Ensure the regional and language settings on the Clarity PPM server is set to US English. If this doesn't resolve the issue, implement the language setting update in CSA as defined below:

(It's recommended to first make a backup of the properties.xml file, but this is a low impact change) 

  1. Login to the CSA
  2. Navigate to the Clarity server 
  3. Click on the Application tab 
  4. Under the section: "Application Instance: app", add -Duser.country=US -Duser.language=en to the Java VM Parmeters 
  5. Click Save
  6. Stop, deploy and start the app service
