Issue/Introduction

REST API can create objects with lowercase names

The object can be rename after creation but when it is removed with DB Unload before changing the name this leads to an error.


An example of the POST request that causes this (lowercase characters in bold):

http://<AE>:<JCP_port>/ae/api/v1/<client>/objects

JSON content:
{
  "path": "MAINFOLDER/SUBFOLDER/",
  "data": {
        "usrg": {
            "metadata": {
                "version": "12.2.2"
            },
            "general_attributes": {
                "minimum_ae_version": "11.2",
                "child_flags": "00000000000000000000000000000000",
                "last_runtimes": "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA",
                "name": "USRG.my.usrg",
                "type": "USRG",
                "versioning_id": " "
            },
            "user_group_attributes": {
                "privileges": "17286974797311"
            },
            "authorizations": {
                "auth_group": "1",
                "bitcode": "255",
                "filter_object_type": "*",
                "filter_object_name": "*",
                "filter_agent_name1": "*",
                "filter_agent_name2": "*",
                "filter_user_id1": "*",
                "filter_user_id2": "*",
                "filter_file_names1": "*",
                "filter_file_names2": "*",
                "line_number": "1"
            }
        }
    }
