Using & in password field does not work for VMware flows

HI,

 

Using OO 10.

We have a password that has an ampersand.

 

If I use a username/password combination without the ampersand I get no luck.

 

I have tried all ways to use it in our VMware operations, but no luck.

 

I just get this error:
