    I have created a text field on user in which i am saving the sharepoint login name which i have to use for some further api requests.

    Sharepoint login name is saved in the following format: i:0#.f|membership|[email protected]

    But when i query the same field in batch class strangely | character is automatically encoded to | and following system debug is shown

    i:0#.f|membership|[email protected]

    I want the original value stored to make a valid API request. Also i wanted to know the reason why this is happening.

    Hi Shubham,

    The vertical bar ( | ) is a computer character and glyph with various uses in mathematics, computing, and typography.

    The vertical bar is encoded in Unicode at U+007C | Vertical line (124decimal · HTML |).


    So to decode the HTML character in Apex class

    You have to use unescapeHtml4()

    For Example:
    string str ='Ришат|';
    string decode = str.unescapeHtml4();
    system.debug('@@@ '+decode);

    Hope this helps you.
