Error description

  • Problem Description:
    
    When we have any hyperlink in DOORS Object Text, that has the
    angular bracket, then the xml created by RPE or the internal
    Document Generation are getting corrupted.
    
    For example - https://?server?/?port?/web or
    https://www.google.co.in/??parameter?
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    
    1. Restore the module I have provided in DOORS 9.5.1.1
    2. Export the module using File ? Export ? Document Generation ?
    Export.
    3. You will observe that the report generation take a long time
    and at last you have to cancel the generation. This also seems
    to be a bug in the inbuilt report generation from DOORS.
    4. Navigate to ?C:\Users\?local Profile?\AppData\Local\Temp\RPE?
    or a similar temp location on your system and look for a file
    called ?rpe_sample_local.log?
    5. You will see an entry ?Error is: The value of attribute
    'href' must not contain the '?' character.?
    6. Open the file ?doorsXMLxxxx-xxx-xx-xxx.xml? inside
    ?\temp\tmpDOORS\?folder with a random numbering?\?. You will be
    able to observe the issue.
    
    Workaround: No workaround
