Opened: Nov 09, 2018
Severity: 2-Critical

Symptoms

REST PUT fails to update the object description when proxy-ca-cert and proxy-ca-key are not configured, and triggers an error: SSL forward proxy RSA CA key is missing.

Impact

REST PUT operation cannot be used to update/modify the description.

Conditions

Issue is seen only with REST PUT operation, and when proxy-ca-cert and proxy-ca-key are not configured.

Workaround

You can use either of the following: -- You can use TMSH to update/modify the description, even if proxy-ca-cert and proxy-ca-key are not configured. -- You can also use PATCH operation and send only the required field which need modification.

Fix Information

None
