The Adobe Connect API Accepts Special Charaters (+,$,# etc) if Executed with Encoded Values
Description : The Adobe Connect Web Services API accepts special characters such as (+,$,# etc) if you encode the characters. For example:
If a user Login employs the credentials shown below on the User Interface, it will work without issue.
User Name :- email@example.com
Password :- Passw0rd
However, when the user uses the following API “/firstname.lastname@example.org&password=Passw0rd”
The plus sign is interpreted as though it were a space and the Login looks like this “abc email@example.com” resulting in the following:
- <status code=”no-data”/>
In order to employ these special characters, you must encode them and then execute the API. For instance in the above case we will execute an API as shown below :
Special character encoding reference information is found under URL :- w3schools This reference is useful for those users who are trying to run API with special characters.
