Description Yanping Zhang 2020-02-18 06:14:53 UTC
Description of problem:
Create github idp from console, the "Hostname" field is not marked as a required field, when it's not set, github idp could not be created successfully.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create github idp from console, set name, client id, client secret, organization name, click "Create".

Actual results:
1. Could not create successfully, an error showed up:
Danger alert:An error occurred
Error "Invalid value: v1.ConfigMapNameReference{Name:"ca-name"}: cannot be specified when hostname is empty" for field "spec.identityProviders[1].github.ca".

Expected results:
1. Should create github idp seccessfully if there is no info to indicate the "Hostname" must be set.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Samuel Padgett 2020-02-18 14:45:13 UTC
Hostname is not required. It's only required because you provided a CA file (or for GitHub Enterprise), and it only makes sense to provide a CA file if you also provide a hostname. See the documentation here:


Comment 2 Yanping Zhang 2020-02-19 07:05:05 UTC
@Sam, the scenario is: I don't want to set "Hostname" and "CA", I just set idp name, client id, client secret, organization or team name, then click "Create", the idp should be created, it works in OCP 4.3/4.2, but now fails in OCP 4.4 with error:"Invalid value: v1.ConfigMapNameReference{Name:"ca-name"}: cannot be specified when hostname is empty" for field "spec.identityProviders[1].github.ca".u 
If it's not a bug for 4.4, then should be bug for 4.2/4.3, could you have a check again?

Comment 3 Yanping Zhang 2020-02-20 07:04:36 UTC
Could not create github idp successfully if I don't set "Hostname" and "CA", reopen the bug, we need a effective way to create github idp from console without "Hostname" and "CA" set.

Comment 4 Samuel Padgett 2020-02-22 15:06:58 UTC
This is a regression from https://github.com/openshift/console/pull/3947. We are incorrectly setting a CA in the dry-run request when one isn't set in the form. We might have this problem for other IDPs.

Comment 5 Samuel Padgett 2020-02-22 15:11:25 UTC
This affects most IDP forms.

Comment 8 Yanping Zhang 2020-02-28 09:33:46 UTC
Checked on OCP 4.5 with payload 4.5.0-0.ci-2020-02-28-043432, create github idp from console, after set idp name, client id, client secret and organization, click "Create", idp is created successfully.
The bug is fixed, so move it to Verified.
