PaperVision Enterprise Search URL (PVESearchURL.aspx) does not work when the UserName parameter contains a backslash character.


When a user configures the PVESearchURL.aspx script with a UserName parameter that contains a backslash (e.g. domainusername) the following error is returned even though the included the correct UserName and Password: "The system could not log you on. Make sure your User Name and Entity ID are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case."



This error is caused by not including an escape character () for the UserName. This example shows an invalid PVESearchURL script and would return an error:

http://PaperVision/PVESearchURL.aspx?UserName=ab&Password=test&EntID=1&ProjID=1&IndexFields=NAME&IndexValues=John Doe&ResultsType=List

This example shows a valid PVESearchURL script (including the needed escape character):

http://PaperVision/PVESearchURL.aspx?UserName=a\b&Password=test&EntID=1&ProjID=1&IndexFields=NAME&IndexValues=John Doe&ResultsType=List
