Error description

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    Using the launch feature in the Tivoli Portal client, when
    using symbols that get resolved from an internal name to a
    display name do not work, the internal name is used in the
    launch definition.
    
    RECREATE INSTRUCTIONS:
    Create a launch definition in a workspace view. In the
    arguments field use the following arguments.
    
    www.ibm.com\n\&-1022
    
    Press the "evaluate button", the -1022 will resolve correctly.
    However when you save the launch definition, reopen and try to
    launch, the -1022 does not get resolved to the display name so
    the launch URL does not work.
