"." (dot) in Object Repository folder names causes issues on Test Objects


On v6.1.1 and v6.1.2 (current latest) i noticed that folders with “.” in their names causes issues on the child Test Objects:

  • Unable to save newly created Test Objects
  • Unable to open renamed Test Objects

This is an example of an Object Repository path with issues:

My workaround was easy: remove the dot from the path.
But it took a time to find out the issues were caused by the name of a parent folder.


In KS 7.9.1, I could create a Test Object with a folder name google.com.

See I want to name TestObjects in my native language for the reason
