Description Nikhil Gupta 2018-08-01 08:20:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Service Dialog CheckBox has null value when not ticked by default.
- When I directly order a service without touching the checkbox, the value is blank or null:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Service Dialog with the following elements
    - Checkbox ( not ticked)
    - Dynamic Text Area 
        use the following code for the dynamic text area
        check_box  =  $evm.root['dialog_check_box_1']
        puts "#{check_box}"
   In the Checkbox element, add refresh field to "Text Area"

2. Create a Service catalog Item and use the newly created Service Dialog

3. Order the Service catalog item

4. Check automation.log 

Actual results:
The default value is blank or null.

Expected results:
We expect that during the initial Service dialog load, by default, the value of the checkbox will be "f".

Additional info:
- Ticking the Checkbox will shows the value of "t", then untick will now have the value of "f".

@Nikhil, could you please tell me if this is a regression?

Comment 5 drew uhlmann 2018-08-02 20:14:14 UTC
This works on master, and it also works if you set the field to have a default value of false.

Comment 6 drew uhlmann 2018-08-02 21:47:42 UTC
@Nikhil! Sorry about this, but could you please retest this on your appliance? I have a one line change made on that system in app/models/dialog_field_check_box.rb.

Comment 10 Shveta 2018-08-21 20:37:32 UTC
I am seeing 

 <AEMethod dialog_parser> dialog_options: {"dialog_check_box_1"=>nil, "dialog_textarea_box_1"=>"", "request"=>"clone_to_service", :service_action=>"Provision", "Service::Service"=>6}

When the checkbox is not set to any value . 
It shows "nil "
Is it supposed to show 'f' as stated in the issue ?

Appliance :
Service : catalog_item

Comment 11 drew uhlmann 2018-08-22 11:57:37 UTC
Hey Shveta. So the original bug for which this ticket was filed was about the backend code not setting the value correctly. The issue I'm seeing on your appliance is a different issue. I verified originally that the API payload had the right value -- f, just like you mentioned -- but on your appliance for some reason, the API isn't showing the same thing. Since Nikhil confirmed that my fix worked for the issue he was seeing, can you please verify this ticket and reopen a similar ticket on the API? You can assign that ticket to me, that's fine, but I'd like to be very clear that these are separate issues.

Comment 12 drew uhlmann 2018-08-22 12:30:39 UTC
Looking into the API issue further, I think you'll find that if you try to submit the dialog without changing the checkbox at all, the API payload doesn't even list the checkbox as a field.
