When sharing a responsive dashboard with a group that contains an & character in its name, the dashboard does not load, with the error:

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


Steps to Reproduce

  1. Enable responsive dashboard by setting the system property glide.cms.enable.responsive_grid_layout to true
  2. Open any dashboard
  3. Click on the Sharing icon on the top-right in order to share the dashboard
  4. Click on Add groups, users and role
  5. Add a group containing an & character in the group name
  6. Refresh the page

Expected behavior: The dashboard should load without any messages.

Actual behavior: The dashboard does not load and displays the message "The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference"


This problem is fixed in Kingston.

As a workaround, rename the group and replace the & symbol with the word and. This will prevent the error from occurring.
