The Unescape URI transformation unescapes any characters in a string that have been escaped.


Escaped characters replace the unsafe characters in a URI string. They are represented by a triplet consisting of a percent sign followed by two hexadecimal digits (for example, %20).

If the docname value were

  • mysite.net/lending%20and%20leasing%20forms/document%20library/credit%20application.doc

then the value of x-docname-unescape would be
