Why do we need to use only AL32UTF8 character set while creating a database for CLM in oracle?

CLM help page on "setting up a Oracle db" I see IBM have specified that one should use AL32UTF8  character set while creating a database for CLM in oracle.

Is there any specific reason for this?

Thanks

Hi Nicky,
I am not sure about the answer, anyway this will be the first thing that support checks if you have any problem with database. Anyway what is the reason you are asking? Do you have already database set in different encoding?

 Hi Krzysztof,

I am trying to integrate Clearquest with RRC.
Here clearquest database in oracle is create with character set WE8ISO8859P1(Western European 8-bit ISO 8859 Part 1)
and CLM database base in oracle is currently set to AL32UTF8. but after integration while i am trying to link a requirement from RRC to a record in CQ, if the requirement has spaces or symbols. It throws and error.

Hi Nicky,
How you are going to integrate CQ with RRC? Do you use information from infocenter?
Also can you show us the error you have?


nicky john commented May 30 '14, 5:51 a.m.

i am not able to upload the snapshot.
anyways i am integrating using the OSLC method.

Please follow the below link to view the  method i am using for the integration.
CQ_RRC_integration.

Hi Nicky,
It is really weird for me that wrong database encoding has caused issues with OSLC. It is potential candidate for a defect if it is true. What is exactly error message you see?

 Hi Krzysztof,

Given below is the error messsage that appears while trying to link CQ records to RRC requirements.

CRMMD1785E The field "oslcl_label" contains characters that are not supported by the data code page, "20127 (US-ASCII)". The following characters are invalid:
  at 10
  at 28
  at 33
  at 42
  at 47
CRMMD1792E There are 2 additional invalid characters in this field.

 Setting character set to Unicode (AL32UTF8) enables you to store multiple language groups.

See http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYMRC_4.0.6/com.ibm.jazz.install.doc/topics/t_s_server_installation_setup_oracle.html for more information about creating Oracle databases and tablespace.

Thanks,

Hi Michael,


Thanks for the reply. 
Further is it possible to configure CLM on oracle with character set as WE8ISO8859P1 (Western European 8-bit ISO 8859 Part 1)
