After making some changes in a ticket, especially the Description field, no Activity Log is displayed on the "Activities" tab of a ticket. It shows as a blank as shown below.



Chrome Development tool shows an error message "Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid Unicode escape sequence" on Console as shown in the following screenshot.



If a string/line contains /u (backslash + u), such as a file path, in a field of an Activity Log, it will be handled as a Unicode Escape sequence. As a result, string/line will not displayed as expected or fail to be loaded.  


The problem can be fixed by the r12.9 Cumulative #1 patch, RO72246 (COREQ: RO72249). Please download them from CA Support Online and apply them to solve the problem.
