    I realize the web service call would automatically convert the backslash to a forward slash and i dont want that to happen since i am, let's say, monitoring C:\ Drive, Here's the section key i am supposed to call:

     

    http://10.1.2.52/rest/probe/DJ-NIMDOM_domain/DJ-NIMDOM_hub/DJ-NIMDOM/cdm/config/disk/alarm/fixed/C:\/warning/threshold

    <key>/disk/alarm/fixed/C:\/warning/threshold</key>

     

    And, the line below shows the results when calling:
    requested resource not found: /DJ-NIMDOM_domain/DJ-NIMDOM_hub/DJ-NIMDOM/cdm - looking for key 'disk/alarm/fixed/C://error/threshold'

     

    Is there a way to solve this if I only want to retrieve this exact information? I do know that it is possible to get all the configurations if i access the config file as a whole, but is there a way to solve this if I only want to retrieve this exact information?

    You want to add the extra options to the existing value in the "options" key, for example, currently you have:

    options = -Dfile.encoding=UTF8

    You want it to be:

    options = -Dfile.encoding=UTF8 -Dorg.apache.catalina.connector.CoyoteAdapter.ALLOW_BACKSLASH=true -Dorg.apache.tomcat.util.buf.UDecoder.ALLOW_ENCODED_SLASH=true

    (it will all fit on one line). Each -Doption needs to be separated by a space.
