This section describes the naming requirements for Masking Engine objects which are allowed to be created / renamed manually.
Affected configurable objects¶
For all of the above:
Leading/trailing white space is not allowed
The following special characters are not allowed:
|\\||double back slash|
During an upgrade of a Masking Engine to a 6.0 or later release, a name with leading or trailing white space will be automatically trimmed, and a counter value might be appended to the end of the name to prevent a naming conflict. For example:
|pre-upgrade name||post-upgrade name||upgrade change|
|" alg_SecureLookup"||"alg_SecureLookup1"||leading white space trimmed and counter value appended|
|"alg_SecureLookup "||"alg_SecureLookup2"||trailing white space trimmed and counter value appended|
If any name from the above mentioned "configurable entities" table has a restricted special character - an upgrade will fail with the corresponding error message.
Create / Rename¶
If an attempt is made to create a new entity (or to modify the name of the existing one) with leading or trailing white space or any of the special characters listed above, the operation will fail on a 6.0 or later release with a corresponding error message.
Environment Export - Import¶
If any entity name exported from a pre-6.0 version contains leading or trailing white spaces or the special characters listed above, the import operation will fail on a 6.0 or later release with a corresponding error message.
If a sync bundle from a pre-6.0 version contains leading or trailing white space or any of the special characters listed above, then the Sync import operation will fail on a 6.0 or later release, with a corresponding error message.
