  • KB168629205: Automation Engine - Illegal shrink value from custom SmartName in Step & Repeat ticket
Skip to end of metadata

Summary

While resolving a custom SmartName for the shrink value in a Step & Repeat ticket, Automation Engine returns the following error:

ERROR-PARAMETER "resolveshrink" UNDEFINED
Illegal shrink value ResolveShrink-FISHER


Symptoms

While resolving the SmartName, everything appears to be correct in the SmartNames view.
However, the problem persists when a workflow with the Step & Repeat task that has this SmartName for shrink value is launched.

Solution

If you create a SmartName with a hyphen (-) in its name (e.g. ResolveShrink-FISHER), the SmartName cannot be resolved correctly since the hyphen character can be used in the formula for some Step & Repeat SmartName fields.

In order to solve the issue, the name of the SmartName should not include a hyphen (or other special characters: +, - ,*, / ...).
