&^ symbols are not working in login_object password

  • 1.  &^ symbols are not working in login_object password

    Posted 11-21-2018 03:47 AM

    Dear Experts,

     

    I am using a LOGIN_OBJECT which contains the symbols &,^ in the password.

    While using this LOGIN_OBJECT, I am getting the letters only before this symbol.

    For example,

    My Password is Acb&aeare$^12

    I am getting output as Acb

     

    Is there any solution or workaround for this issue? I am using AWA version 12.

     

    Thanks,

    RK

    Hi

     

    if you double the Ampercent in your Login object it should work...

     

    Acb&&aeare$^12

     

    any string with leading & is inerpreted as Script Varaiable (e.g. &myvar#) and must be .. hmm lets say escaped...

     

    cheers, Wolfgang
