base64 decoding fails because of padding

I am trying to decode base64.

I have tried three apps

base64 helper
base64
TA-base64pl

none of them are able to decode the entire string, because as soon as the first null/pad character is read, splunk stops.

does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you!

It's been a couple of years since this was posted, but I've encountered the same issue.
Does anybody know if there is a work around to get past the padding?

Cheers,

SailorMan

Hi Log_wrangler,

is that on Windows? there are some things that seams not to work on Windows, like this one here https://answers.splunk.com/answers/550028/how-to-convert-64-bit-number-from-decimal-to-hex.html?chil... maybe you juts found another feature 😉

cheers, MuS
