Having Issues While Trying To Pass %26 For Ampersand "&" Symbol In REST (GET) API Call in OSB (Doc ID 2889634.1)

Oracle Service Bus - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Unable to use "&" ampersand symbol in REST API URL query.

When trying to send a string "Company=Name & Address, as an Example",

The string gets decoded before it goes out of OSB as:   "Company=Name & Address, as an Example".

Since the callee is also decoding the string from their end, it comes out wrong.

To prevent a double decoding, the ask is NOT to decode the string and leave the octets as is.
