|Issue||Error: "Identity Source Name" contains invalid characters.|
The indicated field(s) on this page require your attention.
Identity Source Name contains invalid characters.
|Cause||Adding an Identity Source name with the '&' ampersand character|
Ampersand is not allowed in the directory source name. Remove this character. For example you might have a Identity Source (IDS) of a domain that contains two disticnt sets of users.
Perhaps this Active Directory contains Users from subdivisions of a Parent company. For example EMC is the Parent company while RSA and VMware are subdivisions. Naming the IDS as RSA&VMWare though practical is not allowed in the IDS name.
Utilize a name such as RSA-VMware to resolve the error.
