How to escape double quotes in an adaptive card

I am trying to display the title from a vstfs work item in the adaptive card.  If the title contains double quotes, it cuts off the string at the first quote.

Are there examples on how to escape this so i can display the entire string?

e.g. Title: Test "work" item

Hi @anuchinta ,


The single quote mark ( ' ) is used to escape characters in Microsoft Flows.


'"Work" should output "Work", but you may have to add a second escape i.e. '"Work'"

@MatthewHolmes , thx for your reply.  It does not seem to work.  Is there a way to replace the double quotes with space chars?

So I tested this out using the Adaptive Card designer, and it automatically adds a back slash (\) before double quote marks. I would give that a go!


Hi @anuchinta ,
