Business Space incorrectly parses the Common Name (CN) attribute if it contains the '\' character

Technote (troubleshooting)


A '\' character in the Common Name (CN) attribute causes Business Space to parse the Common Name incorrectly.


The error messages BMWMB0080E & SECJ0369E appear in your log file.


This issue is caused by a comma in the CN. The '\' character is an escape character used to escape the comma. This causes issues in the code consumed by the mashups.

This has been identified as a product defect under APAR LO69472.
