Severity: 5-Cosmetic


The Template field in the Request Logging profile adds line break characters to long values.


The data stored has line break characters in it at every location where the text wraps inside the Template text box.


This occurs when there is a long string of text in the Template field for the Request Logging profile, for example, $DATE_NCSA [REQUEST] - [$HOST:$VIRTUAL_PORT] - $VIRTUAL_POOL_NAME - [SRC_PORT:$CLIENT_PORT] - $NCSA_COMBINED.


There is a partial workaround, depending on the length of the string and the width of your screen. Adjust the width of the Template field by clicking and dragging the lower-right corner of the field. The line breaks the system adds occur only when the text wraps inside the box when you save the profile (by pressing Finished on a new profile or Update on an existing one).

Fix Information

Line break characters are no longer added to long values in the Template field in the Request Logging profile, regardless of how the text wraps in the box.
