Issue/Introduction

Leading space in VARA key/value definition is invisible

Investigation:
When adding a key or value with leading space(s), so [space]key or [space]value, these spaces are invisible unless the line is selected.

You can actually see the key/value jump to the right when selecting the line

The person changing the VARA saves the variable, looks over it one more time, maybe even with a second pair of eyes, and they don’t see that they accidentally added a space. Only when they mark the key/value the issue can be detected.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : AUTOMIC WEB INTERFACE

Resolution

A fix should be provided in the next major release
