Using the apostrophe character in the CN was was not an issue when using RCM 6.7 [411]
All supported platforms
IssueRCM CN encoding Issues with apostrophe character ( ' )

The following workaround, which was working with build 411 does not work

build 411, we needed to modify the variable "regExp" in the file "x-templates\x-enroll-msie-dn-script.xuda" to be able to submit a certificate request with the apostrophe character, as bellow:

//var regExp = new RegExp( "\[<>\047\042~!@#$^&*|\134;+_\]" );

var regExp = new RegExp( "\[<>\042~!@#$^&*|\134;+_\]" );

CauseThe apostrophe character is not allowed during end entity certificate enrollment using IE.
We assume that the above changes are the custom changes and it bypasses the validation for apostrophe.

The above regex modification is working on build 411 but not working on build 423 because we have fixed vulnerability issue in RCM 6.7 build 420.

ResolutionThe issue has been fixed in RCM 6.7 build [424]
