Severity: 3-Major


The REST endpoint for Character Sets returns items that are invalid to send back to the endpoint as a PATCH. This can cause an API client to get unexpected errors


Objects returned by the endpoint will fail validation when sent back to the endpoint. Additionally this will not match output from the same endpoint (if enabled) on 11.5.2-HF1+, and could confuse API clients that attempt to compare Security Policies.


A Security Policy exists with a Single-Byte Encoding configured, and REST API is being used.



Fix Information

The Character Sets endpoint will return items that are valid to be sent back in to the endpoint.
