Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 53636
Can't post bug with long URL
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:06 EDT
Description of Problem: if the 'URL' field in the bug report form has a
long value, Bugzilla chokes when you try to commit the bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ is running
How Reproducible: go to bug report page and enter a nice long URL in the
URL field. For example, I was trying to file a bug report with the URL
Then fill in any mandatory fields and press 'Commit'.
Actual Results: got to post_bug.cgi with the error message:
DBD::Oracle::st execute failed: ORA-01401: inserted value too large for
column (DBD ERROR: OCIStmtExecute) at globals.pl line 225.
For help, please send mail to the webmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org), giving
this error message and the time and date of the error.
Expected Results: I expected the bug to post correctly even with a somewhat
long URL. Or in the worst case, Bugzilla should fail cleanly and say
'the URL you've chosen is too long'.
Additional Information: you might say that nobody in his right mind would
make URLs that long. But this particular example is a URL from Bugzilla
itself! Bugzilla can dish it out, but it can't take it...
Trying to enter a long URL in the new Bugzilla.
Seems to work now.
