Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: `getJSONSchemaPropertySortWeight` helper function would recurse infinitely if a fieldDependency descriptor was applied to a schema property using a control field with an identical name. Consequence: The DynamicForm component would throw an exception under the above condition. Fix: In `getJSONSchemaPropertySortWeight` helper function, keep track of the current path and use the entire path to determine dependency relationship instead of just the field names. Result: DynamicForm no longer throws an exception under the above condition.

Description Jon Jackson 2021-01-07 21:34:24 UTC
From https://github.com/openshift/console/issues/6182:

With OCP 4.5+, the console UI crashes due to what seems to be the path property name contains the same property name of the fieldDependency. In the following example, enabled is in both the path topology.appDisco.enabled and the x-descriptor urn:alm:descriptor:com.tectonic.ui:fieldDependency:topology.enabled:true:

      - description: Enable Application Discovery  and Application Discovery  Observer
        displayName: Application Discovery
        path: topology.appDisco.enabled
        - urn:alm:descriptor:com.tectonic.ui:booleanSwitch
        - urn:alm:descriptor:com.tectonic.ui:fieldDependency:topology.enabled:true
        - urn:alm:descriptor:com.tectonic.ui:fieldGroup:topology

When trying to create the custom resource via the OCP UI via the Form view, the browser crashes:

vendors~main-chunk-7a7a26f2297ed1999af3.min.js:161388 RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded

    at s (create-operand-chunk-b84d6e080d8c4e9c11ea.min.js:1)

If I change the property name of the path or fieldDependency to be unique from each other (i.e. enabledx), the UI works. We also didn't see this problem in OCP 4.4, but only within OCP 4.5+.

Hi Jon,

Could you tell me which operator can easily reproduce the issue?

Comment 4 Jon Jackson 2021-02-03 19:05:03 UTC
Hi Yadan, 

I don't know of an existing operator, but I've created a gist with the YAML to create a mock Operator similar to what I used to reproduce. I added a link in the bug details.

Just create the CRD, then create the CSV in whatever namespace you want and you should see a "Mock Operator" on the Installed Operators page. It provides one CR: "MockResource" and attempting to create an instance of that resource should reproduce the bug before my fix.

Here's the gist:

Thank you very much Jon,

The mock csv and crd yaml is very helpful, I created them and tried to create an instance of 'MockResource', the browser didn't crash
