Getting Data In

JSON with escape character in field name

Path Finder


I have  JSON source where one of the fields has an escape character in the field name. Well actually I cannot see that in highlighted mode or in the extracted field list, it appears as "Report Refresh Date", just in raw view: "\ufeffReport Refresh Date". 

Naturally, the searches are not working with what appears as the "Report Refresh Date". If I select the field it appears as " 'red dot' Report Refresh Date", the search work, but can not be saved - it's "forget" the red dot, as any copy/ paste attempt does out of the search bar.

How can I rid of this? By adding 

FIELDALIAS-alias1 = "\ufeffReport Refresh Date" AS "Report_Refresh_Date"

to props.conf would help?
