Many of our forms use GET. They should be using POST unless there is a great reason not to.
Comment 4 Dan Callaghan 2016-07-27 03:02:29 EDT
I think the only remaining forms which are improperly submitted using GET are:

/save_note (Notes tab on the system page)
/save_exclude (Excluded Families tab on the system page)
/really_cancel (old job cancellation page)
/tasks/disable_from_ui (Disable button on tasks grid)
/configuration/remove (Clear Current Value button on config grid)
/configuration/save (form on config item page)
/retentiontag/delete (Delete button on retention tags grid)
/retentiontag/save (form on new retention tag page)
/retentiontag/save_edit (form on edit retention tag page)
/keytypes/remove (Remove button on key types grid)
/keytypes/save (form on new key type page and edit key type page)
/osversions/save (form on OS version page)

I'm closing this particular bug, since it is something which will be fixed eventually by moving to back bone and a REST api. Implementing API endpoints and using Backbone will make it much harder to use GET instead of POST (perhaps it's not even possible).
