Issue :

When trying to use an URL that includes the hash (#) character. The Web Agent (by default) is changing this character and it writes the encoded version of the character.

An example below:

> Original URL

server.domain.com:21100/segu-login/#/login

> Changed URL

server.domain.com:21100/segu-login/%23/login


Environment:

Webagent 12.52SP1CR04 on Apache 2.4 - Redhat 6

Cause:

By Default with 12.52 and above webagent with do some Localization and will try to encode/decode the complete URL, it is true for accented but also for special chars

Resolution :

Set the ACO parameter:

    > Localization = No.
