How Reproducible ================


Steps to Reproduce ==================

1. Make an HTTP POST request to api/v2/organizations, and only specify a name.
2. Alternately, clone the robottelo source code and execute `nosetests -c robottelo.properties tests/foreman/api/test_organization_v2.py`
3. Alternately, clone the robottelo source code and execute `python -m unittest tests.foreman.api.test_organization_v2`

Actual Results ==============

An HTTP 500 error with the following error message:
"undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass"

Expected Results ================

Expected an HTTP 201 response status code.

Additional Info ===============

For test source code, see: https://github.com/omaciel/robottelo/blob/master/tests/foreman/api/test_organization_v2.py#L56

There is already a similar test here: https://github.com/omaciel/robottelo/blob/master/tests/foreman/api/test_org.py#L22

However, the existing tests specifies a blank label and description, whereas the failing test completely omits a label and description.

Fixes #6786 - Handle error when no taxonomy params get sent

Basically, no organization params are getting sent as the bug reporter is not
using json and not using wrapped params. You can also test this by doing:

curl -X POST http://localhost:3000/api/v2/organizations

This change prevents the following error from getting raised:

Processing by Api::V2::OrganizationsController#create as JSON
Parameters: {"description"=>"biz", "name"=>"foo", "label"=>"bar", "apiv"=>"v2"}
Expire fragment views/tabs_and_title_records-1 (0.1ms)
Authorized user admin(Admin User)
undefined method `[]' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError)
