Opened: Apr 07, 2017
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

Private/Custom subscriber ID types may contain delimiters which may cause difficulty for external tools to parse HSL and Splunk logs.

Impact

Third party tools that parse logging output may fail to properly parse LSN translation logs.

Conditions

When a subscriber ID contains special characters typically double quotes (") or commas (,) it may become difficult to parse as these delimiters are used to separate different items in the log message.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

None
