Subject Re: [Question] GUI and failed async commands
Date Tue, 27 Jan 2015 19:33:22 GMT
Yeah it is somewhat confusing experience.
Async api has 2 parts -
1. Sync part - does basic checks, db creation/updates and returns job id
2. Async part - Does the actual business logic and contacting the resource

At some places UI returns on #1 itself reporting success, whereas in some
cases it waits till #2 gets over, not sure why this was done. Best would
be if some UI folks could explain the motivation behind this. Anyhow,
please do file a bug at Jira.
