Description Billy Holmes 2017-09-19 20:43:20 UTC
Description of problem:

When using the UI or API, the template_sync_prefix has it's value blank space stripped before persistence. The plugin has configured with the value "community " - notice the space at the end.

This allows templates that are imported to have the following pattern:

community kickstart template
community finishing template
community kickstart PXELinux template

However, upon update with a new prefix (ex: "Company "), the blank space is stripped, and now it looks like this upon import:

Companykickstart template
Companyfinishing template
Comapnykickstart PXELinux template

Further, in the UI, it appears the blank space is visible, until you reload the page, then you see the persistence layer has stripped the blank space.

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update template_sync_prefix setting via hammer
2. Update template_sync_prefix via API
3. Update template_sync_prefix via UI

Actual results:

Value has it's blank space stripped.

Expected results:

Blank space is preserved.

Additional info:

[root@sat1 foreman-templates]# ./2_prefix_bug
