Error description

  • Submitting or modifying a CQ record through a REST URI link that
    fills (mandatory) fields fails if they contain ampersand.
    Every field value with an ampersand and any field value that
    follows is ignored.
    If the sign is in a mandatory field the action will fail because
    of the missing value(s).
    If it is contained in the last non-mandatory field value, the
    record will be submitted but with that field remaining empty. In
    my opinion this is even more serious because the user might not
    be aware and the record will have incomplete data.
