Symptom

The following behavior occurs in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC):

  • URL encoding does not work properly when using external links in a hyperlink.
  • Special characters like '%' are encoded differently. 

Environment

SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create SAC Table widget and set hyperlink with External URL.
  2. Input any dummy url with URL parameter having a value used in the table widget.
  3. The value is URL encoded.
  4. Click the link in the table.
  5. You can see the "%" is encoded again.

Cause

This is a limitation in the product as the encoding is managed by the encodeURI() JavaScript function.

Resolution

  • The encodeURI() escapes all the characters except: A-Z a-z 0-9 ; , / ? : @ & = + $ - _ . ! ~ * ' ( ) #
  • More information can be found about the function in the following page: encodeURI().
