Security Level: Default (Default Security Scheme)
Events whose description contains a URL with arguments that themselves contain URL-encoded characters, have that URL truncated in an unexpected way.
This does not affect event parameters, and does not respect CDATA tags in the event description.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Send an event, via eventd XML or ReST:
2. Find the event in the OpenNMS web UI, and compare the Description field to what was sent.
3. Find the events.eventdescr and event_parameters.value in the OpenNMS database, and compare them with each other and with what was sent.
The full URL should appear in the event description, both in the web UI and in the database
The URL is truncated in the event description in both the web UI and the database, but the event parameter's value is not truncated.
