Description Sayli Karmarkar 2009-04-07 12:07:27 EDT
Description of problem:

Scenario 1:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to manage software channels
2. try to create a channel with a 4 letter channel name.

Scenario 2:
1. Go to manage software channels
2. try to create a channel with a channel name "foobar#$%"

Scenario 3: 
1. Go to manage software channels
2. create channel testchannel
3. again try to create a channel with the same name

This scenario is worse in multiorg case where one org doesnt know that a channel with the same name exists in other org. 
Actual results:
Invalid Channel Name

Expected results:
Invalid Channel Name : Channels exists with the same name
Invalid Channel Name : Channel need to be atleast * characters
Invalid Channel Name : Invalid character in channel name

Added more fine grained error messages for invalid channel data.

There is now a specific error message for the following conditions:
- Channel name/label is all whitespace or not specified
- Channel name/label is not the required length (6)
- Channel name/label does not match the appropriate regex validation
- Channel name/label is already in use
- Channel name/label is a Red Hat channel (starts with rhn or red hat) and the user is not a super user
