  • When using the API 'API_MATERIAL_STOCK_SRV' you enter a material which contains a special character, after executing the API it brings back no results.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

1. Within the request you enter a material eg. 'TG10-R+S'

/sap/opu/odata/sap/API_MATERIAL_STOCK_SRV/A_MatlStkInAcctMod?$filter=Material eq 'TG10-R+S' and InventoryStockType eq '01'&$select=Material,Plant,StorageLocation,InventoryStockType,MaterialBaseUnit,MatlWrhsStkQtyInMatlBaseUnit

2. Press GET / Execute which shows no results.


The material number includes a plus sign: 'TG10-R+S'


Not all signs can be used without Encoding in a URL.  The plus character + has to be replaced by %2B

 The new request:

/sap/opu/odata/sap/API_MATERIAL_STOCK_SRV/A_MatlStkInAcctMod?$filter=Material eq 'TG10-R%2BS' and InventoryStockType eq '01'&$select=Material,Plant,StorageLocation,InventoryStockType,MaterialBaseUnit,MatlWrhsStkQtyInMatlBaseUnit

The request is processed following the general rules regarding URL-Encoding:

A URL is composed from a limited set of characters belonging to the US-ASCII character set. 
These characters include digits (0-9), letters(A-Z, a-z), and a few special characters ( "-" , "." , "_" , "~" ).
