2608397 - Extra Spaces in Field Become &#160 After Upload via Migration Tool

Symptom

You have executed a migration and noticed that special characters &#160 were migrated instead of spaces in certain fields.

Environment

SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer 1802 and higher;
SAP Business ByDesign 1802 and higher.

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Business Configuration work center;
2. Select the Overview view;
3. Search and select the desired migration;
4. In the migration tool, select the file and execute Migration Step by Step.

Cause

Since a space at the end of a name is irrelevant, the system interprets the space in its HTML number (i.e. &#160). The same occurs if a space is added after the name and before a bracket; since a name cannot have a bracket, the system interprets the space before the bracket in its HTML number as well.

Resolution

Simply remove the unnecessary spaces from the template and this should no longer occur.
