Escaped double quotes in HTTP template

Hi,

 

Recently I found that the ${latestEvent.summaryMessage} and ${latestEvent.eventMessage} of Mobile App New Crash events will contains double quote " in the message.

This will broke our HTTP template which try to form HTTP payload in JSON format.

 

May I know how we can escape the double quote of the ${latestEvent.summaryMessage} and ${latestEvent.eventMessage} value?

Our payload template is somethings like:

{

    "summaryMessage": "${latestEvent.summaryMessage}",
    "eventMessage": "${latestEvent.eventMessage}",

    ...

}

 

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Jen

Re: Escaped double quotes in HTTP template

Hi Jen,


Can you try 

'$esc.java(${latestEvent.summaryMessage})' 

Reference: https://velocity.apache.org/tools/2.0/apidocs/org/apache/velocity/tools/generic/EscapeTool.html

You should have single quotes surrounding the key and values in json payload.

If it doesnt work try - $!{latestEvent.summaryMessage.replace('"',"")}

 

Thanks,

Re: Escaped double quotes in HTTP template

Hi Atyuda,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I tried with

{

#set ($newSummary = '$esc.java(${latestEvent.summaryMessage})')

"summaryMessage": "$newSummary"

}

and it returns the payload exactly with "summaryMessage": "$newSummary" 

 

I tried with:

{ "summaryMessage": "${latestEvent.summaryMessage}.replace('"','')" }

but return the same error "SyntaxError: Unexpected token R" which seems unable to convert the double quote.

 

No luck to successfully escpae the double quote so far.

The endpoint required the message to be send in a JSON format which is a double quote format.

Thus I try to set the variable first then only assign it in the json payload but doesn't seems to make it works.

 

Have you able to send out a HTTP template in JSON format that can escape the double quotes?

 

Regards,

Jen

Finally I tested below is working:

{ "summaryMessage": "$!{latestEvent.summaryMessage.replace('"','')}" }
