Getting warning message in a popup saying "Failed to evaluate. Invalid arguments" for jelly form control validateButton. I am getting this pop up irrespective of actual result of validation.
This is happening only in Internet Explorer(8 and 9). This is not getting reproduced when running jenkins using "mvn hpi:run" but
getting reproduced when running jenkins using command "java -jar jenkins.war" and then manually importing hpi file from advanced tab.
For complete details , refer to discussion in
Sample to reproduce this issue is available in my github
or alternatively you can install https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/SCTMExecutor plugin and try to validate in global configuration in IE.
For validate button form control , implementation is available @ scripts/hudson-behavior.js
In validate function , we are using a custom function geval which is causing the issue.
If i replace geval with eval i see that everything works as expected in IE as well.
I will be submitting the fix in git shortly
