Archivelink - special characters in filenames?

We've run into an issue where our users are trying to upload and attach pc files to SAP - which normally works fine. However, lately some users are trying to upload files with special characters in the filenames, which our content server is rejecting. The characters in question are the single quote and the equal sign. Is there any Archivelink (or other) configuration we can look into to prevent SAP from accepting filenames that contain these characters?

    Hello John,

    There are characters that are forbidden in the Document name:

    / : \ = '

    Then also this character cannot be used at the beggining of the name doc #

    also the file name cannot be longer than 128 char.

    Hope this can be useful
