Issue with unicode text values

Arpit Khandelwal (111) | asked Feb 13, 12:59 p.m.

 While creating an Defect I am filling description with unicode value "!¡ÿ࿏῾က⿏‐㿿、俿䀀忿倀濿怀翿瀀迿耀龟退꒿ꀀ뿿뀀쿿쀀힟퀀ᅬ豈" and when I am fetching the same defect by using API I am getting different unicode value corresponding to description field. I have tried using string comparator, it always shows values are different although by seeing it seems both values are equal.

There is not enough information in the question to even start answering. E.g. which API is used. 
Regardless of that, EWM internally uses UTF-8 encoding. I don't know if there is any conversion done in the Browser.

I am creating Defect from UI and setting description as "!¡ÿ࿏῾က⿏‐㿿、俿䀀忿倀濿怀翿瀀迿耀龟退꒿ꀀ뿿뀀쿿쀀힟퀀ᅬ豈" and then when I am fetching the created defect by id using "" API, the description which I am getting become change. 

So the last unicode letter "
豈" is creating an issue although by looking at the description value from API seems similar but it has different byte code when compare to the one which is given in post request. You can compare on any unicode comparator.
