Error description

  • When attempting to generate a user-based report using the IBM
    Rational License Key Server (RLKS) Administration and Reporting
    Tool (ART), the report will fail with a "no data found" error.
    Attempting to generate the same report using an English Locale
    works and generates output.
    
    Examination of the ART logs shows this stack trace:
    "ERROR 2015-08-04 05:19:58,591
    [http-bio-4743-exec-20][com.ibm.rcl.reporting.util.Utilities][82
    47] - The name "Heures_de_licence_ou_Nombre_d'accᅦs" is not
    legal for JDOM/XML elements: XML names cannot contain the
    character "'".
    org.jdom.IllegalNameException: The name
    "Heures_de_licence_ou_Nombre_d'accᅦs" is not legal for JDOM/XML
    elements: XML names cannot contain the character "'".

    ta(Utilities.java:7725)
    ...
    
    The translated string for "License Hours or Number of accesses"
    contains an accented character, which is not valid as an XML
    element name.
    

Local fix

  • Generate the report using an English locale.
