    Why are there HTML special characters in the Activities object of API call?

      Hi JIVE support,

       

      Our company is using Jive API calls to retrieve user's connection stream from JIVE to our Portal application.

      For example: https://adpworks.jiveon.com/api/core/v3/streams/63/activities

      However, we need to display the data from the object.summary field which contains HTML special characters unfortunately.

      For example: "summary" : "Hi Janice,   Had a chat to Gustaf yesterday and we'd like to push out the launch date to 1 July.  Do I just update that in SharePoint?   Virginia",

      The   is actually a space character and I don't know why it is saved as   in the summary field.

      Currently I have to convert some common special characters into regular characters in my codes, but there are too many of them and it is not convenient.

      Could you provide the approach to resolve this issue?

       

      Thanks,

      Tony Tang
