Fix subdomain matching #3854


Copy link

varjolintu commented Nov 12, 2019

Type of change

  • Bug fix (non-breaking change which fixes an issue)

Description and Context

Fix for subdomain matching with Browser Integration. The previous fix handled the matching mostly based on the domain, and entry URL's with different subdomains were returned.

The behaviour is now following:

  • entry URL is only matched with or any subdomain under it.
  • entry URL is matched with any subdomain (or none) under

Also fixes matching with local files (handy for testing purposes). With those, a direct match between the page URL and entry URL is required.

Fixes #3848.

Testing strategy

Tested manually and with added automatic tests. Tests have some helpful comments added.

The tests are great but very fragile and difficult to follow. This is because they are a simple list without programmatic linkage between "valid" and "invalid" or expected to "match". This means we have to read comments and manually process them. I am merging for now, but these can be improved in the future perhaps with a QHash or structure that defines the test expectations per entry url.
