Error description

  • When searching for certificates by key ring name, help panel
    C2R3KR5 does not properly describe the search arguments that
    may be used for key ring. All search arguments documented now
    work.  It is now documented that an argument of .** may be used
    to locate ring names qualified ring names with periods.
    Help panel will reflect the following:
    Key ring name
    Enter the key ring you want to select. It is possible to use a
    filter to select more than one key ring. Filters can consist of
    % (one char), *(>0 char), .** (zero or more qualifiers, or :
    (search).
    

Local fix

  • For key ring names that contain a period, an EGN search filter
    will allow their display, and will now be documented.
