Private dictionaries and Namespaces

Private dictionaries and Namespaces

We ran into an issue with some email templates in converting from RC2006 to RC2008.3 where Namespace values from Private service dictionaries were not populating correctly in RC2008.

In the upgrade process from RC2006, any private dictionaries are converted to actual dictionaries. They are created in the Dictionary Group UPGD: PRIVATE DICTIONARIES and the dictionary name is based on the service name: PRIV_ServiceA.

What I found as we were testing is that the Namespace parameters in Email templates (and, presumably, conditional statements and other places) no longer worked.

The reason is that the Namespace Parameter for a private dictionary did not use a dictionary name, e.g. #SERVICE.DATA.Field1#. In order for the RC2008 version to work, we had to add dictionary references:  #SERVICE.DATA.PRIV_ServiceA.Field1#.
