     - attempt to delete the view
    
    A DXL error will be given.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • It is not possible to delete a view in DOORS when the name ends
    with full stop character.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The security code in DOORS to prevent directory traversal
    attacks(using ..\.. in paths to access other locations) does not
     allow any paths with ".." in them.  Modified to preserve the
    security but still allow filenames with multiple full stops.
    

Temporary fix

  • Rename the view to not use a full stop before deleting it.
