This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:
I have a need to use a search filter in SASL mappings where it looks like something
the & is being substituted like \1 as seen with tracing turned on. I have tried escaping it as \& and \\&. I can't find any documentation on how the substitution is handled with the filter. Is it not possible to utilize a normal ldap search filter like this in SASL mappings?
