Description Lukáš Hellebrandt 2020-03-19 15:40:36 UTC
Description of problem:
When I generate a report in JSON format, Submit button gets me to the page where I can download it. It download automatically and the file is correct. When I click the Download button, however, I get the same file but with quotation marks escaped by backslashes, i.e.:

1st time:
..."Organization":"Default Organization","Lifecycle Environment":"Library"...

n+1st time:
...\"Organization\":\"Default Organization\",\"Lifecycle Environment\":\"Library\"...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Reproduced with Sat 6.7 snap 16; JSON format not supported in Sat 6.6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Satellite with some host
2. Monitor -> Report Templates -> generate Host Statuses
3. Select JSON format, Submit
4. Download the file
5. Click Download and download the file again

Actual results:
Quotation marks escaped

Expected results:
Correct JSON file

Additional info:
This doesn't happen with custom templates containing quotation marks

Used reproducer from OP, correct JSON without excessive escaping is now downloaded every time.
