Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services: How to encode unicode to utf-8?



I set up the Description collection in the app, and saw the unicode string that was not encoding during the log.
I have the corresponding  sourcetype CHARTSET set to AUTO.(Translated to UTF8, but there was no change.)
I wonder why this problem has occurred, and how to deal with it.
The current environment is Windows 10, Splunk 8.0.5, and Splunk Add-on for AWS 5.0.1.

In addition, in Splunk Web I see letters as Unicode forms when viewed as "raw," but normally encoded when viewed as "list." I wonder why there is a difference in what is seen.

Viewed as "raw"


views as "List"
