Special characters, such as ampersands, in selected breakdown element cause the following error to appear when you generate a chart:

'The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference.'

The following second error occurs when you export a PDF if there are commas, ampersands, or special characters in breakdown elements in widgets:

'The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup.'

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Performance Analytics breakdown that includes a breakdown element with a name containing an ampersand.
  2. Navigate to Performance Analytics > Dashboards.
  3. Select the breakdown from the dashboard.
  4. Export the chart.


Remove any special characters from the names of breakdown elements.
