Issue/Introduction

Spectrum and Service Desk integration and when is generate an alarm automatically is generate a Ticket in Service Desk

On Spectrum this integration generate a link for Service Desk like this:
http://10.80.20.41:8080/CAisd/pdmweb.exe?OP=SHOW_DETAIL+FACTORY=iss+PERSID=cr:401076

But on CAPC web page Device Alarms the Trouble ID show this link:
http://10.80.20.41:8080/CAisd/pdmweb.exe?OP=SHOW_DETAIL%20FACTORY=iss%20PERSID=cr:401076

We can see that the CAPC changes the URL replacing the “+” sighs with spaces (%20) and Service Desk will not accept it.

Service Desk error after logon using the URL from CAPC:
AHD04617: AHD04617:Unknown webengine operation "SHOW_DETAIL FACTORY=iss PERSID=cr:401076"



 

Cause

CAPC use the escaping the URL which should be done due to security concerns
%20 the escaped way to pass SPACE

Environment

Release : 3.7
Component : IM Reporting / Admin / Configuration

Resolution

Use '&' in the place of '+' to open the Service Desk URL

Below URL that works:
http://10.80.20.41:8080/CAisd/pdmweb.exe?OP=SHOW_DETAIL&FACTORY=iss&PERSID=cr:401076

The Service Desk integration procedure that's generating the URL needs to be updated.

Please talk to Spectrum team regards this integration...
