Deployment fails when proposition name contains "/"



Whenever the name of the proposition contains the special character, "/" (forward slash), you are unable to deploy that proposition category in DMa.

Error Messages

Deployment failed: javax.persistence.PersistenceException: javax.persistence.PersistenceException: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 4

Steps to Reproduce

Deploy a proposition with '/' character in its name to observe the issue.

Root Cause

Forward slash ('/') has been used as delimiter for propositions in OOTB design.


Usage of any special character in proposition name/ID field except forward slash ('/') is allowed as it has been used as a delimiter in code.
