3214421 - Dots (.) are missing from the file name when the reports are exported


  • The file name changes when Canvas reports have dots in the page name. 
  • The dots are also omitted while exporting Table reports. 


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Select any Canvas or table report that has dots in the report (table) or page (canvas) name
  2. Export the report in any format
  3. You'll notice that the dots (.) are missing:
    1. e.g: The page name is "Canvas.Report", when it is exported the filme name is "CanvasReports-Component1..."
    2. e.g: The report name is "", when it is exported the file name is "report_table_report--..."


This is the expected behavior. If you feel the behavior should be changed, please feel free to submit an enhancement request:
