Description Martin Kourim 2017-11-28 14:50:22 UTC
Description of problem:
When custom button is added for Generic Object Definition the "resource_action" attribute points to https://<addr>/api/resource_action/:id
There's no "resource_action" collection.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create Generic Object Definition
2. add Button Group
3. add Button
4. GET /api/custom_buttons/:id?attributes=resource_action
5. check the "resource" action:
    "resource_action": {
        "href": "https://<addr>/api/resource_action/44",
        "id": "44",
        "resource_id": "1",
        "resource_type": "CustomButton",

Comment 2 Martin Kourim 2017-11-29 15:36:17 UTC
Even though the "resource_action" of custom button points to non-existent resource, the action is executed successfully:

POST /api/generic_objects/1
   "action": "btn01"

    "success": true,
    "message": "Invoked custom action btn01 for generic_objects id: 1",
    "href": "https://<addr>/api/generic_objects/1"
