Problem encoding/decoding introducing in a JSON list data

L4 Transporter


I've some urls to introduce in a JSON list the command used are this one to encode:


#encode to ASCII



In the context the variable is perfect, however inside the JSON list it's not. Even if I call variables from inside the JSON list to outside is perfect too.

It's only inside the JSON list where differents characters appear.

Hi @Josep,


Need more information on this is issue. Maybe share the code you're running. 

Sorry for not giving more information, I have to be carefull with it. Here it's a smaller part of the program, where a JSON list is loaded, and parameters are changed, then JSON List is updated. The question is about why is not encoded in ASCII even if I force to do it inside the JSON List.


def main(domain, url):
    domain			=	domain.encode(encoding='ascii',errors="ignore").decode()
    url				=	url.encode(encoding='ascii',errors="ignore").decode()
    allJSON     	=   demisto.executeCommand("getList", {"listName":"JSONList"})
    data        	=   json.loads(allJSON[0]['Contents'])
	newdata  		=   {domain:{"domain": domain,"url":url}}

	if type(data) is list:
