Getting Data In

How to print unicode as unicode?

I have a JSON data source with data like this:

{"download.doc_title": "GCP-7 R\u00f3znorodnosc, R\u00f3wne Szanse Oraz Szacunek W Miejscu Pracy.pdf"}

If I look at the event syntax highlighted, it renders as I would expect:

{   [-] 
     download.doc_title:     GCP-7 Róznorodnosc, Równe Szanse Oraz Szacunek W Miejscu Pracy.pdf   
}

...but when I run any reports against, it shows up in the browser with the unicode escapes, instead of the unicode characters:

<searchcriteria> | table download.doc_title

shows

GCP-7 R\u00f3znorodnosc, R\u00f3wne Szanse Oraz Szacunek W Miejscu Pracy.pdf

how do I get it to show the Polish rendition?

Similar issue at Best practice for dealing with Unicode codepoints in Splunk ?

But not much help there...

Please set CHARSET = AUTO in your props.conf

The data is apparently being parsed correctly (remember, it displays correctly when syntax is highlighted). Will charset = auto affect parsing or display?

Hi @wegscd!
It affects parsing.

The data has been parsed correctly. This is a display side issue.
