Batch add/update element panel doesn’t allow wild characters in element name. Results in message ‘NAME MASKING NOT ALLOWED’. Wild characters are allowed in Endevor version 17.0. For example in version 18.1 batch add the below values are not allowed.                   


Release : 18.1

Component : CA Endevor Software Change Manager


The reason for the error "Name masking not allowed" is because there was a wildcard entered in the ELEMENT and MEMBER fields. If a wildcard is entered in the Element name field the action will fail just as it did in 17.0 . A wildcard can wildcard can only be entered in either the element name or the member name - not both. 


Then hit enter -
