Search content API fails with CQL error for cql=lastModified>="2020/11/10" but works for type=page

I am using this API :

For cql=type=page the pagination works fine.
But when cql='lastModified>="2020/11/10" is passed it fails with the following error : 

CQL was parsed but the search manager was unable to execute the search. CQL: 'lastModified>=\"2020/11/10\"'. Error message: There was an illegal request passed to S&S Content Search API : HTTP/1.1 400 "}

Is this a REST API issue?

1 answer

On drilling down on this, figured out that the cursor generated for the next page when the cql='lastModified>="2020/11/10" is passed, contains a "%2B" character set, which passed in the REST call gets encoded to "+".

In order to fix this, I had to escape the %2B in the cursor by replacing it with %252B.

Ideally, cursors sent by Atlassian should not have standard urlencode character-set , as these are passed in the resource path of the API.
