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

  1. Enable responsive dashboard by setting the system property glide.cms.enable.responsive_grid_layout to true
  2. Open any dashboard
  3. Add a cascading filter containing an & character in the name or look up name to the dashboard.
  4. 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.
