Vote Count: 0

Duplicate ID:	CF-3701046

Problem Description:
When a colon ":" is in the name of a scheduled task the task errors out. Additionally if you try to pause the task you get an error.  When I try to edit the task to rename the task I get an error.

Actual Result:

Big Ugly error

Expected Result:

I expected it to work.

Any Workarounds:

Manually edit neo-cron.xml to remove the colon then create the task again without a colon.

This is most likely related to previous bugs with colons in the scheduled task URL.
