  Validate setting-based property validation

Validators (such as LengthPropertyValidator) may be activated (if configured) to validate property data after content data is sent to the back-end, and the validators validate property in line with settings provided by developers (such as  LengthValidationSettings).

Several types of settings are handled by developers only and Optimizely stores them in the database without any validation, even though data could be wrong (such as maximum < minimum). To make validation consistent and valid, Optimizely handles the validation of validator settings before saving them.

  • Maximum and Minimum may not be null at the same time.
  • Maximum should be greater than Minimum
  • For RegularExpressionValidationSettings and ItemRegularExpressionValidationSettings, the pattern used in validation process may not be null or empty.

These rules apply to the following:

  • LengthValidationSettings
  • RangeDateValidationSettings
  • RangeFloatNumberValidationSettings
  • RangeNumberValidationSettings
  • ItemLengthValidationSettings
  • ItemRangeDateValidationSettings
  • ItemRangeFloatNumberValidationSettings
  • ItemRangeNumberValidationSettings

  Synchronous operations are disallowed when getting content

Prevent `Synchronous operations are disallowed` error when getting JSON from the server

Use ClientResourceOptions.JsonResponseBuffer setting for both input and output memory buffer threshold when serializing/deserializing using the Newtonsoft serializer.

It has to be increased when using a global newtonsoft serializer and need to return big amounts of data (previous default was 30 kb).

  SQL exception occurred when deleting a block that was being used as inlineBlock of ContentArea

Fixed an issue where a SQL exception occurred when deleting a block that was being used as inlineBlock of ContentArea.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a block type (either typed on a .NET model or through Admin view) with a property (such as a string property called Heading).

2. Create a page instance of a type that contains a content area and assign an instance of an inline block using above block type, such as through the following code.

var page = _contentRepository.GetDefault<StandardPage>(ContentReference.StartPage);{{        }}
  page.Name = "ToBeDeleted";{{        }}
  page.MainContentArea = new ContentArea();
{{  page.MainContentArea.Items.Add(new ContentAreaItem { }}
    InlineBlock = _blockPropertyFactory.Create<InlineBlock>(b => b.Heading = "someting") });
    _contentRepository.Save(page, SaveAction.Publish, AccessLevel.NoAccess);

3. If you created the block type from .NET code, remove the block type from the .NET code.

4. Go to Admin view and try to delete the block.
