Error description

  • When adding or modifying routing rules in the ODR using the
    admin console "Middleware servers > yourODRNAME> Routing
    policy HTTP rules" page there are several issues.
    1) When adding several rules with identical criteria, they
    will validate properly but when attempting to save them they
    will simply delete the duplicate rules as this is not
    allowed. This is confusing to the customer. Need to make it
    so the rules do not validate if they are identical and it
    needs to show a proper error message to the user.
    2) When there are more than 1 routing rules, the drop down
    menu's when editing the topmost rule are all broken. The
    most notable of which will occur if trying to switch the
    cell name which will blank out the existing rule criteria
    and not show proper drop down menus's. These menu functions
    need to be fixed so they actually work.

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Some ODR rules dropdown menu's stop     *
    *                      working and duplicate rules don't throw *
    *                      an error properly                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When creating and editing rules for the ODR, some of the drop
    down selectors will not work in specific circumstances.
    Additionally, duplicate rules will disappear instead of alerting
    that they are invalid.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed the drop down selectors and made it so duplicate rules
    will now display an error during validation so the user can
    properly address the issue.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in fix
    packs 8.5.5.16 and 9.0.5.0.  Please refer to the Recommended
