    disappears, when for query parameters special characters like
    '<'or '>' are used.
    
    PROBLEM DETAILED DESCRIPTION:
    The personalized BPC Explorer view is stored as XML. When the
    query parameter value contains special characters that need to
    be escaped in XML this causes  invalid XML, as these characters
    are not escaped so far. As result the personalized BPC Explorer
    view disappears.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Within the stored XML the values for query parameters were not
    escaped, so that, in case of special characters in the value,
    invalid XML was generated.
    With this interim fix special characters will be escaped
    correctly so that valid XMl will be generated. This iFix will
    update the BPC Explorer.
