Description Ilanit Stein 2018-01-11 13:33:50 UTC
Description of problem:
Add RHV-4.1 provider to CFME with wrong password, and press "validate" or
Edit a RHV provider that CFME is already connected, and has valid credentials: Enter a wrong password, and press "validate".
The error that will appear in the UI will be:

"Credential validation was not successful: MiqException::MiqInvalidCredentialsError"

Running the same or RHV-3.6, generate a more "friendly" error message:
"Credential validation was not successful: Incorrect user name or password."

Please change the error for RHV providers, that supports api version 4 (like RHV-4.1), to be the same error as for providers that support api version 3 (like RHV-3.6).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Compared to RHV-3.6.12-4)

How reproducible:
