Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 755673
Adding new drift: includes/excludes - Path property required?
Last modified: 2015-11-01 19:42:13 EST
This one is just a little usability enhancement
Description of problem: When defining includes/excludes in new drift there is no need to require path property not to be empty. For case, when I have base directory set to lets say /opt/drifts and I want to only specify a few include masks I am forced to put '.' into Path field.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new drift from File-System Template
2. Define some base dir
3. Specify you want to include only *.txt files within base dir
Actual results: you are forced to insert '.' symbol to 'Path' property
Expected results: It would be more simple if 'Path' property could be empty and would mean, include given mask within base directory
(8:29:08 PM) ccrouch: jsanda: this seems a reasonable request: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=755673, but for jon3 this should be a note in the docs right?
(8:29:34 PM) jsanda: looking...
(8:30:44 PM) jsanda: definitely a reasonable request
(8:31:01 PM) jsanda: just trying to remember if there was a good reason we required the field to be non-empty
(8:31:24 PM) jsanda: whatever the reason, must not have been good enough because i can't think of it :-)

It's now optional. It will be set to "." by default in the GUI. But even
if omitted will again get set to "." at the lower levels.
verified RHQ 3, master. observed the default set to '.' ... and additionally tested with that '.' omitted.
