Url string with REST - ksenkowski - 04-14-2011 03:50 AM


I noticed something odd with what we are sending to webpagetest.org via rest. When we send a url that has an ampersand in the string (like example.com/index.aspx?AWSFlag=N&Zip=60061&Name=Bob) the entire url string is not passed. It stops at the first &. Any suggestions why that might be or how we can avoid it with out PHP?



Just answered my own question. I swapped out the & for %26 (ASCII) and the tests ran correctly.

Yep, you need to url-encode the query parameters before sending them, otherwise the request itself breaks on the & :-)
