Issue ID




Spaces and symbols of the Project name are changed to hyphens causing "Invalid characters" warning in the Bundle Identifier

Settings Window


How to reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Go to the Player Settings
3. Go to the Player tab and observe the Bundle Identifier

Expected result: Project name is not changed and no warnings
Actual result: Hyphens are added to the Bundle Identifier and the "Invalid characters have been removed from the Application Identifier" warning appears

Reproducible with: 2020.3.31f1, 2020.3.32f1, 2021.2.17f1, 2022.1.0b13, 2022.2.0a8
Not reproducible with: 2019.4.37f1, 2020.3.30f1

Note: Reproducible with macOS, Windows

  1. Resolution Note (2022.2.X):

    This is the expected behaviour.

    The change in the validation of the Application Identifier has been done in order to prevent having missing segments in the default Application Identifier in case either the Company Name or the Product Name contains only invalid characters (see case 1352216). The warning is there just to tell that invalid characters have been removed from the default Application Identifier, so it won't mirror the Company Name and the Product Name exactly. In case the Application Identifier itself is invalid, then an error will be displayed instead of a warning.

    As always, the Application Identifier for each platform will be updated only when opening the Player settings of the corresponding platform. If the default Application Identifier is not the desired one, it can always be changed after checking the setting Override Default Bundle Identifier (or Override Default Package Name, for Android).
