Issue/Introduction

When viewing a PTF I can see CAPxxxx(where xxxx is a year and month eg. 2002 for February 2020), but does CA RS 2002 mean the same thing as CAP2002?

Environment

Release : 6.0

Component : CSM

Resolution

CAPxxxx (eg.CAP2002) is the year and month the PTF has been created and published within the system.  However, the CA RS 2002 date reflects all of the PTFs that have been published and verified to be problem free from the previous month.  Example: CA RS 2002 will contain 'error free' ptfs from January 2020 (the previous month).
