URL iview url encoding problem

Former Member

I am no sure if somebody else also has this problem.

I created a URL iview. One of my parameters value has blank in it. For example, "my name". When I edit this iView, if I input the text "my name" as the parameter, after I save it, it is automatically converted to "my+name". If I input the text "my%20name", it is converted "my%2520name". I cannot let the content by "my%20name" after I save. I think it is SAP's bug.

Does anybody know how to work around this problem?

Hi Harry,

it is common practice to encode spaces in the query part of an URL with "+" instead of "%20" so this is not a bug.

The bug is rather in the page that you are capturing with the URL iView because normal libraries for URL decoding

support this syntax.

If you absolutely need the "%20" in your query, you can create the URL iView from scratch and specify the URL

with the parameters in the syntax:

You can ignore that in step 3 of the iView wizard the "&" signs are encoded as "&", it works anyway.

Just be careful not to change the iView afterwards or the spaces will be converted to "+" again.

Best regards,
