Splunk DB Connect 2: How to change SQL to URL-encoded SQL query for dbxquery?

Explorer

I have used DB connect 2 to estabilish a connection to an Oracle database. Now I want to use dbxquery to search the oracle table, but to run the dbxquery command, I must first URL encode the SQL query and I have no idea how to do this. For example, I search a table using SELECT * FROM "USER_ADDR" but how do I change this to a URL encoded query and where I can learn how to do it?

Most of the time you need to replace space with %20. For other characters check http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp

SELECT%20*%20FROM%20%22USER_ADDR%22

I suspect the JSON error you receive is not because of query encoding. After query is executed and database returns the results, the content has a special characters which are not JSON friendly, since results is returned through REST API and in JSON format. To verify it simplify your query and instead of asking for all columns change it to:

select%20C.CHAIN_ID%20from...

Also you don't need to encode comma to %2C.
