    PROBLEM:

    Form rule session assignments not displayed correctly when the rules have unusual names. In the Automation Server Rules tab, hovering the cursor over a rule name highlights the sessions to which that rule is assigned.

    If the rule is a Form rule and the rule name has unusual characters or spaces in the name, the highlighting will not work. 

     


    CAUSE:

    Certain characters is rule names should be avoided until a fix is delivered. The characters ";" and spaces are known issues. Further test cases are being run by development.


    SOLUTION:

     

    As a workaround, only the characters "A-Z", "a-z", "0-9", and "_" (underscore) should be used in Form Rule names.

    For example, "This Is My Rule" will not trigger highlighting correctly, so "This_Is_My_Rule" should be used instead.
