Error description

  • STEPS TO REPRODUCE :
    There could be rare situation where the Topology Discovery tool
    creates an operation with a /
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS :
    When recording against such created operation and then
    generating test data out of that, the path to the csv includes
    the operation name. The / is incorrectly converted into %252F,
    thus preventing the file to be found.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS :
    The Topology Discovery tool should not create such operation
    name which in turn, should not cause any trouble with the
    generated csv path filename.
    

Local fix

  • Rename the csv filename
