Description :The definition of a Reporter Task for Report with special character in its name fails without errors.
No task is scheduled. Only when reopening the scheduled object an error pops up in UVC.
OS: All
Cause type:
Root Cause: Tasks cannot contain special characters
Report definitions used to allow special characters that are not allowed in DUAS Tasks Names, and as a DUAS task name is created (in the internal scheduler specified in UVMS) to schedule the report generations and including report definition name in its own name, then it generates errors as task can not be created.
Now, those invalid characters are not allowed anymore in Report definition's names, so task can't be created.
For already existing Report definition with invalid characters for task names, the scheduled part will be inactive, and errors in the logs will indicate it.
