Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
N/A

Text attribute values and enumeration values of custom documentation in the Automated Web Interface (AWI) version 12.0.0 doesn't allow special characters.

Investigation

The only charaters allowed are:
  • A-Z
  • 0-9
  • _ (underscore)
  • . (period)
  • - (hyphen)
  • : (semicolon)
These should be the restrictions for the attribute names, but not for the values. In the Java UserInterface (UI) it was possible to use all characters for the values.


 

Cause

Cause type:
Defect
Root Cause: Incorrect check for attribute text and enumeration values in the structured documentation tabs:Only these characters are allowed: A-Z, 0-9 and _.-: Valid characters should be aligned with the Rich Client. Only the reserved XML characters should be encoded
