Problem:

The job to create Jaspersoft Users changes the userID value by replacing all the period symbols with an underscore symbol.  This causes the userID value to be different than the PPM userID and therefore, the user is not able to use Jaspersoft functionality. 

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Within CA PPM, create users with special characters like
User:  csk.admin / Password: Passwordr11
       User:  Test02@abc.com / Password: Passwordr11
       User:  admin / Password: Passwordr11
2. Assign 'Advanced Reporting' rights to the users and Launch 'Advanced Reporting' available in the menu 
3. Open Ad-hoc Views/Reports 
 
Expected Result: The Jaspersoft Userid is created correctly with the original special character of a period 
Actual Result: The Jaspersoft Userid is created by the job replacing all period symbols (.) with an underscore symbol (_)  

Environment:

Applies to all supported PAS environments for specified releases.

Cause:

Caused by CLRT-77758
