Do not use apostrophes in test case names

Reported by: pwg831@… Owned by: Roberto Longobardi
Priority: normal Component: TestManagerForTracPlugin
Severity: major Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.12

Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)

I happened to put an apostrophe into the name of a test case page and later tried to rename that page. The rename operation had the resulted in an Internal Error:

TypeError: coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found

... and all subsequent access to test catalogs and test cases failed with another Internal error.

The cure is to delete the wiki page and the testcase from the database (table wiki and table testcase.

I've put severity at major - it is unhealthy to people with high blood pressure if it happens in a large set of test cases.

Regards Theodor

PS. TestManager: Really nice work!

Hi Theodor, I have found some time to work on this problem.

Actually what you are trying to do, i.e. renaming a wiki page that is a test case, catalog or plan, should not be done. This because the page name is carefully crafted by the test manager for its own purposes, and is referenced in parts you may not even imagine ;-)

You should use the "move" test manager functions to move test cases around instead.

If you were trying to change the test case TITLE, instead, this can be easily done by editing the page and changing the text between == and ==.

I'm going to add an exception to be raised when someone tries to rename pages the way you did, prenventing the renaming operatio to occur, and with a meaningful message.

BTW, the problem you encountered was not related to the apostrophe in any way :D

Thanks for your interest in this plkugin and for your help.

Ciao, Roberto
