JAR file name populates incorrectly in import wizard



Filename populates incorrectly in the import wizard while importing a JAR file. The JAR file information does not populate in 'Select a file from the server to import'. Error displays and user is unable to enter the filename manually.

Error Messages

Value cannot be blank

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Navigate to Designer Studio > Application > Distribution > Import
  2. Select the file to import

Root Cause

A defect or configuration issue in the operating environment. A question mark is present in one of the file names. The Question mark causes file parser to abort as the file parser is unable to handle files with names containing the character  '?'.


As a local-change, rename the file such that the file name does not have question mark.
