Module parameter with a “&”-sign in the name does not resolve correctly in the execute script tab in an Ivanti Automation module

Version 2

    Problem

     

    Consider the following scenario:

    • An Ivanti Automation PowerShell module is created
    • The PowerShell script is set in the script tab
    • A module parameter is set with a “&”-sign (Ampersand) in the name like R&D.

    When the module is executed the module parameter in the script tab is truncated after the “&”-sign (Ampersand) and the job will fail.

     

    Solution

     

    This issue is resolved in Ivanti Automation 2018.2.
