You observe Malformed XML violations on valid XML, even with the relax_unicode_in_xml flag set. The same can apply to JSON with the relax_unicode_in_json flag.


False positive Malformed XML violations may still be reported.


Valid XML containing unicode characters is passed through ASM, and the relax_unicode_in_xml flag is enabled.



Fix Information

XML and JSON unicode now operates as expected when using the relax_unicode_in_xml or relax_unicode_in_json internal parameter. To set these parameters, run the following commands: /usr/share/ts/bin/add_del_internal add relax_unicode_in_xml 1. /usr/share/ts/bin/add_del_internal add relax_unicode_in_json 1. bigstart restart asm.
