REST API Modular Input: Why are Arabic characters not encoded properly?

Engager

Hi everyone,

I'm using the REST API Modular Input to get data from a web page (php). The thing is that data is a mix of arabic and french characters. I specified the charset in props.conf, but that data I'm getting is still not correctly encoded. I tried both CP1256 and ISO-8859-6 codes.

Can anyone please help me figure that out?

Here's the sourcetype config and the specified encoding :

[ivd]
 pulldown_type = true
 LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n]*)>
 NO_BINARY_CHECK = true
 DATETIME_CONFIG = CURRENT

[host::GI-PC]
 CHARSET = CP1256

and as you can see in the screenshots the rest api seems to be okay, still the search results are not as they should be.

Thank you very much for your respose. I am working with a json response. Do you think this parameter has anything to do with this issue?
