XML literal input to HTTP-SOAP connector is being URL encoded in MetaMatrix query

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I'm trying to invoke a web service operation "createCatalogEntry" that takes an XML string as one of its parameters.

  • Whenever I pass an XML string as input, MetaMatrix performs URL encoding to escape all the special characters. In other words, we escape the "<"'s to "&lt;", etc.

  • The web service expects a CDATA block of XML, without any URL encoding. So it tells me my request doc is malformed, and the request fails.
  • How can we turn off URL encoding, in order to pass an unencoded string to the web service?


  • MetaMatrix Enterprise Server 5.5.x
