    Insert from url: semi-column encoding



      Insert from url: semi-column encoding


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Mac (Yosemete) and Windows (Windows 7 Pro)

      Description of the issue

      Insert from URL fails to encode semi column properly.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      The situation is this one :
      A FileMaker script calls FMServer 13 WPE using Insert from URL (http, not https)
      Credentials are passed in the url : http://login:password@server/...

      This script has been working in FileMaker 12 and 13 for a long time. And the url returns a proper result when copied to a browser location field.

      I found out that there was a semi-column in the password. I removed it from the password (security) and adapted the URL and... bingo! works.

      Previously I had tried to uncheck the Encode checkbox (new in FileMaker 14, but it had no impact)
