Description of problem: The Company Specific Messages on the login page can cover all login page and the user interface under settings-> general tab breaks.Thus, there should be character limit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sat 6.3 snap 6.0

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to Administer -> settings
2. Click on general tab 
3. Enter large Login page footer message

Actual results:
Login page and UI under settings-> general breaks.

Expected results:
There should be constraint to character limit so that login page UI and  settings-> general tab page should not break.

I don't think there should be a limit. Instead, the settings should be able to resize the table accordingly to the content. In fact some of the requesters of the RFE https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=726570 ask for pretty large texts to be included.
Comment 4 Corey Welton 2017-08-11 14:32:37 EDT
Agree, to some degree, with comment #3.  The proper way would be to assure table can gracefully handle a bunch of text.

There probably should be some sort of validation, however, that someone can't DDoS or otherwise make a login screen unusable due to malicious (or inadvertent) inclusion of excessive content.

Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/21200 has been resolved.
Comment 9 Nikhil Kathole 2017-10-30 06:52:27 EDT

Version Tested:
Satellite-6.3 Snap 22


1. Inserted large text in Login page footer message parameter under settings

Login page handled the larger data.
