IssueWhen attempting to map a custom attribute in an AFX connector capability, the following error occurs and the connector definition is not saved. In the user interface go to AFX > Connector > {connector name} > Edit > Capabilities tab > {name of capability} .
 
Special characters other than '_' and '$' are not allowed for variables in the Mapping field.
 


In the following example, the variable ${User.DKM-User_Email} has a hyphen which causes the error.

CauseThis is a known issue reported in engineering ticket ACM-104737.

This is a change in product behavior. Starting in 7.1.1 special characters other than '_' and '$' are not allowed in variable names used in AFX connector mapping fields in RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle. 

This issue manifests in the following ways:
  1. Any existing variables in the system that have special characters are not converted to the required format.
  2. If you have migrated from an earlier version where the special characters were allowed, your connectors will not deploy, nor can you use any of your existing attributes for further connector definitions.
  3. You can still create custom attributes (Admin > Attributes) with special characters other than '_' and '$' but when you go to map these attributes in AFX, you will get the error.
ResolutionThis issue is resolved in the following RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle patches:
  • RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.1.1 P07
  • RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.2.0 P02
