401 Unauthorized when special characters are used in rest template request

Dear Community,

I'm again facing issues when special characters are used in rest template requests towards Confluence: Confluence returns 401.

Getting a page with title "Test 1" works. Getting a page with title "Test ä" or "Test &" however don't work.

A working example:

https://edrup-dev4.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content?spaceKey=CT&title=Cite%20source%201&expand=body.storage%2Cversion

Not working:

https://edrup-dev4.atlassian.net/wiki/rest/api/content?spaceKey=CT&title=Cite%20source%C3%A4%C3%BC%C3%9F%201&expand=body.storage%2Cversion

Remark: when I HTML-escape the Umlauts in the sample before JWT signing works but Confluence is then not able to find the content.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Andreas
