Non-Break Space In Rest URL Causes Oracle API Gateway to Crash When Trace Filter is Used (Doc ID 2086263.1)

Oracle API Gateway - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


During testing of OAG, an issue occurs when a higher level ASCii character instead of a normal blank space is added to a REST URL call.  The value of the space in the particular test used was Char 160 (hex: A0) which is a non-break space. This is something that can be added using a normal word processor or a spreadsheet tool (Insert – Symbol).

It was noticed that whenever this special character is added to a REST URL, and a Trace Filter is included in the policy being used, the Oracle API Gateway instance throws an exception in the trace file and crashes.
