Description John Matthews 2009-02-17 18:14:22 EST
Description of problem:

activationkey.create() from the xmlrpc apis, allows a negative "usageLimit" to be passed in.  The docs state "-1" is valid and will be considered as "unlimited".  Assumption is, other negative values would throw an exception.

Prior QA api tests were passing in a value of "-45" and expecting this to throw an exception with wording:
Usage Limit cannot be less than 0.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run test: com.redhat.rhn.rpc.api.activationkey.create::testActivationkeyCreateWithNegativeUsageLimit()
2. Observe no exception is thrown.
Actual results:
exception is thrown

Expected results:
no exception thrown, key is set to "unlimited" usage.

Turns out I had a configuration error in api automation setup and was running against an older ISO.

Closing this as it works as intended with current iso.
