Description Antonin Pagac 2016-07-21 14:48:16 UTC
Description of problem:
When doing a disconnected deployment, when pasting a link to the Content Mirror URL field, there is an error:

'Missing http protocol'

The link is to the known server we use when we are trying disconnected mode. The link looks like:


I can ping the server and it seems to be up. There is no message about checking link in production.log. I tried also supplying invalid URL or leave the field blank, the error is always the same.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a deployment, go to the Subscriptions section
2. Click on 'No, Satellite will have restricted network access.'
3. Supply a valid link to the Content Mirror URL field
4. After a while the error appears bellow the field

Actual results:
'Missing http protocol' appears when valid link is supplied

Expected results:
No error should appear when valid link is supplied

Comment 1 Antonin Pagac 2016-07-21 15:00:00 UTC
Update: I looked at the logs and it seems that there was some whitespace character copied with the link to the server. It was not visible in the field with the link when I pasted it there. When I deleted first part of the link and re-typed manually, the checking works as expected:

'Content mirror verified'

In the log the link looked like this:


I leave it up to somebody else, if we want to implement some kind of checking for this, or just close this BZ.

I'll add a warning if whitespace is found in the supplied URL, at least that should call attention to it directly.

Comment 6 James Olin Oden 2016-08-15 14:21:54 UTC
Verified for QCI-1.0-RHEL-7-20160812.t.0

Did the steps listed above but entered a URL with a space at the end.   The 
application now says:

   URL contains whitespace

which is what we want.
