3280162 - Error occurs when message definition contains '%' special character


A rule has been configured to trigger a message with the special character '%' in it. But, an error is thrown instead of the message text (in time off take rule).

If the same message is used in a job information rule, then no message is shown as the rule fails during execution.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.
