Setting httpd directive via Scope fails

Running the following command:

cpcmd scope:set apache.system-directive '[BROTLI,STRICT,CACHE_MEMORY,STATUS]'

# this doesn't work any better
cpcmd scope:set apache.system-directive '["BROTLI","STRICT","CACHE_MEMORY","STATUS"]'

Results in a broken directive, as some array to string conversion occurs:

[root@web6 ~]# cpcmd scope:get apache.system-directive
- Array

Error trace:

  • Can you reproduce this bug reliably?
    Yes, reproduced on 2 nodes.

Fixed in edge. Expected input is a single directive, rather than list. Expanded the supported types to accept a list or hash (directive: bool).

Only time you would need something like that would be if the value could be parsed as a float or int and you’d like for it to be a string, e.g. cpcmd -d site1 web:add-subdomain 1 would be invalid because 1 is interpreted as an integer, cpcmd -d site1 web:add-subdomain "'1'" would be correct, note the inner + outer quotes. Outer quotes is to protect shell interpolation from stripping the inner quotes.
