#2546 - Upload File Names causing an issue

Closed General Question created by peterjakob Verified Purchase 4 years ago

I am having an issue when users upload a file with a non-standard character. If there is maybe an apostrophe in the file the upload works but I cannot retrieve the file until I rename the file in the folder and in the database.

Are there any plans to put some sort of file name mask or validation prior to uploading the file?

    Unfortunately I cannot grant access to our system due to nature of the data but I can tell you about our environment;

    SuiteCRM 7.8.1 running under Linux.

    If a user uploads a file called "TPO's Broker.xlsx" - it cannot be retrieved.

    If I go to the folder the system and find the file and remove the apostrophe and then do the same in the database it will work.

    "TPO's Broker.xlsx" - does not work "TPOs Broker.xlsx" -works
