Issue:

A PX Policy that has HTML as part of a data element or action may experience problems with the special characters such as angle brackets (<>). You may run into an issue because HTML angle brackets get replaced with &#60; and &#62; respectively; this is normal and is understood by HTML. The problem is that the PX logic can't deal with these characters.  You'll get an error on running the PX stating that ('&' encountered' '<' expected).

Environment:
Identity Manager 12.6.8 CR2 or higher
Cause:

This is a bug in Identity Manager that was fixed in 12.6.8 CR2. If you are on a version lower than this you'll need to upgrade the product to resolve the problem. 

Resolution:

The fix for this bug is a user defined property called AllowHtmlTagsInPX, to use this functionality you'll have to add this property in your management console. Setting AllowHtmlTagsInPX to true will turn on the fix, and setting it to false will turn the fix off. 

The User Defined Properties are located under the CA Management Console -> Environments -> [your environment] -> Advanced Settings -> Miscellaneous.
