New objects cannot be created in Folders with names starting with "Favorites"

Error Message :

When a Folder is created anywhere in the normal Folder hierarchy and its name begins with the word "Favorites", it is not possible to create new objects in this folder. However, it is possible to move objects to the Folder as if it were the correct Favorites folder.

  1. In the Java User Interface, create a Folder within the normal Folder structure and name it "Favorites_Backup"
  2.  Open this new Folder. When attempting to add a new object, the correct context menu is missing for this action.
  3. The only available context menu is the one specific to Favorites, which allows adding folders but not objects.



OS Version: N/A


Cause type:
Root Cause: It is not possible to create objects in a folder starting with "Favorites".
