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.

Environment

Release : 12.2 / 12.3

Component : AUTOMIC WEB INTERFACE

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.

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
