TitleCan't replicate 'line' fields with hashes in them to Perforce
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf you have a field with a # in it in the defect tracker, and if that field is replicated to a 'line' field in Perforce, the contents don't get replicated correctly to Perforce because the # is interpreted as the start of a comment.
AnalysisSee the original customer report [1] and my response [2]. The solution is to not use 'line' fields in Perforce for anything that might contain free-form text.
