Hank Beatty updated TC-151:
---------------------------
    Issue Type: New Feature  (was: Bug)

> Delivery Service XML IDs should be limited to lower-case letters
> ----------------------------------------------------------------

>                 Key: TC-151
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TC-151
>             Project: Traffic Control
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Traffic Ops
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.0
>            Reporter: Oren Shemesh
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: delivery_service, xml-id

> The DNS system is case-insensitive. Since a delivery service XML ID is used 
> as part of the FQDN of the cache being redirected to, two different DSs 
> cannot differ only by case.
> This leads to the conclusion that it is best if we limit the XML IDs of 
> delivery services to be lower-case only.
> This would achieve the following:
> 1. Make domain names used by TC 'conventional' (i.e. lower-case only)
> 2. Remove the possibility of a case-conflict between DSs
> 3. Currently, Traffic Router does not behave correctly when a DS XML ID 
> contains upper case letters. Limiting to lower-case would prevent the need to 
> fix this :-)
> Current problems with TR behaviour, when an XML ID contains opper-case letter 
> are:
> 1. The TR sends a redirect to a host FQDN which contains a lower-case version 
> of the DS XML ID
> 2. The TR does not resolve the lower-case version of the host FQDN.
> Here is an example to demo current bug in TR. DS XML ID is opencachehub-DT, 
> TR redirects to opencachehub-dt, and then refused to resolve the cache name 
> using this DS (a lot of irrelevant data was removed fro this text):
> $ curl -L -s -D - 
> http://tr.opencachehub-DT.stage-cdn.tc-stage.cqloud.com/video01.mp4 -v
> * Connected to tr.opencachehub-DT.stage-cdn.tc-stage.cqloud.com
