Update BPC 10.1 HTML5 Classes

Hi Gurus,

I have a problem using the BPC 10.1 frontend, which was recently migrated from BPC 7.5 to EPM 10.1 Standard version. The BPC Admin page is a web based page and when I try to enter the ID using combination of Letters, Numbers and some special characters. When we enter the special characters, the javascript immediately throws an error saying "Unauthorized characters entered in the ID".

We used these special characters successfully in the previous versions and now I want to check if I can update the HTML5 classes in SAP to remove this exception directly from the code. Is it possible to do it? If yes, how do we go about doing it?

I will greatly appreciate your help.

    PS The use of special characters in an ID field is not a good idea regardless of whether it worked in previous versions.  It often causes issues in the underlying data store and there is very likely a poor rationale for starting the practice in the first place.

    • Hi Abhishek,

      I have to agree with Gersh.  The time to do it is now rather than after the migration, partly because once the migration occurs it will likely be ignored until the next issue comes up and partly because it will be easier to fix it now even though it will take a bit of time. 

      Don't be short term wise (not even sure it is short term wise) and long term foolish!

      Cheers, Mike
