Description John Mazzitelli 2008-12-08 14:57:00 EST
(2:53:35 PM) joseph: mazz, my new agent now has a default IP of "null"
(2:53:37 PM) joseph: is that right?
(2:54:17 PM) mazz: http://jira.rhq-project.org/browse/RHQ-1223
(2:54:37 PM) mazz: yes, it is right.  I should probably not show the string "null" - maybe just an empty string 
(2:54:39 PM) joseph: very well
(2:54:43 PM) mazz: but for now, it is what it is
(2:54:46 PM) joseph: i did see that jira, but iddn't recall "null" being right
(2:54:56 PM) joseph: you should change that to some other special char
(2:55:02 PM) joseph: that will no doubt confuse users
(2:55:14 PM) mazz: yes, which is what I tried to say above
(2:55:38 PM) mazz: probably should show "!*"
(2:55:50 PM) mazz: since that's the special marker to indicate we fallback to system defaults
(2:55:56 PM) mazz: either that or just an empty string
(2:56:25 PM) joseph: or maybe something like "dynamic", "non-static", "rotating", "changes", etc
Comment 1 John Mazzitelli 2008-12-09 22:53:46 EST
instead of showing the string "null", we show the "!*" string since this is the notation that the user must enter to set the value as the internal default (which is what null represents in this context)
Comment 2 Corey Welton 2009-02-09 09:23:02 EST
QA Verified, we now use !* for indication.
