ArticleID on configuration manager with special symbols

Hi folks,

I have a simple question regarding ArticleID on configuration manager.

As I found the link(https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/develop/reference/core/clients/sdk/ccm_softwareupdate-client-wmi-class), ArticleID is a string data type and its maximum length is 64 characters. I try to create a custom catalog internally, I wonder if ArticleID is allowed to have special symbols like hashtags or underscores or hyphen-minus if the length is less than 64 characters?

Thank you for reading this.

    Hi, @CalgaryFlame

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    As you mentioned, article ID is a string data type, so it is allowed to have special symbols like hashtags or underscores or hyphen-minus.
    If it is a UInt32 data type, we can only use numbers.
