Subject [jira] [Updated] (CLOUDSTACK-7312) ISO/volume format name checking is crude and doesn't work with advanced URLs
Date Tue, 12 Aug 2014 00:50:12 GMT

Min Chen updated CLOUDSTACK-7312:
---------------------------------

    Description: 
When registering ISO/Volume with CloudStack, it is necessary to provide a URL from which the
ISO/Volume can be downloaded.

SO/Volume name checking currently just looks at the very end of the url string. e.g.:

private void checkFormat(String format, String url) {
if((!url.toLowerCase().endsWith("vhd"))

This breaks functionality for  S3 pre-signed URL, or anything where the file extension is
not the last part of the URL. We should at least attempt to parse the URL for filename vs
parameters.


  was:
When registering ISOs with CloudStack, it is necessary to provide a URL from which the ISO
can be downloaded.

CloudStack expects and requires the URL to carry a file extension that matches the expected
iso, eg. ".iso", "iso.zip", "iso.bz2", "iso.gz". If the URL doesn't have such an extension,
it will be rejected, even if it is a perfectly valid URL from which an ISO can be downloaded.


        Summary: ISO/volume format name checking is crude and doesn't work with advanced URLs
 (was: ISOs cannot be downloaded from URLs without matching file extensions)
