Issue/Introduction

Customer found an issue where the variable picker within AWI would create a VARA Reference which leads to an error when executing the JOBP.

 

2. Steps to reproduce (incl. expected/documented vs. actual behavior)

  • create a JOBP
  • add a task
  • edit the task properties
  • click the variable picker {&}

    on the 'alias' field

  • choose a VARA object and a valid key and column
    => the String will look like this {VA.DRVAT.K13, 001, 1}

    but it needs to look like this

    {VA.DRVAT.K13,001,1}

    to work

Something like the following message may occur:

U00007060 Activation error in 'JOBS.WIN.NEW.105'. Alias name '{1.AE-27623,' is not valid.
