Error description

  • abstract:
    Attempts to link an IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) artifact
    from a IBM Rational Asset Manager asset containing double quotes
    in its name result in the related artifact link not being
    created in RTC.
    
    error_description:
     Steps to reproduce the problem:
    1. Create new asset of type containing an attribute type of
    resource.
    2. Name the asset such as it will contain 'double quotes'
    You can choose an existing one if you have already one matching
    the above criteria
    3. Select 'Add Resource Link' on the asset 'Submit' or 'Modify'
    page,
    4. Select an appropriate Friend Server and Resource
    5. Select and existing Work Item to link to the asset with or
    create a new one
    6. Save/update the asset once the link is added,
    Result
    The link to the RTC Work Item is added to the asset as expected.
    The link is displayed correctly. Everything is fine from the
    asset point of view.
    But when you open the Work Item and navigate to the link tab,
    you will see that the related artifact link was not created as
    expected.
    
    workaround:
     There is no known workaround at this time except avoiding to
    use double quotes in the asset name.
