2870959 - Ampersand in the position title displays incorrectly for Operator fields on the job requisition page


Since the b1911 release, when a user's position includes an ampersand character (&), it will display incorrectly for Operator type fields on the job requisition page.

Instead of '&', the system is showing "&"

This is linked to the Enhanced People Search feature and is a b1911 release issue.

The Enhanced Search feature automatically adds the position title after the operator name.

However, the system is currently not handling the ampersand character correctly.


This is a known defect with the b1911 version of the system.

Engineering have now patched this issue by disabling the people search feature for Recruiting only, as described in KBA 2877280 - "Person search behavior in Recruiting".

The permanent fix will be available with the b2005 release.
