Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a SOAP connector.
  2. Send Rich Text data in the SOAP request.
  3. The SOAP Connector fails to parse the rich text data correctly. The special characters get encoded in the generated request.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules is identified as root cause of the issue.


Here’s the explanation for the reported behavior:

In the XML Stream rule referenced in Connect-SOAP,
set the Mapping Mode to “Literal XML” for the node that is used to send special characters. The mapping mode of the parent node or any other node does not matter, you can keep them as is.
