URL encoding



When I configure HTTP Transaction sensor to GET the URL: http://example.com/hash?files=/data/0730a418-fa84-4a4a-b7cc-6b3

It translates it t: http://example.com/hash?files%3D%2Fdata%2F0730a418-fa84-4a4a-b7cc-6b3 which my receiving part can not digest.

So it encodes the = to %3D and / to %2F.

Is it possible to disable the HTML URL encoding per sensor? If not, how can I workaround it, saying that I realy need to deliver the URL as is, without the encoding.

encoding http sensor transaction url
