Rules and Guidelines for Special Characters

Rules and Guidelines for Special Characters

You must use different syntax for commands that contain folder names or external IDs with commas, special characters, or spaces.

Folder Names and External IDs Containing Commas

Follow these rules and guidelines when you run commands on Windows:
  • Place single quotes around folder names that contain commas.
  • Place double quotes around the entire argument.
  • Place a back-slash before each of the two double quotes.
For example, if the folder names are test1 and test,2 and test3, you will use the following syntax:
RunTests --folderNames \”test1,’test,2’,test3\”
Follow these rules and guidelines when you run commands on Linux:
  • Place single quotes around folder names that contain commas.
  • Place double quotes around the entire argument.
For example, if the folder names are test1 and test,2 and test3, you will use the following syntax:
RunTests --folderNames ”test1,’test,2’,test3”

Folder Names and External IDs Containing Spaces or Special Characters

Follow these rules and guidelines when you run commands on Windows:
  • Place double quotes around the entire argument.
  • Place a back-slash before each of the two double quotes
For example, if the folder names are test1 and test@2 and test<space>3, you will use the following syntax:
RunTests --folderNames \”test1,’test@2’,test<space>3\”
Follow these rules and guidelines when you run commands on Linux:
