Description Preethi Thomas 2008-04-14 09:48:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Special characters are allowed to be in the name for Config channel. But if you
enter left and right parenthesis or curly braces, its omitted from the name
without a warning.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a config channel
2. Give special characters in the name.(eg: #$*":'?
3. Enter label and description and save.
4. The config channel with the above name is created.
5. Now Edit the above config channel properties
6. Add ( , ) , { or } to the name.
7 Click Edit Config channel button.

Actual results:

( , ) , { and } are omitted from the name without any warning message

Expected results:
1. I am not sure if special charters are allowed as names for config channels.

2. If ( , ) , { and } are excluded from the the permitted characters there
should be a warning message.

Moving to 5.2. We don't give warnings in 5.1 either.
Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2012-03-15 11:44:38 EDT
Still present on Satellite 5.4.1.
Comment 5 Clifford Perry 2014-05-09 06:20:49 EDT
We have not addressed this specific bug for over 4 years. This bug was reported as either Satellite 5.0 or 5.1, both of which have now End of Life and not supported. I am closing out as wontfix to clear from backlog. 

Please re-open if you disagree and wish further review.
