Bulk Upload Fails on AWS S3 URL

I am trying to do a bulk upload referencing an AWS S3 key as follows

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
		<name><![CDATA[This is a test of ftp]]></name>
				<urlContentResource url="https://gettyfull.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/large-test/2026-347_p1.mp4?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJPVQ53VLFLTZZWBQ&Expires=1441284548&Signature=P6IuF6jDcKQ4OldOwNfZjkQlFB4%3D" />

However, it seems as if the URL is invalid for some reason …

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><mrss><error>Log file is not ready: Error: Could not load xml    [4938129962], EntityRef: expecting ';'
 at line 16 
EntityRef: expecting ';'
 at line 16 </error></mrss>

Is there any way around this ?

I see you have an expiration date. Are you sure you are leaving a long enough window for downloading it?

Yes, I can get it via a browser … I also tried escaping the &


Seems as though the Backend is unable to process URL’s with &'s … this must be a bug ?

Ok, it works if you escape the '& with


as defined in the XML spec …

Yup:) as it should, indeed.
