Issue while fetching API Response of a REST API which is Gzip encoded

Hi everyone

I am trying to fetch some information(which would be of Json format) by a API call using HTTP Request activity. But the response which I get is some garbage values as it is in encoded format. The issue is, when I make the API Call, the API returns data to us in Gzip encoded format which should be decoded to get the Json data. Can anyone help how to decode it using UiPath as I didn’t find any option for that.

Hi - Have you received any feedback on this issue or were you able to resolve it by decoding the gzip? We recently upgraded Orchestrator to v2021.4 and are facing the same thing. Receiving junk data in the response and it seems like due to the gzip encoding.
