Support » Plugin: WP OAuth Server (OAuth Authentication) » Special characters do not work in REST API?

  • When I try to authenticate using the REST API (/oauth/token/) and my password contains non-alphanumeric characters like ‘”‘, the server responds with “Invalid username and password combination”. The password is correct, I can log in fine if I don’t use the REST API. Also the REST API works if I don’t have non-alphanumeric characters in the password.

    Thank you for reporting this issue. We are going to look into this issue to see if there is anything we can do. I will say that special characters like " or ' need to be escaped due to the nature of the character and code.

    I am adding this to our whiteboard and will see if we can not get an update for you!

    Thanks again.
