HTTP API Call Issue from Adobe campaign classic Java script

Hi experts,

 

I am making a HTTP API call from javascript. The API takes a JSON object as the request body. So I am using the following script for creating the JSON object for request

 

var eml = "abc.com";

var fst = "abc";

var lst = "com";

var obj = {email: eml, first_name: fst, last_name: lst};

httpRequest.body = JSON.stringify(obj);

 

When I make this call the API responds correctly.

But if the variables : eml , fst , lst  has double byte characters like Japanese, Chinese, Korean characters, then the same API call is failing with a error "Request Body should be a valid JSON object."

 

If I call the API from Postman, with the double byte character set up, then API works.

Any idea why it is failing from Adobe campaign javascript?

Hello @ujjyals87155580,

 

Do you have character coding set up in the Headers?

 

It will look something like this

http.header["Content-Type"] = "application/json;charset=utf-8";

If this does not work

Try this  before adding it to json object.

JSON.parse(eml)

 

Let me know if that works.

Thanks

Hi @ujjyals87155580,

take care of escaping special characters.

You may call a following function to escape text before putting it in JSON:

 

String.prototype.escapeSpecialCharacters = function() {
return this.replace(/\\n/g, "\\n")
.replace(/\\'/g, "\\'")
.replace(/\\"/g, '\\"')
.replace(/\\&/g, "\\&")
.replace(/\\r/g, "\\r")
.replace(/\\t/g, "\\t")
.replace(/\\b/g, "\\b")
.replace(/\\f/g, "\\f");
}; 

 

Regards,

Milan
