Using accents in custom fields values using REST API (Zephyr Scale Cloud)

I want to define a value for a text custom field using accents (ex: Elevé), using the REST API in Zephyr Scale Cloud.

putting the data as

"customFields":{
        "TextField":"Elevé"
    } or
"customFields":{
        "TextField":"Elev\u00E9"
    }

.does not work. I can set it through the GUI, it works, and getting the value from REST API works too (returning "Elevé")

How can I encode the value so the result is what expected ?

    Interesting question.  SmartBear presumably has customers around the world where accents are a requirement, so there must be a way for this to work.  I don't know the answer but would like to know how this work.  As a random guess I wonder if it has anything to do with language settings - perhaps on the Atlassian side of things.  If you don't get a response from the community, you can reach SmartBear support here: SmartBear Support

     

    It would be great if you could share their answer 🙂
