OSB Always Adds a "Charset=Iso-8859-1" to the Content-Type Header

(Doc ID 880489.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Service Bus - Version 2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A Proxy Service and a Business Service configured in OSB. Request sent to the Proxy Service with the following content-type header: Content-Type: MIME_type_here.

The Proxy Service is a pass-thru and so is the Business Service. In the outgoing request from ALSB, the content-type header is:
Content-Type: MIME_type_here; charset=iso-8859-1

The "charset=iso-8859-1" was automatically added by ALSB.

Ability to configure ALSB not to add the charset attribute in the header and pass the content-type header without making any changes.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a pass through proxy service and business service
2. Invoke the proxy using the input with content-type as "ANY_MIME_TYPE"
