HTTP::payload collection mangling UTF-8 characters
The HTTP::payload command doesn' seem to ba able to handle UTF-8 encoded characters. When I capture the HTTP payload into a variable and then manipulate it and update the HTTP payload before sending the request into our application names any unicode characters are being mangled, so "Héro" becomes "HÃ©ro".
I've tried creating a simple HTTP virtual server with an iRule that just logs the HTTP payload in /var/log/ltm and I can see its not our application that is causing the issue, it appears to be the HTTP::payload feature.
I saw an article about using binary scan to fix a similar issue but when I tried it it didn't make any difference at all.
Help me f5'ers, you're my only hope!
