Navigation Link fails to load a Form or an External Link
When the navigation item is saved with special characters, the user is unable to open the form. It throws an error message "Due to either a session timeout or unauthorized access. You do not have permission to access this page".
Upon clicking a navigation item, an error is reported:
Due to either a session timeout or unauthorzed access, you do not have permission to access this page.
When you create a custom navigational link, if special characters are used such as /, \, &, #, %, they break the capability to redirect the user to a form or to an external link.
Resolving the problem
When you build a custom navigational link, refrain from adding a Special Character (/, \, &, #, % ). They must be omitted so that the form renders when clicked.
