Issue/Introduction

Using the AWI (and also the JAVA UI) it is not possible to create or save a CALE Object without the required parameters, but using the AE REST API it is possible to do so and when trying to open this corrupted object, an error is displayed.

 

Cause

Currently, AE REST API does not have a sophisticated method to check the coherence and required parameters for each type of object that is about the be created via a json file.

Environment

Release : 12.2 and superior

Component : AUTOMATION ENGINE

Subcomponent: AE Rest API

Resolution

Currently there is no json check on the AE Rest API Objects endpoint.


A Product Enhancement Request has been created for that:
