Understand why RRT Application Names are sometimes truncated under
AMC > Applications in the TEP Navigator
When a script is exported to ITCAMfT to be played back on a Robotic Response Time (RRT) agent, the script name is used as the default Application Name.
It is this name that you will see in various RRT workspaces. For example:
In the above example you can see the application name in full.
However, when the same application is listed in the TEP Navigator under Application Management Console > Applications it is truncated, but as you can see the full name still appears in the workspace views.
This happens because the application name listed in the TEP Navigator is derived from the Managed System Name for that application and the Managed System Name has a maximum length of 32 characters.
The full Managed System Name for AMC / T3 entries is constructed as follows:
nnnn is the Application Name
xxxx is the AMC Hostname
KT3? is the Product code + (A)pplication or (S)erver or (C)lient
The number of characters available to display the application name in the TEP Navigator is calculated as follows:
The sum of:
Length of AMC Hostname
4 characters for Product Code + (A)pplication
2 characters for the colons
Subtracted from 32
So, using the example shown above where the Hostname is "cam-amc" and the Script/Application Name is "WRT_PlantsLots8301_64" the resulting full Managed System Name is:
Application Name (truncated to x characters):cam-amc:KT3A
Where x is:
7 (Length of hostname) + 4 (KT3A) + 2 (Colons) = 13
Subtracted from 32
Therefore: x is 32 - 13 = 19 characters
Resulting in a truncated application name of: "WRT_PlantsLots8301_" as seen in the above screen and a full Managed System Name of:
