    ****************************************************************
    When you try to submit a CQ defect from an RQM test script
    execution, the CQ record is not populated with any data if
    the URL request has over 2,084 characters.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 7.1.2.7 and 8.0.0.3.
    
    When using FireFox, CQ can handle URL requests of up to
    65,535 characters.
    
    Internet Explorer has a URL restriction of 2,084 characters,
    but CQ now populates the record with as much data as it can
    given this restriction.
