While trying to insert a new Account which has Unicode characters in the Name, in the Application the Name inserted has mostly question marks instead of the actual characters.

The following message has been tested:

POST the following to the REST URI ( ..../siebel/v1.0/service/Account/CreateAccount/) with Postman. /Body - with raw option/

The account was created with the following name: ABCDE_�ÉÖÜÓ�ÚŰ�áéőúüóöí
(In the Oracle DB is the same incorrect name.)
