Problem:

Publishing reserved characters to Quality Center causes invalid characters being appended to the requirement name

Resolution:

QC reserves a number of special characters that cannot be used in the name of a requirement. If a requirements name contains one of these characters and is published to Quality Center it will display incorrectly  in Quality Centre. The following reserved characters should not be used in a requirement name if you intend to publish to Quality Center:

\/:”?’<>|%*

The attached screenshot shows what a requirement name will display like in Quality Center if it contains one of these characters in Caliber.
