Enter the text that you wish to encode or decode:
The SAML Message is sent as a HTTP GET parameter in the HTTP-Redirect binding (used for exchanging AuthNRequests, SAML Logout Requests, and SAML Logout Responses). You must url encode this message before sending it.
By using this tool, you can encode and decode SAML GET parameters for your messages. Get the url-encoded version of a SAML message or get it as plain text by pasting the url-encoded version. It does exactly what it says: it decodes URLs from URL-encoding and encodes them back, easily and quickly. Data can be URL-encoded without hassle or decoded into human-readable formats.
It is another name for "percentencoding", which is the encoding of information in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). Even though it is called URL-encoding, it actually belongs to the main set of Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), which include both Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and Uniform Resource Names (URNs). This media type is also commonly used in the preparation of "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" data, such as HTML form data submitted as part of HTTP requests.
