Error description

  • The user observed that changes to a DataPower B2B Gateway using
    the Blueprint console caused unexpected stripping of the set
    Document Storage Location. While "(default)" and "nfs-..." are
    common and unaffected, this user against best practices set
    "local:///ondisk" as Document Storage Location via CLI (against
    best practices because this way the payloads are not stored in
    the encrypted B2B partition of DP). The classic WebGUI is able
    to render "local:///ondisk" successfully and retain it. However
    Blueprint does strip it on editing other fields of the B2BGW.
    Before APAR IT19552 (7.5.2.7) Blueprint will strip down to
    "local:/" which completely breaks the desired setting.
    With APAR IT19552 there is still a stripping from
    "local:///ondisk" to "local:/ondisk" - while this is
    technically equivalent, it still breaks with existing
    conventions so is expected to be fixed in Blueprint to work
    seamless like in WebGUI.
    

Local fix

  • Use WebGUI instead of Blueprint to change B2BGW config if not
    using standard Document Storage Location like "(default)" or
    "nfs-..." but unusual location set via CLI like
    "local:///ondisk". The best practice is to avoid non-standard
    Document Storage Location anyway.
    

Problem summary

  • DataPower BluePrint console resets document locations from
    three forward slashes to one.
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
