How do I retrieve commit data from git tag that has slashes via rest api

Hi everyone.


I am trying to retrieve commit data for a tag that has slashes in the name.  

Ex tag: 


I am using the following rest GET call but getting a 404 error.

Is there a way I can properly format this call to retrieve the commit data for the tag above?

Thank you so much for your help.

Encode the forward slash, dash and period characters in UTF-8 format, like:



Thank you for your response.


It still produces an error:


<title>HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request</title>


Interestingly if you trying to do a range of commits between 2 tags with the same naming scheme using params since and until.  Same commits endpoint works without any issues.  Its only a problem when I want to get commit data for one tag.  Maybe there is another call that would give me that data?
