Mail Address Conformance Check And Postprocessing Fail On Unquoted Strings (Doc ID 2072122.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Convergence - Version 2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When creating a new calendar event in Convergence 2 with copy/paste of an email address of the form 'foo bar ' into the invitations or reservations section ( = cal resources ), the given data is accepted but turned over to : 'foo bar'

STEPS to reproduce

1. Login to Convergence
2. Create an event
3. Try to invite some string resembling an email address with literal Name
   a. select reservations input area
   b. enter: foo bar
   c. observe: no result found
   d. commit entry by pressing the circled '+'-input
   e. observe: input gets accepted, input area cleared, 'foo bar' is added to the list of reservations
4. Select 'foo bar' from list of reservations
5. Select 'compose mail to' from drop down menu
6. Observe: Mail address lacks the 'crucial part' but consists of 'foo bar'
7. Save the event

With Calendar Server 7 the event does not get created, but gives the error of "The request to the server has failed. (60)"  Which means the end user does not know what has gone wrong

Convergence should not convert given data to invalid addresses.
