CauseThis 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 two ways:
  1. If you have migrated from an earlier version where the special characters were allowed, your connectors cannot be edited, nor can you use any of your existing attributes for further connector definitions.
  2. 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.
This is a known issue reported in engineering ticket ACM-104737.
 
ResolutionThis issue is being investigated by the Engineering team in order to provide a permanent resolution in a future release.
