3355849 - How to avoid URL encoding of query strings in Rest adapter


The REST URL contains some dynamic part in query string. XPath Expression is used to retrieve the value from an XML payload. There are some specific characters in XML payload. You observe that the dynamically constructed parts of the query string are encoded. However you would like to avoid URL encoding of query string and just keep the original specific characters in REST URL.

For example: URL Patten: https://<host>:<por>/<path>?code={code}

Value Source: XPath Expression
Pattern Element Name: code
XPath Expression://code

In payload: "code": "RTFENk="
In message log character '=' is encoded to '%3D', shown as Calling server: https://<host>:<por>/<path>?code=RTFENk%3D
