Question:
Creating unmanaged DSA via mgmt UI fails. e.g. you are creating a DSA called 'test-dsa'.
Looking at the detailed error message popup, you are seeing:

Error 
Create unmanaged DSA 'test-dsa' in environment 'DEV': [{"property":"instance.dsa-name","message":"does not match pattern \"(.+=.+|^$)\""}] 
Answer:
The reason being one of the required field 'DSA Name*' is not defined properly. Requirement is to define this value in x500 format. Not in LDAP format or any user friendly name format.
You may have entered the 'Name' and 'DSA Name*' as 'test-dsa'.

Try the 'DSA Name*' in x500 format and it should work.
e.g. dc=mycompany,dc=com
