Bug with alias URLs
jcpetit last edited by
we found a bug in the alias URLs that probably appeared in the last 2.2.x
When a certificate is not valid, pfsense insert the error message into the alias file
Alias URL name: test
Alias URL: https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/test.txt
[2.2.5-RELEASE][root@test-fw]/root: cat /var/db/aliastables/test.txt
<title>400 - Bad Request</title>
Which causing rules to not be loaded.
Even worse, rules will probably not load after a reboot.
When an error occured, alias file should probably not be updated (or at least put empty)
Other bug: When this bug occured, applying rules gives a false result: "Done. The filter rules have been reloaded."

That's always been the case. The validation of fetched data is improved in 2.3 (though that reminds me I need to double check some various failure scenarios there), and the issue that makes it miss the filter load error has definitely been fixed.
