KB-1545 Unable to select any applications or data sources in the Appian Deployment Automation Manager servlet


On the servlet page from the Appian Deployment Automation Manager Shared Component, the dropdowns to select an application and a data source are blank:

There are no errors in the application server log, but the following error appears in the browser console:

Uncaught SyntaxError: missing ) after argument list


One of the applications on the site has an apostrophe in the name which causes an error in the JSON parsing used by the servlet.

This issue has been reported to the developer of the Shared Component.


Remove any apostrophes that may exist in Application names on the site.
