    URL action does not pass filter having '&' in the value

    ashish.tamboli

      Hello ,

       

      I am using a URL action filter to pass a value to a parameter. My URL looks like this

       

      ServerName/t/TO-CDO-ETBIA/views/LendingQualityDashboard-EN/<GetReportView>?:linktarget=_self&:embed=y&GetDesc=<CODE_DESC>&:refresh=yes&:showShareOptions=true&:toolbar=top%3F

       

      The highlighted part in the URL is having

      &GetDesc  :- this is a parameter with string type. its current value is empty.

      =<CODE_DESC>  :- this is a field from which the value is passed when user selects any value.

       

      In the field CODE_DESC there are values like

      ALBERTA REGION,

      ONTARIO REGION,

      BC & NT REGION,

      SOUTH REGION

      NS REGION

       

      among the above values the 3rd value "BC & NT REGION" is not picked up by destination parameter correctly, because it has the '&' character in it. the destination parameter has partial value like "BC "

       

      Once i click on the action the url is like as below.

      server name/ComparisonbyProduct?:linktarget=_self&:embed=y&:refresh=y&GetRegion=37070&GetDesc=BC%20&%20NT%20REGION&:showShareOptions=true&:toolbar=top%3F#1

       

      I understood that the uRL contains the value but execution fails because of the & sign.

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Regards,
