Original Message Format Error



Users notice that when attempting to send a SWIFT message with an embedded message that validation errors occur due to tags being on the same line.

Error Messages

Error T33: at line 7, column 21, length 1: extra characters in tag "21" 

Steps to Reproduce

1. Select fast correspondence template
2. Select Embedded message
3. Original Message is prepopulated
4. Copy original message and paste into SWIFT validation tool.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in Pegasystems’ code/rules. ParaEmbeddedMsgBodyS and ParaEmbeddedMsgBodyR attempt to parse the embedded message tags by the period delimitor instead of the expected colon.


Local Change: Modify ParaEmbeddedMsgBodyS and ParaEmbeddedMsgBodyR to parse by colons.
