Cascading filter with '&' in name or look up name throws an error "The entity name must immediately follow the '&' in the entity reference" and does not load the dashboard
Steps to Reproduce
- Enable responsive dashboard by setting the system property glide.cms.enable.responsive_grid_layout to true
- To enable the responsive dashboard follow the instructions here Enable Responsive Dashboard
- Open any dashboard
- Add a cascading filter containing an & character in the name or look up name to the dashboard.
- 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 in review and will be fixed in NewYork.
As a workaround, rename the filter and replace the & symbol with the word and. This will prevent the error from occurring.
