Error description

  • When using a url-open which is attempting to process backend
    errors, the url-open may not process backend errors if it is
    first redirected.
    
    For example, when using the urlopen module in GatewayScript and
    the backend responds with a HTTP 400 status code, this will not
    be considered an error from the callback. However, if the backed
    returns a redirect such as a HTTP 302 status code and the
    redirect location returns a HTTP 400 status code this will be
    considered an error in the callback.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When using a url-open which is attempting to process backend
    errors, the url-open may not process backend errors if it is
    first redirected. This causes the url-open to behave differently
     for error handling in the case where redirection occurs when
    compared to the case where no redirection occurs making correct
    error handling difficult.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Fix is available in 7.7.0.0.
