Code Fix: After deploying a package, duplicate categories are created in K2 Designer


Issue Description

When you create a package where a category name contains a space and the package contains a workflow, deploying the package results in duplicate categories in K2 Designer.


  1. Ensure you have K2 Five (5.2) installed.
  2. Download the K2 Five (5.2) FP3 from K2 Partner and Customer Portal.
  3. Install the K2 Five (5.2) FP3 to apply the fix.
  4. It is recommended to refresh the browser cache.
  5. The fix will only apply to new packages being deployed. Previous duplicate categories can just be deleted as they do not contain any artifacts.
