Issue:
When searching for a Task in a Workflow which has an '$' (Dollar sign) in the Name (i.e. JOBS$WIN.1 or WIN$JOB2) the search will not find the Task.

Cause:
Tasks with the special character "$" in their names (for example, JOBS&WIN.1) are not found when searching for them in the Workflow editor or in the Workflow monitor. The search field in the Workflow editor and in the Workflow monitor supports wildcard characters such as "?" and "*". They are transformed into an regex expression.
 
Resolution:
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available.

Fix versions:
CA Automic Web Interface (UI) 12.1.2 - available for download
