Severity: 4-Minor


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


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


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.
