6.124 XML Tags in Object Names and Description Cause Errors When Using the REST WS-API With XML

There are no restrictions on the content that can be used in an object name or description within Oracle VM Manager, however if XML tags are present in a name or description field for any object within Oracle VM Manager and your WS-API client is using the REST API with an XML media type, errors are likely to occur.

In general, you should avoid inserting XML into the name and description fields within Oracle VM Manager. However, if this problem already exists, you may see an error similar to the following:

javax.xml.stream.XMLStreamException: ParseError at [row,col]:[1,432983]
Message: The character sequence "]]>" must not appear in content unless used
to mark the end of a CDATA section.]

Either remove any XML tags from the names and descriptions of all objects within Oracle VM Manager, or use the REST API with a JSON media type. Alternatively, you can use the SOAP API with an XML media type and this error does not occur.
