Known Affected Releases
Symptom: when you go to Operate>Applications and Services and create an application, the following validations apply to the application name text box: 1. the application name has to be minimum of 4 characters. 2. the initial 3 characters must not match to any existing application name. Now validation # 2 is not letting put customer's descriptive names to there applications, say: aol-messenger - category - instant-messaging/ sub category - consumer-multimedia-messaging aol-messenger-audio - category - voice-and-video/ sub category - consumer-multimedia-messaging aol-messenger-ft - category - other/ sub category - other aol-messenger-video - category - voice-and-video/ sub category - consumer-multimedia-messaging aol-protocol - category - instant-messaging/ sub category - consumer-multimedia-messaging It looks at aol- and does not let you create an application with name aol-Sid, if aol-messenger already exists. EVEN THOUGH I am using a different category and sub category to add aol-Sid, then to what aol-messenger is added to. The above ones are system created applications and thus can have the similar name (atleast firt 3 characters), even under the same category and sub category. but user defined applications are validated for the first 3 characters of there name to be unique, which does not let the customer give user specific names, which suits there organization. Conditions: when you go to Operate>Applications and Services and create an application, and try to create a new application.
