Description Martin Kourim 2017-11-29 15:51:48 UTC
Description of problem:
When custom button action of generic objects is executed no task is created, so it's not possible to check if the action was successful.
This is not consistent with execution of methods associated with the generic object.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create generic object class with method and custom button
2. create generic object instance
3. run the method:
POST /api/generic_objects/:id
   "action": "inspectme"
    "success": true,
    "message": "Invoked method myclass05#inspectme for Generic Object id: 4 name: go_name05",
    "task_id": "2",
    "task_href": "https://<addr>/api/tasks/2",
    "href": "https://<addr>/api/generic_objects/4"
<= task is created

4. run the button:
POST /api/generic_objects/:id
   "action": "btn01"
    "success": true,
    "message": "Invoked custom action btn01 for generic_objects id: 1",
    "href": "https://<addr>/api/generic_objects/1"
<= no task is created
