When Team Areas has "&" in the name, error CRJAZ6043E pops up in RTC 6.0.2


Karthik Krishnan (8825118163) | asked Nov 23 '16, 5:27 a.m.
We have team names for example "RTC & Tools".

After upgrading to RTC 6.0.2, iFix 005, we are unable to change anything on the "team area" due to the presence of "&" and RTC throws error

CRJAZ6043E The area cannot be created because its name includes one or more of these invalid characters: & < > " ' /

Is this newly introduced in RTC 6.0.2?

Hi Karthik,

Yes, its newly introduced.

The following characters are not allowed anymore.

     &,', ", <, >, /   (ampersand, single quote, double quote, greater
than , smaller than, forward slash)

Remove the restricted characters and save the project.

Regards,
Arun.

Of course that works but all the automation we have been failing after we upgraded.

It is sad that working things are broken and no updates in release notes.
