After a Folder is renamed the extended search is no longer working correctly with the CA Automic Web Interface (AWI). 
Depending if the search is executed within the renamed folder or on a higher level the search results are different. 

There is a Main Folder named "Search-Main". In this folder is a folder "Search-Sub" and in this folder there is a folder "Search-SubSub". In all these folders are one script object per folder. 

When executing the extended search everything is correct. No matter from which folder the search is done. 

If the first Sub folder is now renamed from "Search-Sub" to "Search-Sub-Rename" the result is different: 

When executing the extended search from the Main folder "Search-Main" the objects are found in the underlying folders however the path is no longer correct for the objects found:

When executing the extended search from the renamed folder "Search-Sub-Rename" no objects are found anymore.

It does not matter what time elapsed between the rename and the search the result is always the same.
The object search in AWI displays the old folder name in the Folder Path column. Folder paths are not updated in search results after renaming a folder. After the fix the search results will show the updated folder name.
Please upgrade to a fix version mentioned below or a higher one if available.
