Description Corey Welton 2011-03-28 17:46:33 UTC
Description of problem:
The apparent maxlength of dynagroup names is 100 characters.  A user is able to enter more than this in the field, however, and a stacktrace results.  User should be given a hard maximum of 100 in the field.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Nav to dynagroup page; create a new dynagroup or edit an existing one.
2.  In the name field, enter > 100 characters.
3.  Stack trace; view Message center error.
Actual results:

java.lang.RuntimeException:org.rhq.enterprise.server.resource.group.definition.exception.GroupDefinitionUpdateException:Name is limited to 100 characters
org.rhq.enterprise.server.resource.group.definition.exception.GroupDefinitionUpdateException:Name is limited to 100 characters

Expected results:
Since the field is apparently limited to 100 chars, we should probably limit how much users can actually enter into this box.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Corey Welton 2011-03-28 17:53:40 UTC
Actually the same thing goes for Description field.  I'll include that here rather than writing up a new bug for that field.

Comment 2 Mike Thompson 2012-01-27 15:25:21 UTC
I could not reproduce. I checked both the Dynagroup name and description fields with 200 character strings and then again with 50 character strings (for positive and negative test cases).

This is a dup of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=734231, which was fixed a while back.
