3031508 - Provide Additional Data button routes back to Home Page if First name has space or has 2 names (ex: Test Test) - Onboarding


In Add New Hire to Onboarding, whenever the Firstname has space or it has 2 names (ex: Test Test), upon clicking Provide Additional Data Button, it will route back to the Home Page.

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Add New Hire to Onboarding

2. Create an Onboardee with 2 names in First name (ex: Test Test)

3. Fill out the necessary required fields

4. Click Provide Additional Data Button -> it will route back to the Home Page.

This should not be the expected behavior


The root cause of the issue is in the URL decoding. It is converting the extra space as '%20%' and due to which, the URL is getting corrupted and it is redirecting back to Home page.


This issue also happened earlier with Chinese names. The code fix for this issue and its already available in b2105.
