Allow hyphen ("-") in URL path of an exposed API Web Method

Integration
New

In an Outsystems project we find ourselves building in an application in the middle of a landscape where communication with web services is not always there. This situation makes it very difficult to test a complete flow since dependencies of other systems are quite often down.

In order to surpass this situation making the application more independent for testing purposes, the idea is to try to have a module with a mock of those services and just changing the entry point on DEV / TST environment to make it work.

The problem is the external parties' web services have hyphens ("-") on the URL path of the web methods and when we are creating the mock service to expose, Service Studio considers the "-" an illegal character.

At the moment we can't use certain characters in REST APIs URL paths, such as the character "-"


This idea's purpose is to include characters such as "-" in the list of valid URI characters

Isn't this the duplicate of this idea ?
