Target version:2.4.4
Resolution:Fixed Affected version:


Our project custom field is an integer. When we update its value, we get an error message if we enter letters (that's fine) but we can enter and save spaces.
A string composed of spaces should not be authorized.

When the custom_value table contains wrong spaces values, it breaks some requests on custom fields because the current requests cast the values to decimals (like in the sql_for_field method in the query class).
