Project identifier model constraint doesn't match with text_project_identifier_info and JS-generated identifiers
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
- the text of
text_project_identifier_info(Only lower case letters (a-z), numbers, dashes and underscores are allowed, must start with a lower case letter.<br />Once saved, the identifier cannot be changed.)
- the auto-generated identifiers from #9225
and the actual enforced model constraint for the project identifier (
are allowed and seem to work properly. This can be tested by adding the following test assertions to
diff --git a/test/unit/project_test.rb b/test/unit/project_test.rb index 24f6958..a0bd95f 100644 --- a/test/unit/project_test.rb +++ b/test/unit/project_test.rb @@ -116,7 +116,10 @@ class ProjectTest < ActiveSupport::TestCase "ab-12" => true, "ab_12" => true, "12" => false, - "new" => false} + "new" => false, + "12ab" => true, + "-12ab" => true, + "_12ab" => true} to_test.each do |identifier, valid| p = Project.new
Despite the textual hint and the auto-generated project identifiers, the above given test assertions succeed without any problems.IMO there are two ways of solving this:
- change the model constraint to match the textual hint and JS-project identifier generation script — that is to not allow project identifiers starting with a number, dash or underscore;
- change the textual hint and JS-project identifier generation script to match the actual model constraint — which is to allow project identifiers starting with a number, dash or underscore.
I think that the second solution is the best, because that won't affect already existing projects with identifiers starting with these characters. I'd like to get some feedback on this matter before we make a change either way.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated the information messages that were obviously wrong.
OTOH, I think it's OK to keep the JS code as it is. Even if not mandatory, it's better to default to an identifier that starts with a lower case letter.
