Strange basicAuth

Dear all,

I am getting a very strange error I have a gatling class that works fine with three password feeders

  • json
  • ssv
  • csv

everything worked fine until I added a password that contains a ! and -
now every test still work except the one with the ! and -
does any one know how this can happen.
Even when i hardcoded the credentials it did not work. While the credentials work perfectly in my browser.



How do you send those credentials? query or post params?
How does your server deals with url-encoding?
