It is possible to modify the Department Name on the Departments List view to include the forward slash (/) character. The Department Name should not allow this character as part of its name to be saved.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. In Classic UI, go to the Departments List view 
    Home => Organization => Departments 
  2. For an existing Department, click into the Department name cell from the list 
  3. Change its name, and include the forward slash character (/) as part of the name 
    For example: Development/Test
  4. Click the 'Save' button 

Expected Results: The Department Name is not saved, and the error is displayed ERROR OBS-0221: Slash character not allowed

Actual Results: The Department Name is saved with the slash character causing various potential problems on the application.


Clarity PPM Release 15.x 




Fixed in Release 16.0.0.

Workaround: Revert the changes to exclude the (/) slash character from the name.
