    Is there a list of all unpermitted characters?

    Hello Allen.

    The only unpermitted character is the vertical bar (|).

    Hm, I think there are more disallowed characters, see this post:

    In any case, I look forward to an official article on the matter.

    Hello, Allen,

    Thanks a lot for pointing that out to me. I think the way I wrote the Question in this article is not the best. This article is referring exclusively to the creation of organizations.

    I have just made the test and I am able to create organizations with the following characters: [ ^ \ ] *

    The only we can't use is the vertical line. I am going to talk to Joseph to get that list into an article.

    Thanks for your help.

    Not allowing the vertical bar creates an issue in our case for syncing an organization's name between Zendesk and Salesforce. Since the vertical bar is a legitimate character that an organization could use, it's strange that it's a disallowed character.
