RSA Version/Condition: 5.5.4
 
Issue
When trying to rename an existing Value within a Values List field, a 'Text Value cannot contain a colon' validation message is preventing a save.

 

User-added image
Cause
In earlier version of the product, it was possible to exploit a bug where colons could be added to a Value in Value Lists.  
In the development of Archer, colons are a reserved character for the Text Value of a Global Values List Value and are not allowed within the value.
Colons are also used during Data Imports to nest Values in a hierarchy or parent/child list.

 
Resolution
Attempting to save a Value with colon in the Text Value now results in a "Text Value cannot contain a colon." validation prompt. 
To resolve this issue, you will have to remove the Colon and rename the Value without it.
