be broken.  However, I would think as a workaround someone could grab the latest oc client from Origin.  This doesn't seem like a blocker unless a significant number of templates are going to be broken.

Also, I'm moving this back to ASSIGNED until we triage it for OCP.  This bug should have been moved ON_QA against Origin.

Comment 5 Marek Schmidt 2016-09-13 12:03:31 UTC
I would say this may affect xPaaS customers quite considerably, as any custom maven or java arguments have the form of "-Dfoo=bar"

Comment 6 Ben Parees 2016-09-13 12:06:11 UTC
@brenton i think you've summarized it accurately.  my main concern is the the use case that hit this bug seems likely to be a common one (jvm args are commonly going to include multple =s).

but yes, workarounds do exist.

Comment 7 Brenton Leanhardt 2016-09-13 12:12:03 UTC
It seems like we may need to perform a rebuild for another high severity bug.  Given this is low risk I would say please submit a PR against ose's enterprise-3.3 branch.

Comment 8 Ben Parees 2016-09-13 12:15:59 UTC

From above discussion, the bug is low risk; H severity is because use case is common.

As said, wait for merge into new puddle.

Comment 11 Brenton Leanhardt 2016-09-14 12:23:55 UTC
We hope to have an official build for QE testing tomorrow.

Comment 12 Troy Dawson 2016-09-15 20:43:22 UTC
This has been merged into OCP and is in version v3.3.0.31.  This is planned on the GA release.  It is in images now and ready for testing.

Comment 13 Troy Dawson 2016-09-15 20:46:58 UTC
My bad, I didn't notice it was already on the Errata.
It's ready for QE now.

Comment 15 Marek Schmidt 2016-09-20 06:57:38 UTC
AFAIK this bug never affected any released version, so it doesn't need doc text?

Comment 16 Ben Parees 2016-09-20 07:51:08 UTC
The regression went in on may 2nd:
was that included in 3.2 or 3.2.1?
