Bug #6375

Updated by Marek Hulán over 6 years ago

When you try to create a new parameter for some operating system with id 1, using following parameters, you result in 422 error

The issue is in that reference_id is set to nil (this is inspect of @parameter from create action)

#<OsParameter id: nil, name: "ssh_public_key", value: "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAABIwAAAQEA5mX2JV6T6CVCRmT...", reference_id: nil, created_at: nil, updated_at: nil, type: "OsParameter", priority: 2>

git bisect found #5129 and "691f0a1a809569d125e9385e60f8f1e1c8d88061": as a source of the issue. It seems that for some reason we enforce nil for reference_id when it's set to 1. Related PR Note that it was merged to 1.5.2
