APAR status

  • Closed as unreproducible.

Error description

  • When trying to create an OSLC Link to an artifact in another
    application, if the title of the artifact contains single or odd
    number of '[' characters, link creation fails silently.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Create an artifact in RQM or Rational Change
    - Have the title as -
    Check behavior of [ character
    - Now, login to DOORS and open a module
    - Choose to create new link (Validated By or Implemented By)
    - Choose Select artifact, and select the newly created artifact
    with '[' character
    - Click OK
    
    You will observe that the link is not created in both the
    applications. There's no error shown as well.
    

Local fix

  • Modify the title to include a following ']' character.
    Essentially, every opening [ char should be followed with
    closing ] char
    For example, modify the title in the above example to be:
    Check behavior of [] character
