I’ve got a bit of a dilemma. I’m trying to query the content delivery API for my application using the
in operator (Content Delivery API | Contentful), but some of the values I want to query on have commas in them.
I know, I know…why do you have IDs with commas. I’m pushing to put a restriction in the content model to not allow this, but currently we have references to these IDs in another DB so getting that updated will take some time.
In the meantime, is there any way to escape a comma in the query? E.g., my query parameter on the API looks something like this,
'fields.sku[in]': productTemplateIds.join(','), where
productTemplateIds is an array of strings that can have commas in them. I tried URL encoding them, escaping the commas with a
\, single quotes around them, and double quotes around them. None of that works. Seems weird they wouldn’t have some way to escape a value that you query on (also, I can’t find anything in their docs about this).
