      Description

      The following characters get encoded in the dropdown menu for a PRD report instead of being rendered:

      • + / : ; = ? [ ] ^ \
        i.e: the parameter "test*me" gets rendered as "test*Me"

      Steps to reproduce:

      • create a new report in PRD
      • add a datasource for the parameter list based on a field from a table that contains any of the previously listed special characters.
      • create a parameter based on the new query ( select drop-down for the type of parameter display )
      • publish to Pentaho BA 5.1
      • execute the report ( notice the encoded parameters in the drop down menu )
