Error description

  • Application Process Requests can have Process Properties of type
    'Select', you can then select from a list of predefined
    properties when running this process. On the CLI or via the REST
    API you are able to input any value and it's accepted as a valid
    process property.
    
    1. Create a component AppValidPropertiesValidation, with version
    v1. Create an application AppValidPropertiesValidation,
    application process Proc.
    Define on application process Proc an application process
    property prop1 with type Select, allowed values value1 and
    value2, and mark it as required.
    2. Create json with a not-allowed property value value3 for
    property prop1
    3a) Run the process via REST API
    3b) Run the process via udclient
    Both succeed even though they should not since the property does
    not have an allowed value.
