Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

After copying an access policy, you receive an error when trying to open the copy: Unable to load accessPolicy '/Common/my_policy_access_1_1' from source. In version 11.5.x, there was no name resolution, so this issue appeared only because of name truncation. Beginning in version 12.0.0, bot name resolution, truncation and _x reduction happen simultaneously.

Impact

Unable to copy the policy properly.

Conditions

When policies have with names ending with _1, _2, etc. For example, my_policy_access_1_1, my_policy_access_1_2, etc.

Workaround

Export the policy, and then import it with reuse.

Fix Information

Copying is fixed for these conditions.
