Ensure API definition does not contain non-UTF-8 characters

We are looking for a way to validate that our API definition only contains UTF-8 characters.  Certain special characters break functionality when deploying to our API platform.  Is there any way that this can be validated in SwaggerHub while creating the API?

  • Hi,


    There is nothing in the SwaggerHub editor which will detect non UTF-8 characters and flag them as invalid.  It may be better for you to copy your spec and put it in a UTF-8 check tool to flag any characters that are not UTF-8 encoded.  See the one below which may help.
