Encode a query object into a URL-encoded query object. A query string is everything after the ? in a URL. Certain special characters, like space : ? / etc., need to be encoded because they have special meaning in the URL itself. For more details see this Wikipedia article.
For example, in this URL:
the query string is the part starting with “name”, and you could create it by using Encode Query with this input
"name": "John Doe",
"region": "North America"
which would encode to this query string:
The usage pattern is: build a query object using Object functions such as Construct, Set, or Zip - this makes it easy to build an object using dynamics inputs from previous steps. Then encode it to a string using this function - or you may choose to use the query object directly with Raw Request.
This method is the inverse of Decode Query.
- data (object): the query object
- output (text): the query string
