Hi,

I have special characters in passwords I'm setting. I use characters like & and <.

I have set the passwords in my settingsFileGenerator.xml file (edited using Excel) yet when I try to deploy, importing bindings fails with the following error:

Error thrown is "EXEC : error XMLPP103: Output was not well-formed: An error occurred while parsing EntityName.

In this case the password's first character is an ampersand.

Will using '&' in SettingsFileGenerator.xml we edit using Excel solve the issue?

The solution is to use the entity reference in SettingsFileGenerator.xml. So if a password is &Hello you enter it as...
 &amp;Hello
