Error description

  • When saving a report in the IBM Rational License Key server
    (RLKS) Administration and reporting tool (ART), saving a report
    title with an apostrophe character in the title can cause
    subsequent attempts to save report definitions to fail.
    
    Additionally, the presence of the apostrophe may cause all
    reports to become invisible on a subsequent login to the RLKS
    ART.
