HTTP get file with a specific encoding

Hi all,
I need your help. In my Flow I have an HTTP GET request that returns the file content in the body section from a API. My next step is to post this data via another HTTP request with the file attached. 

 

Unfortunately, I can't find a solution for the encoding in the body that comes with the request. As I'm from Sweden we have Å Ä Ö and our general encoding is OEM 865. The result is that my next task will fail as it doesnt allow the unknown characters.

 

Below are the request and the results with the character marked in red. I've tried to add content-type as a header Text/plain but it doesn't seem to do any difference. I hope that someone can help me. 

 

- Do you have any ideas what I'm missing?  Is there a posibility to encode the values in from the request? 

 

Many thanks in advance

 

//Fredrik from Sweden

Re: HTTP get file with a specific encoding

Hi @FredrikUmea,

 

As far as I am aware converting the charset like that doesn't work.

 

But maybe a workaround can be the creation of a customer connector?

In this thread I see somebody was struggling with a similar issue and changed the charset of the custom connector to utf-8: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/General-Flow-Discussion/Questions-for-custom-authorization-and-H...
