I have a login dialog which validates the user trying to login to application. External interfaces also try to communicate with this application . An external application will launch browser with RAP application URL with parameter's of credentials.

Surprising thing is the parameter values are decoded but not correctly. For eg '=' must have beeen decoded to '%3D' but it decoded url has '='.

Original value sent from external interface is :
qYZRPb+97K4TVZBFytqJZOuxHwwbLNSvQpJoeqDCWuVuk76eWHE/Hp31Iq1k vvosKDqEAv6AKFZFgEjaqNpjnI0ZRcK8ko5VqcMbt6hQQggsaiGQSc1k2fIG uXEg7GatehlCc2wNvxaxdNFIZWtQnU69dzUT6rwRiJ8eHXY+imE=

Inside login service we get:
qYZRPb 97K4TVZBFytqJZOuxHwwbLNSvQpJoeqDCWuVuk76eWHE/Hp31Iq1kvvosKDq EAv6AKFZFgEjaqNpjnI0ZRcK8ko5VqcMbt6hQQggsaiGQSc1k2fIGuXEg7Ga tehlCc2wNvxaxdNFIZWtQnU69dzUT6rwRiJ8eHXY imE=

'+' in original value is decoded to ' ' ( space ) but '=' is not.

Because of this authentication fails. In debug mode, I changed the value to original (replaced space with +) , then it worked fine.

Any ideas ?

sorry, I don't quite get which RAP API you use for passing/encoding
parameters, or to put it another way, in which part of RAP do you suspect
a problem?

BTW, you're passing credentials as URL parameters? This sounds dangerous.
