Description Jeff Weiss 2013-06-18 14:51:41 UTC
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create an org
2.  As org name enter the following character: ↽

Actual results:
Name cannot contain characters other than alpha numerals, space, '_', '-'

Expected results:
Org created

Additional info:
Other characters do work, eg 䘦 or ᅈ
Seems like the range of allowed characters has been restricted, I am not familiar enough with UTF8 to know whether legitimate names in non-latin languages will be disallowed because of this, but it appears to be the case.

Comment 1 RHEL Program Management 2013-06-18 15:04:52 UTC
Since this issue was entered in Red Hat Bugzilla, the release flag has been
set to ? to ensure that it is properly evaluated for this release.

Comment 3 Jeff Weiss 2013-06-18 17:53:14 UTC
Note another thing that was broken with the same change in katello, was orgs with a "." in the name.

So another testcase is to create an org called "foo.bar".  It should succeed.

Comment 4 Adam Price 2013-06-18 19:39:56 UTC
everything should be allowed except <, >, and /

Comment 5 Jeff Weiss 2013-06-18 20:52:18 UTC
Superseded by 975593
