What does this mean? My /nav/default.xml looks like:

<nav>
    <view name="Introduction" default="true"/>
    <collection label="AU (Audit & Accountability)">
        <view source="all" match="AC - "/>
    </collection>
</nav>

Its a generic error, but the culprit is that you need to escape the & character - in xml it is &amp;

Also remember that match is the name of the xml file, not the label. But if you don't get the match right, the menu just won't appear in the nav and no error will be issued.

Lastly, when troubleshooting the nav it helps to use the endpoint:

https://localhost:8089/servicesNS/admin/<app name>/data/ui/nav?refresh=1
