· Attempted Solutions:
PDN recommends using DSS json/escapeSpecialCharacters) which we tried and it didn’t work. There is a HFix-23862 associated with this that was given for version 7.1.x so ideally it should work for our version which is 7.4 but it’s not working.
And also verified PRSYSMGMT for the JVM setting "file.encoding" - it is set to UTF-8.
