UI prevents importing to sub-partitions a certificate with a forward slash in the name.


Import operation fails. The system posts the following error: Name cannot contain '/' nor '\'. User cannot use the GUI to import a certificate in a sub partition.


Create a sub-partition such as /Test/MyPartition and import a certificate with name /Test/MyPartition/myCertificate to target the /Test/MyPartition.


For a certificate with a forward slash in the name, use tmsh to import it to a sub partition.

Fix Information

The system now allows forward slash in the certificate name to be imported to a sub-partition.
