Http Request Activity - Response conversion character

Hello team,

I have a problem trying to get information from JSON and i don’t know how I should solve this and which approach is the best.
when i download the json it has special characters like \u004A.
I am using the Http Request activity to download the information to a file.
What is the way to convert these special characters?

“name”:“F\u00fatbol” to “name”:“Fútbol”

here is my activity and file

thanks in advance for you help!
regards!


Response Status: Completed
Status Code: 200
Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

i cannot upload file (new user) so, here is a part of the file

{“sports”:{“1”:{"_doc":“sport”,"_id":1,"_sid":1,“name”:“F\u00fatbol”,“stage”:false},“2”:{"_doc":“sport”,"_id":29,"_sid":29,“name”:“F\u00fatbol sala”,“stage”:false},“16”:{"_doc":“sport”,"_id":16,"_sid":16,“name”:“F\u00fatbol americano”,“stage”:false}

welcome to the forum:

give a try on following:
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Unescape(unicodeString)

just to showcase that it is working refer to this sample:

Is that encoding coming from your server response or is the HTTP Request activity encoding UTF-8 characters?

Hi @Tudor_Sandu,

yes, that encoding coming from the server (the server is not mine). i have used a simple python script to download the json and save in a file and solve my problem.

Hi @ppr

thanks for your answer… it works!

@mgfj2009
perfect. just do your final testing and when it is passing the test just flag the solving post as solution. So others can benefit from it.
