Issue/Introduction

AWI considers the exclamation mark "!" inside a line when displaying the Process section of a Job.
As a result, comparisons like "!=" inside a shell script are displayed in Green color instead of black.
Nonetheless, the script is succesfully interpreted by Unix agents.


Java UI 12.0.x shows the expected behavior.

Cause

In the script editor any token (word,etc.) was checked individually to see if it was a comment.

Correct behavior is that comment is only allowed to be at the beginning of the line.

Environment

Release : 12.2 / 12.3

Component : AUTOMIC WEB INTERFACE

Resolution

Workaround:

Ignore the text color if the line contains a ! as it will not be interpreted as a comment by the agent

Solution:

Will be fixed in future versions
