When a SharePoint List or Library name contains a forward slash, the category for the Service Object does not expand to allow for mapping of a method.

Resolution

As the Service Object surfaced is a K2 artifact, the following special characters are not allowed and should be avoided:

&!@#$%^&*()+=-[]\\\';,./{}|\":<>?_~ ≈≠=≤≥≤<>≮≯∷±+-×÷∫∮∝∧∨∑∏∪∩∈∵∴⊥∥∠⌒⊙≌∽√ ┼┽┾┿╀╁╂╃┬┭┮┯┰┰┱┱┲┳├┝┞┟┠┡┢┣┍┎┏┐┑┒┓┒─┄ §№☆★○●◎◇◆□℃‰€■△▲※→←↑↓〓¤°#&@\︿_ ̄―♂♀ 〖〗【】[]{}《》「」『』々‖…—•ˉ〃 ㄅㄉˇˋㄓˊˊ˙˙ㄚㄞㄢㄆㄊㄍㄐㄔㄗㄧㄛㄟㄣㄇㄋㄎㄑㄕㄘㄨㄜㄠㄈㄌㄏㄒㄖㄙㄩㄝㄡㄥ

The forward slash can be deleted and the SmartObject regenerated if you wish to make use of the Service Object in a custom SmartObject/method.
