Policy name allowed to be created with space in it.
Even at 6.3 it is possible to create a policy with a space or blank in the name, however once it is created it is not possible to edit, save, start or stop it.
So you open the workflow editor and create a new policy, if you put in a name like "test_policy_for blog"
it will open the policy and allow you to create the policy wanted.
When you try to save it, it will come up with a window with the following information:
KFWITM170W A policy name must:
a) start with a letter,
b)Contain only letters,numbers,and underscores
c) End with a letter or number
d) be less than 32 characters
It does not give you your policy name and if select OK the policy is saved.
It is then found that there are issues accessing this policy.
A fix is not possible for this and so it should be checked that a policy name is valid when it is created.
