----] W, [2017-11-07T18:18:37.712985 #33689:3fde8462af14]  WARN -- : DEPRECATION WARNING: Method deep_clone is deprecated and will be removed in Rails 5.1, as `ActionController::Parameters` no longer inherits from hash. Using this deprecated behavior exposes potential security problems. If you continue to use this method you may be creating a security vulnerability in your app that can be exploited. Instead, consider using one of these documented methods which are not deprecated: (called from copy_hash at /Users/yrudman/work/rh/manageiq/lib/vmdb/global_methods.rb:25)

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Click on User (Right Top Corner) ->Configuration -> Region (in the left tree) -> Red hat Updates -> Edit Registration -> Validate

Expected results:
NO Deprecation warning
