CA Data Protection policies can include complex data lookups.  A complex data lookup is a lookup command that encompasses more than one command syntax and includes Boolean logic operators.

An issue has been identified where some data lookup commands which contain Boolean operators may fail to trigger policy depending upon the expression process order.

For example:

The expression (A AND B) fails to trigger, but the expression (B AND A) works as expected, where A, B are the complex data lookup commands.

CA Data Protection 15.2
An issue has been identified with the implementation of complex data lookups using Boolean operators.
FIX:RO94098 (incorporating Client_15.20_HF014, Client_x64_15.20_HF015, Server_15.20_HF012 and Server_x64_15.20_HF013) corrects fixes the Boolean logic flow used in complex data lookup commands.  After FIX:RO94098, individual lookup commands are processed in the correct order with the proper Boolean operator applied to ensure that policy triggers correctly.

FIX:RO94098 is available to download from the CA Support Portal (
