CA Endevor Software Change Manager (SCM) CA Endevor Software Change Manager - ECLIPSE Plugin (SCM)

Issue/Introduction

We have some elements with the ¦ symbol in the source (rather than the solid pipe symbol | )

This does not get converted correctly when we retrieve the element with the REST API, it does however get converted correctly with the Eclipse plug in.

API version 18.1.2

This is what we have coded in the .cfg file

CodePage="cp01140"        

Encoding="cp01140"        

CharacterSet="ISO8859-1"  

LFSEncoding="ISO8859-1"   

ContentType="Text"        



Environment

Release : 18.1

Component : CA Endevor Software Change Manager

Resolution

The broken bar character is Unicode, update the Endevor.cfg and use UTF-8 for CharacterSet and LFSEncoding

CodePage="cp01140"        

Encoding="cp01140"        

CharacterSet="UTF-8"  

LFSEncoding="UTF-8"   

ContentType="Text"        

Restart Tomcat after the change.

 

Also update Eclipse Encoding accordingly: 

Go to Eclipse->Windows->Preferences->General->Workspace

Update the text file encoding from Cp1252(default) to other (choose UTF-8 from drop down list) 

Restart Eclipse after the change.
