Opened: Mar 30, 2017
Severity: 5-Cosmetic

Symptoms

Setting invalid score value (for example, rule score or automatic transaction score) generates an unclear error in which the max value is printed as char (ASCII value of max, d is 100 in the following example): The value (144) is outside the acceptable value set [value equal to or less than d]. The message should read: The value (144) is outside the acceptable value set [value equal to or less than 100].

Impact

Misleading error message is posted. The impact is minimal. The correct value is used, it's just not displayed correctly in the error message.

Conditions

Setting invalid score value in tmsh (not in GUI).

Workaround

Use GUI to get the appropriate error message.

Fix Information

None
