P4DTI issue job000399

TitleSome issue titles can't be replicated
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionA customer found that the replicator couldn't replicate a particular issue from TeamTrack to Perforce, because the Perforce server could not update the job. Perforce claims that a required field is missing but in fact the field is present.
Here's the text of the error message from Perforce:
(P4DTI-7065) Error in job specification. Missing required field 'P4DTI-rid'.
AnalysisThis appears to a be a defect in the Perforce server: it is not parsing the job correctly. My evidence for this is that it's possible to reproduce the defect without involving the P4DTI; see [1] for my bug report to Perforce.
We found that the defect went away if the fields in TeamTrack were edited so as to remove double-quote characters. This might just be coincidence.
This is Perforce job 6628.
