Error description

  • While creating or updating remote profile for SFTP users using
    API calls, an exception is thrown when you use backslash for the
    SFTP user.
    An external application sendings files to external agencies
    through SFG, and the call is through the B2B API. The issue
    occurs
    when creating or updating the profile as the SFTP user name
    contains a backslash.
    
    When using the backslash character, the following error occurs:
    
    <NS1:Envelope
    xmlns:NS1="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
       <NS1:Body>
          <NS1:Fault>HTTP PUT Request for RemoteProfile failed: 400
    Bad
    Request {
      "errorCode": 400,
      "errorDescription": "API000385: Invalid element: Remote user
    The
    following characters are not valid:  !  @  #  %  ^  *  (  )
    +  ?  , <  >  {  }  [  ]  |  ;  \"   and space. Please try
    again"
    }</NS1:Fault>
