Cannot delete job named "Mike's test job"


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Duplicate
    • Component/s: core
    • Environment:
    • Similar Issues:


      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a Freestyle project named

      Mike's test job

      and configure it to just run a shell command on a single node.

      2. Run it once (at least that's what I did - it probably isn't necessary.)

      3. Attempt to delete it using the "Delete Project" link on the left hand side of the job page at http://jenkins/job/Mike's%20test%20job/

      Expected result:

      A confirmation dialog box is displayed and then the job is deleted.

      Actual result:

      Nothing much happens. The URL in my address bar changes to http://jenkins/job/Mike's%20test%20job/# though. If I go back to the main Jenkins page I can still see my job listed.

      I repeated the experiment using a job name that did contain spaces but not the quote character and was able to successfully delete the job. I conjecture that it's the quote character in the job name that is causing the problem.
