iTest is substituting '%5B' for '[' in REST request url
My REST request URL contains few special symbols like ‘’. when I add the parameter having ‘’ symbol to the URL, ‘%5B’ is being substituted instead of ‘’ PFA How to use ‘’ in my request url? ![alt text] : /storage/temp/3697-rest_request_img.png
I tried to solve this by manually adding a GET step giving the REST request URL containing special symbols but still request is not being sent. and the below error is shown corresponding to the step in Test case: "Invalid Substitution in field: Unknown command 0" Basically my URL is of below format: http://serverIp/action?username=value&password=value&dnode.description=value&dnode.name=value Where dnode.desc , dnode.name are parameters.
The encoding will changes requested URL for all special symbols. For example: [ = %5B ] = %5D % = %25 and so on. This is called percent encoding and is used in encoding special characters in the url parameter values. Please let us know if you are facing any issues.
