Unable to add workspace, folder or file in Vibe if the name variation is due to an extended character

This document (7014541) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell Vibe 3.4 with MySQL database
Novell Vibe 3.3 with MySQL database

Situation

Scenario I:
User receives an error message stating 'The title Tëst already exists' when they try to add a workspace or folder with title "Tëst" and another workspace or folder already exists at the same level with a similar name such as "Test" (note the difference is the letter e and ë).

Scenario II:
User receives an error message stating 'This folder requires that all uploaded files have unique filenames. A file with this name already exists in entry: test.jpg' when they try to add a file with title "tëst.jpg" and another file already exists at the same level with a similar name such as "test.jpg" (note the difference is the letter e and ë). In this scenario, the folder's setting to enforce unique file names is turned ON.

Resolution

This is a known limitation in Novell Vibe when configured with MySQL database. As a workaround, change the name of the new workspace/folder/file and try again.

Cause

This is due to the default collation setting on various columns in the Vibe MySQL database which compares strings in an accent-insensitive way.

Status

Reported to Engineering

Additional Information

Vibe installations setup with MS-SQL or Oracle databases do not face this problem.
