  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • TRIRIGA Integration Object's xml Post Type requests are not
    correctly encoding UTF-8 characters.
    
    As a result, double-byte characters, although they appear
    correctly in the server.log when the Integration
    Object's 'Debug' is clicked, are seen by the receiver as '??.'
    
    The problem does not happen if JSON is used.
    

Local fix

  • Use JSON instead of XML
    

Problem summary

  • The issue was that post type xml requests were not correctly
    handling UTF-8 characters. The fix is to include UTF-8 content
    binding when the entity is being added to the request.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolved an Integration Object Http Post scheme issue, where
    mult-byte characters were not being correctly handled in the
    outgoing HttpRequest. Please note with this fix, if for some
    reason your Integration Object Http Post scheme configuration
    leaves the Content-Type field blank, and the Content-Type is
    not defined in the Headers field, then the Content-type of the
    HttpRequest will default to: Content-Type: text/plain;
    charset=UTF-8. On prior releases it defaulted to Content-Type:
    null.  This is targeted to the 2H2016 release.
    

Temporary fix
