Description Christoph Jerolimov 2021-11-29 10:24:54 UTC
Description of problem:
After fixing that the Devfile samples could not be loaded on Safari (only), it looks like they couldn't be loaded at all / or on other browsers.

The reason was that the browsers caches an redirect from /api/devfile/samples (frontend code) to /api/devfile/samples/ (backend code). The PR https://github.com/openshift/console/pull/10464 to fix https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2023356 changed all code to /api/devfile/samples but the browsers keep their redirect. So that the fix works when the user clears their cache or uses another cluster (URL) but has issues after updating locally. We could also expect that the users will have issues after updating from 4.9 to 4.10 with this solution.

I believe the easiest solution is to switch all URLs to /api/devfile/samples/ (old backend code) instead.

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

How reproducible:
Only if the user uses an older version first (before https://github.com/openshift/console/pull/10464 was merged) and then switches to the latest version.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Test with an old version first (before 22th Nov 2021)
2. Open developer perspective and open Add > Samples
3. Switch your console to the latest master
4. Open developer perspective and open Add > Samples again

Actual results:
The Devfile samples could not be loaded. After cleaning the browser cache it works fine.

Expected results:
The Devfile samples could be loaded also when the browser has a redirect in its cache.

Additional info:
You can open the browser network inspector to check if the API calls contain any redirect.
