JIRA::REST Error[400 - Bad Request]: The character '%' is a reserved JQL character


 I run this query using perl script 


my $search = $jira->GET('/search', {
jql => "project = \"MNAND QRA ITALY\"",
maxResults => 1000,


generally it works correctly, but a couple of days ago it started to respond with

JIRA::REST Error[400 - Bad Request]:
- Error in the JQL Query: The character '%' is a reserved JQL character. You must enclose it in a string or use the escape '\u0025' instead. (line 1, character 8)


Which could be the issue???

Hi @Michele D_Armento ,

Give it a try with this JQL value "project%20%3D"MNAND%20QRA%20ITALY""

It doesn't work ... same answer

jql => 'project = \"MNAND QRA ITALY\"' How about this? Also ensure that you are using https

same issue

connection is https

it is couple of days that can't resolve jql ... before it worked
