Delegated Administrator 6.4, Rejects Valid Characters For Email Address (Doc ID 1502607.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Delegated Administrator - Version 6.4 to 6.4 [Release 6.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When using the Delegated Administrator web interface to create or modify a user entry, and keying in the email address, the Delegated Administrator accepts only the following characters:

a-Z, A-Z, 0-9, '-', '_'

If we set the email address to contain other characters in the local part (local@domain), such as '!' or '#' (which are valid according to RFC 2822), and try to save changes, the Delegated Administrator rejects this with the following error:

  "Cannot create user - invalid email address".

This issue also affects the Delegated Administrator command-line interface (commadmin).
