This just in. bb-manifest.xml files will not upload to SaaS when the XML does not meet the standard: Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Second Edition) .As we don't check this in Self and Managed-hosted systems, you may have had URLs in your bb-manifest.xml file using the following format:

<url value="itemanalysis/showItemAnalysis?action=display&;course_id=@X@course.pk_string@X@" />


These should be written as follows because the & character in XML must be encoded:

<url value="itemanalysis/showItemAnalysis?action=display&amp;course_id=@X@course.pk_string@X@" />
